I have had a swollen lymphnode on my neck right under my jaw for months now. It has not gotten smaller and is not painful. I also have a lot of irritation in my right ear(same side as swollen lymphnode. Now over the past week I have been having this weird awful taste when I swallow or eat. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Get an otorhinolaryngologist, it looks like throat and ear with eustachian tube are involved like infected and easily manageable.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
