i recently had submandibular lymph node and the gland both removed ,now there is collection of fluid about 5.8 cc in the submandibular area , the fluid is yellowish in colour , it was aspirated three times in 12 days , the fluid again fills after aspiration .
my surgeon(surgical oncologist) tells me its okay it will will subside over time .
but my ent surgeon tells me that there might be some part of submandibular gland left which is giving saliva and hence the fluid collection .
guys what colour is the saliva secreted by the submandibular gland ?
is the condition a seroma ?
the yellow colour liquid lymph or saliva ?
