Thanks for your query.You have a movable lump in front of your ear on the jaw since last three years which is growing up graduallyThis could be either a benign tumor in Parotid gland(Salivary Gland) or a enlarged pre auricular lymph node.So better consult the surgeon who on clinical examination would be in a position to diagnose it correctly and will decide the surgery which is the only option .
