You are probibly fine. I went to the doctor recently for swolen lymph nodes, and my doctor said that the lymphnodes swell if there is a little thing like and irritated pimple. I thnk you are fine, it is probibly all the fluid trying to drain out.

A bite can easily cause your lymph nodes to swell. Honestly, thousands of things can cause your nodes to swell, even things like stress and anxiety.

Dont be overly concerned unless the lumps persists and continues to get bigger.

you probably have an infection due to biting your cheek,you introduced bacteria into your bloodstream by biting,you should go to a doctor as soon as possible,so he can give you some anti biotics

What a coincidence! I'm going through the same thing. I've had swollen lymph nodes in the exact same area for a week now. However, I have insurance so I went to the doctor. So I can tell you what they told me: Swollen lymph nodes can be anything from a pimple or a common cold to cancer or AIDS. Swollen lymph nodes are a sign that your body is fighting something. But they said it is most likely nothing at all and the more serious illnesses are much more rare. They sent me to have an ultrasound of the swollen area. They were able to tell from that there was no tumour present and they also checked my thyroid and were able to tell that there was nothing wrong with that. They also said that the most common reason for swollen lymph nodes in the area you are describing is an ear or throat infection or a dental cavity. Have you been to a dentist in the past few months? Because that could be a very likely cause. Since the ultrasound showed nothing they sent me for blood tests. They checked my red and white blood cell count and I don't know what else but said that was normal too. So I hope that gives you an idea of what the doctor might do if you were able to see one. I know that it is frustrating paying for a doctor when it turns out you have nothing. It is most likely that the nodes have swollen because of the bite and it is nothing at all. But derfinately keep close attention to your teeth, ears, throat for signs of infection and if the swelling doesn't go down soon or gets worse you are going to have to foot the bill for a doctor just in case you are one of the rare ones that has something serious. Best of luck and please post an update to tell us if it just goes away or if you have something else.
