Lumps close to jaw line, lump in ribs. Are they lymph nodes?

Hi, I have these weird lumps very close to my jaw line on both the left and right. I also have a weird lump on my ribs that feels and moves the same as the lumps near my jaw line. I have 1 big one and one small one on one side and 1 big one on the other(jaw line area) and the other one is on my right rib cage (it s big). Are they lymph nodes? Should I be scared of diseases?

Hi, thank you for writing to Healthcare Magic.
From your presentation, I think those lumps are swollen lymph nodes. You need undergo a thorough clinical assessment and may be some lab investigations to determine the cause. In my opinion, I would suggest you consult a GP for proper assessment and management.
I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us.
I wish you good health.
