    I think glands can get bigger.
    In glandular fever I think they swell or it might be mumps...either way they swell.
    If it isn't cleared up by the time the antibotics have run out they should go back to the doctor. (thats what I would do)

    sometimes the lump can be bumpy. When you feel it bits are higher than others and bits are smaller. i would suggest get it sorted coz if it is in your gland it could be very serious.

    my sister had the same thing a few months after me and she was prescribed antibiotics - i however managed to 'survive' without any
    it was just about possible to move them around, but they got quite large and since attached to the gland meant that they were fairly secure.

    What u described sounds like mumps. I also had them when i was a kid and they are highly virul. thats y ur sister got them after u. Thats not much to worry about unless they get really big and if that happens it becomes difficult even to swallow food. I am not a doctor but alio's hypothetical person also seems to have the same thing. And they also grow pretty quickly. Alio stay away from her until she gets cured or u might have those too. Unless u had them already. Its like chicken pox. :eek:
