Common Questions and Answers about Lump in jaw infection

lump

First, some context.... In May/June of this past year, I developed a lump on my jaw bone. Thinking that it was a problem with a tooth (maybe an impacted wisdom tooth?) I went to the dentist. At this point the lump was maybe not quite the size of a pea. I went to the dentist and they had no same-day appointments, and that if I was worried about the lump that I should go to the ER.
A lump in the submandibular area (under your jaw line) can be an enlarged lymph node from a previous infection, either a head and neck infection or a respiratory infection. Most of the time, even after the resolution of infection, the enlarged lymph node persist. Other considerations for a lymph node in the head and neck area are lymphomas and metastatic carcinomas. I suggest you consult your doctor for proper evaluation. Good luck.
If an abscess in the teeth goes unattended the infection will spread into the jaw and cause a lump. You need to get checked out ASAP!! If left untreated, the infection will spread into your blood stream.

From your descriptions it seems to me that you're having an infection in that area. It doesn't seem to be cancer, which usually presents in that area as a painless mass. Just see a doctor soon so you can get proper treatment.
I completely understand what you are going through, I had a lump on the bottom of my jaw a few weeks ago that had me worried. It ended up being a lymph node that was a bit swollen, don't worry...you should go to your doctor and have him take a look at it. I'm sure it's just swelling from the infection and the removal of the molar. Hang in there, I'm sure everything is fine. Best of luck!!!
She had a very severe abscess in her jaw (external). When the lump started to appear and cause severe pain in her jaw, the doctors took xrays and said, "Yes, cancer in the left and right mandable... and it looks like the lymph nodes are being affected." Now, the doctors say that cancer is not likely in this area and the infection is severe. They lanced the area, drained and started IV antibiotics. This morning she says that she has a hole in her gum.

Hello, I have found a lump under my mouth, which is right below my gums by my jaw. What can possibly be there that would be a lump? It has me worried....I have an appt for the ENT soon but it is driving me nuts. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!
I do not have a hx of tmj. I was washing my face about four days ago. I noticed a "lump/bump/knot" the size of a marble in what seems to be the jaw hinge/joint area. It did not hurt before I found it. After pushing on it several times it did begin to hurt. (So just dont push on it, right?!) It is about even with my lower earlobe level. I went to a dentist and he felt on it and asked me when did I dislocate my jaw.
