swollen glands under mandible after bone graft

I had an infection in my upper left gum. I had bridge pulled and one tooth. Two implants with bone graft x 2 as one implant failed. I have swollen glands under the mandible that have been biopsied,. No cancer but not consistent with lymph node material. What do you think

Wow, this is too little information to draw conclusion. It is very rare to biopsy lymph nodes. Whatever made them do it? Suspicion of cancer?

To know what is going on, you might have a blood count done to see if white cells are elevated. You could have an infection around the implant.

Thank you for your reply. I had blood work done and it was Normal. I had the implants taken out and the bone cleaned. I was given antibiotics again. The glands are still swollen and have been biopsies. No lymphoma found. The left gland is not consistent with lymph gland. Other than the biopsy and blood work no one knows what to do. I am fatigued, body hurts all the time. Any info will be appreciated.
