Hi doctor,

I have a small swollen lump on the left side of my neck. I do not feel sick. But I feel like I have a fever and headache. My teeth look fine, and I do not have sensitivity. Can I have an infection in my teeth?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Yes, as per your history, you may have a dental infection or an ear problem on the same side. You need to upload a picture of your teeth so that I can conclude it. There can also be a dangerous lesion associated which may present as lymphadenopathy of the neck. You feel feverish due to the infection you have. Please provide your drug history to prescribe medication.
