Hello all!

I have had a swollen cheek for over 13 months. While it does not hurt, I do worry about what is causing it! The first time anyone noticed, I was at a walk-in clinic because my throat hurt. Little did I know that a sore throat would soon become part of my life!

After repeated bouts of strep throat (one was so bad that I ended up in the hospital, and then with a home-care nurse for a week) and tonsillitis, I had my tonsils and adenoids removed. I had my tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy Dec. 9th, 2008.

Unfortunately, having my tonsils and adenoids did not change the swollen cheek situation, although I have only had strep once since then - hurrah! I have visited my ENT, had a CT scan (nothing abnormal), and visited my dentist, where I had a full dental scan (again, nothing abnormal). My cheek is swollen enough that some people notice (a walk-in doctor, co-workers, etc.), but still not swollen enough that everyone notices.

Please help.

Please help.My Friend, Unfortunately the modern medical system forgets the fundemental teachings of Hippocrates and Andrew Taylor Still. You had lymphatic fluid back up in the cheeeks and was trying to exit thru the secretion glands. If you milk your face as advocated by Andrew Still and Late Dr. Robert c. Bright, your problem could have been solved. You had operations done unnecessarily. Read my other posts.
