Doctor :   Hi,
User :   I am 22 and have a small lump in the groove caudal to my mandible on the left, halfway up. It does hurt a bit, doesn't seem deep enough for a parotid gland thing (going on veterinary anatomy here) And I can't get hold of it, its hard and like a small pea, with smooth, spherical outline. I'm studying in Budapest so medical advice is hard to come by, in. Your advice is much appreciated. Faye
