I have this bean sized lump under my jaw. I get this occasionally... Maybe 1-3 times a month... It is sensitive to touch but it doesn't cause pain too bad. Can you tell me what it is and why I get it? I am 13 but i've been having this problem since I was around or 7.

I had about 3 months ago ringworm on my mech which was a itchy viral thing. At the same time I developed a lump bigger than 1cm that moves when I touch it under my jaw near my Adams apple I also have another one except smaller than 1cm about 2cm away from it which moves. The ring worm went about two months ago however the lumps are still there same size. I do have spots and quite a lot of them which my GP thinks are the cause however I have read this could be cancer. I have no symptoms such as fatigue or itchiness etc however shouldn t these lumps have gone by now?

HI, I HAVE HAD A SMALL WORRY GO ON FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW. TO START EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE I HAVE HAD A FEW SMALL STIFF, BALLS , IF YOU WOULD, MAYBE THE SIZE OF A PEA, ONE IN MY JAW, CHEEK, NECK, AND BEHIND MY EAR (COMMON PLACES OF LYMPH NODES). THEY HAVE BEEN STIFF AND PAINLESS FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, SINCE I WAS PROBABLY 14, I AM NOW 24. AS OF LATELY (3-5 WEEKS) I HAVE HAD CLOGGED EARS, SMALL PAIN IN MY JAW, AND UNDER MY JAW (WHERE MY LYMPHNODES ARE). I HAVE GOOGLED THINGS AND ALL THAT DOES IS STRESS ME OUT. AS FOR LYMPH NODES IN MY ARMPIT OR GROIN I REALLY CANT EVEN FEEL ANY, SO NO PAIN OR ANYTHING WEIRD OR OUT OF PLACE THERE. NO NIGHT SWEATS OR WEAKNESS EITHER. I WAS JUST CURIOUS IF THIS IS SOMETHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT OR AM I STRESSING OVER NOTHING? ANY ADVICE WOULD BE HELPFUL! IF I SCHEDULE A DOCTORS APPOINTMENT WOULD A EAR NOSE AND THROAT DR BE APPROPRIATE? THANK YOU VERY MUCH

i am a 32 year old female. For the last 6 months or so i have noticed small (pea sized) movable nontender lumps on each side of my collar bone. They seem to move around when pressed. For 2 days now i ve had lumps under my jaw line that are movable, about the size of a cherry, nontender, and i can only feel them when i tilt my chin down towards my chest. I m really freaking out because I ve googled alot and came up with cancer and HIV!! I don t have any flu-like symptoms, no diarrhea, no night sweats, no rash, etc. Can you shed any light on this?
