Hi,

i have found a small lump on the right hand side of my jaw line. It is under the skin so it cannot be seen and it came on very suddenly. I have had it before a couple of years ago but it went away. It is not fixed to anything and I can move it about a little. It does hurt and doesn't seem to be getting any bigger but it also is not going away.

It is only on my right hand side and is quite hard (i cannot squeeze it). I have been suffered from a cold recently and my job is very stressful. Could these be the reasons for it and what is it?
Should I be worried?
Any advise before I go to a doc would be great.
Thanks

paul

I have something similar and was told it is a salvitory stone and to drink lots of water, sour candies and limit salt. If that doesn't help to see an ENT

I''m not sure if this could be the problem but there''s a possibility you could have a swollen lymph node. I have a swollen ball, and it feels like it''s inside or on the line of my jaw. There are some lymph nodes(part of the lymphatic system) located there and throughout your body also next to your ear. They can swell up at times when you are sick or have some sort of virus because it helps fight for your body. I have one on my right jawline, but it''s not really a bother unless I push on it. I hope this helps.

Jawline lump
My wisdom tooth on my left side on the bottom has been hitting the past few days and has been causing my whole left side of my jaw to hurt and throb and when I rub my fingers on my inner jawline I can feel a little lump that is sensitive to the touch. I'm not sure what it is and was hoping someone could tell me. If it doesn't go away should I see a doctor?
