The problem is, before one week i got a hard lump on my right jaw bone near my chin.Also am having ear pain on the same side of the lump.The lump is painful only when touched.Is this a symptom of cancer?
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.

I had a root canal and several weeks later noticed a pea-sized hard lump on my lower jaw bone, directly down from the root canal. The dentist who put my crown on after the root canal, said that the lump had nothing to do with the root canal, and that I probably always had this lump. Does this sound reasonable?
I first thought something was stuck in between my teeth. I got to probing with my finger this morning up underneath my jaw bone. I feel a gland i think that is really sore. Is this an infected gland or shouldn't there be any little marble like structures in that area???

Hello, I am a 42 year old female and about 2 weeks ago I noticed a tender spot under my lower jaw bone. It became increasingly tender and then I noticed a lump on the bone under the lower jaw and it is hurting more and more. It seems to be growing as well. Now when I look in the mirror it looks like that area is swollen but if you touch you can feel the hard lump on the jaw bone. It doesn't move around and it has become so painful it hurts if I yawn or clear my throat.

I have a hard lump (teeth hard) growing out of my bottom jaw. It's located on the outer side of my lower right side jaw below and between my two back molar teeth. It's pea sized and grew from barely noticeable to full size in 2 days. It doesn't move around freely and feels like it's attached to my jaw bone. I had my wisdom tooth removed from that location about a year ago because it impacted my other tooth. I've read a little about tori but I'm not really sure at this point.
I've noticed it all day, there is a slight lump on the right side under my jaw. It is moveable, and isn't excruciating just yet. When I apply pressure, or face my head downwards, it gets very sore. I am very curious to know if this is heard of commonly or not, and if it is a serious problem. Thank you!
It is significantly larger than my left side. I also developed a lump between my ear and jaw. (same side) It is not something that is easily felt from the outside by others. However, I can feel it and move it around. It hurts to do so though. After six months of on and off again low grade fevers of 99-100 degrees (my normal temp is 97.8 - 98) I went to a walk in clinic. The doctor ran a blood test on me and determined that my blood work was fine. they thought I was okay.
Hi Lump on the side of the jaw could be a swollen lymph node, an abscess, a bone swelling or a parotid gland swelling. Generally vaginal discharge (I think by discharge you mean vaginal discharge) is accompanied by lymph node swellings in the groin. I do not think your jaw swelling and discharge are related. The only rare possibility is a STD. This can be ruled out by a STD panel. However, I think you should discuss this with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
I took my son to the doctor today because earlier this week he noticed a larger than pea sized lump above his jaw on the right, a couple of inches from his chin. He doesn't really complain about it hurting unless it's touched. His doctor is sending us to a ENT on wednesday, and I am absolutely terrified. His doctor has no clue what it could be. He just kept saying it was strange. It doesn't move much, but it does a little but feels like its attached to the tissue that connects to his jaw.
what kind of cyst can cause to remove jaw bone, you have to replace that bone with leg or back bone. why you have to remove jaw bone? on my jaw left side i have cyst. we can not see but it looks like lump. catscan says its soft tissue. then why we cannot remove only cyst, but have to remove jaw bone? please reply. thank you.
18 y/o female, smoker, 5'9, 157 lbs Okay, so about 5 months ago i noticed a kidney bean sized lump under the inside my jaw (that could only be felt when i looked down and it moved to the other side of my jaw bone (the cheek side)). I thought nothing of it because it wasnt a 'characteristic' cancerous lump, as it is smooth, rubbery and movable. It is located directly under my 2nd molar, in that general area..
