slighty large lump that appears under my chin

This has been going on for a few months now. Whenever I roll my tongue back, there's a slighty large lump that appears under my chin near the adams apple. I've searched the internet so many times but cannot find any cases like mine. I may have chosen the wrong forum topic but if you guys know anything about this. Please tell me. Its really bothering me and its kind of embarrassing. Thanks.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

You didnt specify whether the lump is felt inside the the oral cavity or is felt outside below the chin. The area needs to be examined to determine if its a node that has enlarged or if its a cyst. Treatment would depend upon the cause. Cervical nodes and oral cavity should be examined thoroughly to look for any pathology especially in the vicinity of the draining nodes.

Wishing you best of health
