I have a lump on my jaw just below my ear lobe. It doesn't hurt just looks like I have a gland swollen. Does anyone have any suggestions to what this might be??? I have an appointment next week to have a CT scan done but was wanting to maybe find some ideas before I have it done.
on the left side of my face, right next to my ear and directly below my cheekbone on what I think to be my jaw joint, I have a penny sized round lump. It seems to be firm with a slight squishiness to it that alllows me to slightly move it with my finger. It is not painful to the touch, but can feel agitated after rubbing it. It often clicks and is an uncomfortable obstruction to opening or moving my mouth freely.
He fit me for a temporary mouth guard which is very awkward to sleep so I only tried it for 2 nights. Today I saw a new ENT. She said the lump was my jaw joint. She thought it sounded like a muscle or joint issue I was experiencing and suggested a different type of mouth guard. I also had a salivary gland biopsy (most painful thing ever) to rule out Sjogren's. One parotid duct did not seem to be producing any saliva. So I guess I am at the wait and see point.
I've been experiencing it for about two weeks. I feel the jaw joint right below my left ear hurts when I clench my jaw or sneeze (because I clench my jaw), or chew on that side. I have no tooth or gum pain. My ear feels clogged on that side as well. I'm not sure if I should wait and see if it goes away or see a doctor or if there is something I can do to myself.
I've always had what I thought was mild TMJ on the left side of my jaw, ever since I was a young child. It rarely caused pain any more severe than the occasional migrane (blind spots, dizziness, etc), though it would sometimes "pop" and stay locked for quite some time (but never more than a day or two). However, recently I have noticed that it is getting progressively worse at an increasing rate.
The only difference is that I was also seeing some swelling in my right cheek and jaw line. No one else seemed to notice it until I pointed it out. Now it is Sunday morning and I woke to find my cheek and jaw line severely swollen. The tooth doesn't really hurt anymore but now it is the whole lower right side of my face. From under my ear (at the joint) all the way to my chin is tender, tight and swollen. Instead of having a curved jaw line, it's almost completely square on the right side.
Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Last saturday I noticed a smallish lump on my left jaw bone. It felt moveable, no pain. I went to the hospital, and the doctor there said it looked like a tooth absess. So went to the dentist on Monday, and its not an absess. Since then I've been on anti-biotics (4 days), and the lump has gone down, but now my cheek feels mildly swollen...also my jaw does feel bigger on the one side. Got xrays today, and I'm freaking out. They said either tomorrow or Monday...
Hi, Please help! I suddenly had a sharp pain in the joint of my jaw, right under my ear, two weeks ago and my neck and throat were sore. I went to a doctor thinking I had an ear infection. The doctor said my neck had a cold. Since then the pain has increased terribly to my shoulder and back of left side of skull at the base and it is swollen. There is also some numb and tingling in my jaw and ear. Since Friday night I also started having this zapping feeling that is in my left foot.
I have a painful hard lump that has just appeared to the left of my right ear at the side of my cheek bone and upper jaw. it hurts! Any ideas?

Hi,I've recently found a hard pea sizes lump on my cheekbone which is very sore when pressed...I've been to the doctors and had two opinions..one dr said he thinks maybe i should have an xray and the other said give it 3-4 weeks then come back...when they pressed the lump it was very sore and I also felt discomfort in my ear but despite telling the dr this he did not check my ear out. What do you think?
Another cause for the pain you are experiencing could be temporomandibular (TMJ) joint arthritis. This is the jaw joint and inflammation of this joint can cause pain on opening the mouth and tenderness on palpating behind the ear. Check with your doctor to rule out this condition. Lymph nodes which are enlarged greater than one cm are significant. However, you can follow up to see how they are progressing. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
3 hours ago a hard lump about golf ball size appeared under my jaw, left side between chin and ear. Not painful to touch, but slight discomfort swallowing. It seems to go up and down in size.
Hi, This could be due to dislocation or swelling and inflammation at the temporo mandibular joint or the jaw joint. You should try some warm compresses, take some pain relief medications for the pain, antihistamine medications for the swelling and eat soft foods for the next few days. If your symptoms still persist, it would be advisable to consult your doctor. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.
) about anxiety - where it mentioned joint pain. Just the typical fast heartbeat, dizzines, lump in the throat, ect. Anyone with similar symptoms - or just any insight about this please respond! Thanks!
I also have a swollen lump below my jaw in the right side - it may not be a lymph node - it is possible that it is your submandibular salivary gland. Check with your dentist - they know the anatomy of your mouth and jaw area. Typically the submandibular gland will swell without any pain, whereas swollen lymph nodes typically do exhibit pain of some sort.
For the past five days I have had a lump below my ear in the area where the jaw hinge is. It's smaller than a marble, but painful to the touch. It's hard to tell if I can move it or not. Last week I had a bad spell of vertigo which I've never had before. I went to the doctor, but didn't have the lump at the time. The lump is on the same side as the positional vertigo ear. Any ideas what it could be?
The area just before my right ear, where the jaw joint is, is sore to the touch with a slight raised lump. I additionally have a hard sore bump behind the same ear, as well as feel as if my gland is slightly swollen and sore. I have had headaches consistently, as well as an area on the right side of my scalp that feels sore to the touch,. with what looks like a slight rash.

~About 5 days after the chest pain started I got this feeling like I had a lump in my throat. They said it was from anxiety. But it would come and go through out the day no matter what if I was anxious or not. ~About a week after the chest pain a muscle on the back of my left shoulder started twitching NON STOP. Even in the middle of the night I would wake up and it would still be twitching. That went on for 3 weeks straight! Then it stopped.
No pain or change in size for at least 20 years. I found it years ago when massaging a sore jaw joint. It sort of feels like it's in a tendon and in front of the Tragus. I have TMJ, use a night guard and actually broke 2 teeth loose from the bone about 6 years ago when I fell asleep during the Superbowl and wasn't wearing my mouthguard.
One thing to bear in mind - I had (actually still have) a pea-sized lump on my jaw and had it checked out last year. My doctor said as a rule of thumb, if the lump is soft and can be moved around, it is generally harmless, but if it is hard, it needs evaluation. So it's a good idea to have it looked at as soon as you can.
