No, eating Altoids can not cause a swollen gland. Glands only swell when there is an infection present in the body. A doctor will be able to tell you the cause.

What is blocked prostate?

The prostate gland may become swollen/enlarged, thus restricting the flow of urine. That can cause the blockage. A catheter can be used to allow urine to escape if needed. From what I gather, chronic infection of the prostate, also called prostatitis may cause calcification in the gland and wherever the infection has spread. This can be a complicated situation. And you should be handled by a physician.
