Hi Tymara,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
The lump below your chin can be inflamed submental lymph node secondary to infection in the oral cavity. You need to consult your doctor and start on antibiotics and some anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen/diclofenac.
Good Luck

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Hi, i am quite worried about this. I have found a lump.. it is on the left side of my face but it is weird!? I noticed it the other day when i had my head down reading a book. I had a really sore as if grinding pain on my jaw. I lifted my head up and then put it down again, (as though making myself have a double chin ) i felt the right side of my face and at the bottom of my jaw is a lump. It is in between my chin and ear and can move around. It disappears when i lift my head up? I ve tried feeling it too attempt seeing where it goes but it just disappears under my face? I am going to see my doctor tomorrow but i need a decent night sleep and this is just scaring me? Hope you can help. Thankyou

I have a lump under my jaw bone next to my chin. I thought it was a sore pimple at first but now it has gotten bigger and feels round. I have only have had it for a few days but it concerns me. I do chew tobacco sometimes but i have never had any sorts of problems. Even my dentist has said my mouth looks pretty good other than a few cavities I have. What could it be? or What should I do?

Good morning, Recently in the last few weeks I have noticed some changes in myself. All alone all don t seem to alarming, but when I put them all together it causes some concern. Started with awful neck pain, almost seemed like I pulled a musscel, but about a week later I was always tired and exhausted. Then I noticed 3 lumps on my neck, (one towards the back of my jaw, one just under and a little to the back of my ear and the other below my hair line). A few days after that my lower back was sore so I was getting a massage and they noticed something in my back, felt like someone put a bouncy ball in my back. I don t feel sick other then being tired and my voice is a bit more raspy. Is this something I should get checked out? or should I contiue to keep an eye on it? I just don t know what it could be.

Pl. suggest a better medicine.
