As you have felt, it should be exactly that! A stone in the submandibular gland duct. Earlier a gland excision used to be performed for this. However now a days we are successfully removing all stones from the duct using Sialendoscopy. This is a procedure by which a mini endoscope is used to remove stones using baskets. Kindly schedule an appointment with your nearest ent surgeon who is well conversant with this technique so that your gland can be saved
