Question: Hello my name is Stacy, last night I was feeling around on my neck and I found a lump below the earlobe under my jaw. I’m really scared. I think I’ve had it for awhile. Please help me. I can’t sleep. I’m so worried it might be cancerous

Can you send pictures?

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

I have a few questions for you:

Is the lump tender?
How big is it (compared to a dime, etc)?
Is it moveable?
Is it hard or soft?
Have you had a recent cold or allergies?
Can you upload a few pictures of it (use the upload reports button). This will help me better assist you.
