    3 Canker Sores within 2 Months, along with one swollen lymph node?

    Hello, I am 16 years old and recently (since about July 4, and it is now August 23) I have been having canker sores much more frequently than usual. Typically I would get one just a couple times a year. Also, the lymph node on the left side of my neck has been swollen and quite painful to the touch since around the time the canker sores began happening and seems to get even worse when I do have a sore in my mouth. Each new sore seems to be getting larger than the one before as well.

    Can anyone tell me why the sores are coming on more frequently, and if they have a correlation with the discomfort in the node? Should I make an appointment to see my PCP?
