A bump in front of her ear on her upper cheek bone

My wife has noticed a bump in front of her ear on her upper cheek bone . It is roughly the size of a m&m and she can move it a little bit. She has been having headaches since she noticed it. She was in a car a car accident about 5yrs ago and received a large laceration on or temple from the accident. She is concerned about this and wondering what it might be.

I have a lump hard like a bone or tissue and it moves its right in front if my right ear and its aligned with my cheekbone just a cm above my tmj . I do have tmj symptoms such as when I m stressed and I clean I clench my jaw and its hard for me to open my mouth after that or sometimes it will pop really loud and sometimes I will be eating and I will hear crackling kind of like a sand grinding sound in my ears. My doctor looked at it and said there is nothing to worry about its just a part of me. But I m wondering if it has anything to do with tmj disorder I recently had prenatel blood tests done 2 months ago because I am pregnant and they found nothing wrong everything came back normal I m just worried should I get a second get a second opinion should I be worried about it maybe its scar tissue??

over the last 2 days I have had a constant steady pain on the right side of head/face, not throbbing or pulsing, just a dull steady pain.. from the ear along the upper cheek bone was severe pain, like I had been hit with something across my face, and at random, could be once every 30 min. to a couple of hrs. I would have a sharp piercing pain from where the upper and lower jaw bone meet, across my head.. would last maybe a second or less, but it would almost bring me to my knees... only thing that I could think that it would might feel like is maybe an ice pick from one side to the other and gone.. very direct and sharp... my balance would be a little off, and at times felt like I was almost scatterbrained.. any ideas as to what I might have been experiencing? its now the 3rd day, this morning was a little pain but has tapered off a great deal..

My 10 year old son recently got hit on the cheekbone by a baseball that another 10 year old threw. He had a black eye for about a week (his eye never swelled all the way shut) he now has a hard lump on the edge of the cheek bone, he says it doesn t hurt and his vision is fine. Should I be concerned? And what is it? What can I do to help it go away?
