Painful lump under the skin on the hinge of jaw, another one behind it. What could it be?

About a week ago I found a hard pea sized lump under the skin on the hinge of my jaw under my right ear. It s painful to the touch and when it s not touched I feel pressure. A couple of days ago I checked on it and there was another one behind it but a bit lower and smalled. Now that I think of it, I remember having it in the same place a few years ago, but only the one. Do you have any idea what it could be? I m very worried about it.

Hi, Stephcanflyy,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you have got enlarged lymph nodes below the ear.
this suggests that you might be having some infection in near by area i.e. in the ear,throat,neck etc.
Consult your doctor and find out the source of infection and go for the treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
