Do your inner lip salivary glands stick out?
I know that to diagnose sjogren's, they sometimes do an inner lip biopsy of the salivary glands, but do those glands appear to be different, like swollen or stick out, or is the difference only seen in a biopsy?
I have had many strange symptoms for 5 years, and just recently my dentist told me I had swollen salivary glands, and I am seeing a rheumatologist next week to hopefully put all my stange symptoms together and get a diagnosis. I have noticed the bumps sticking out on the inside of my lip, but didn't know if that is a sign of sjogren's.
Can you see the problem on the inner lip or is it only detected thru biopsy?
