Hello! Three weeks ago my neck started to swell. I would feel it as swollen nodes. It does hurt. My cousin told me it could be tmj. Is this true? Please, help me!

Hi! Primary function of the lymph nodes is to filter out germs and other products of infections from specific parts of the body. In the case of neck nodes, they swell when there is a problem in the mouth. So, it could be a dental problem, it could be tmj. You won’t know until you are thoroughly examined by a doc. It may even happen that nodes become tender from rubbing them. It is a natural tendency for anyone with an enlarged lymph node rub it while sitting at work desk or watching TV.
