i have had this small mass under my chin and two or three on the back of my neck(mastoid,occipital area) and another on the left side of my upper back(trapezius) these "masses" are right below my skin and most are all the same size about 1/4 of an by 1/4 of an inch. i saw the doctor and he could only feel the mass under my chin...i think these lumps are easily palpable...but on another note he reccomended a biopsy on the lump under my chin he believes it be a lymph node...

Mouth feels better today, still have swelling to back of throat and dryness. Dentist had a look in mouth and said everything looks ok. Checked lump under my chin and thought it could be extra piece of bone growth, or perhaps from a bang when I was a child, but feels best to check it out. I explained that since Monday one of my top teeth had been hurting (3rd tooth along in the mouth, left side). I have had a previous root filling in this tooth.
The pain seems to have spread to my ear and causing ear ache, i am getting really bad headaches and pain in my chin has started too. The lump is located on my neck, to the right side of my chin but a bit further back (like halfway between under my ear and my chin. I went to a walk-in clinic because I couldn't get an appointment at my doctors, and they told me it is probably just a throat infection, but I do not have a sore throat.

I just noticed tonight that my 3 1/2 year old daughter has a pea sized lump on the right side of her neck just under her ear/chin. When i press lightly on it, it moves around a little. It doesn't seem to hurt her, but I've never noticed it before. She also has no cold/shows no signs of illness....Should I take her to the doctor? Does this sound like a swollen lymph node?
Last night I noticed a lump on the back of my neck, on the right side, at the base of my skull. It's about the size of a penny and doesn't seem to be moving around or anything. It isn't real painful, only if I poke at it. I haven't had any visual issues, nor terrible headaches or nausea or anything. I had my family and a couple friends feel it and they all said it feels like a tension knot.
Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. The enumerated the possibilities can be investigated or ruled out one by one by your physician and dentist. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
I posted around a year ago around a lump I had discovered on my neck, over the course of the last year I have had an ultrasound and blood work all of which came back ok and whilst I understand that neither are 100% conclusive these coupled with the fact that it has not grown at all over the last year has given me a degree of comfort and my doctor explained that it is not unusual for nodes to be asymmetrical to their counterpart on the other side of the neck which I cannot feel.

I was dx in June 2013 and Dr oro done surgery Sept 24 2013. It has been a blessing. But now 5 months post op I have a lump, bump, knot, whatever under incision. I went to er and they said soft tissue swelling. (I recently moved to Iowa and haven't found dr here yet.) Now I did pull my left neck muscle the big one from chin to sternum like 1 or 2 months post op idk how just weak I guess. And yeah I think I reinjured it again too bc its flared up and that when swelling started but....
Hello, I discovered a lump in my neck above the thyroid about 5 weeks ago. Thinking it would go away I waited til two weeks ago to tell my doctor about it. She ordered a CT Scan with contrast. I was hesitant to put any more chemicals in my body so did not want to get the contrast. As always, Hector was very helpful; he assured me it would be ok. I had the scan done yesterday and should be getting results this week.
Now it's back and I also relized that I have a small lump close to my saliva gland (right side). It's a small (peas sized) lump and it's softer. My ear and chin (throat up to ear area) sometimes ache and hurt and I cough in different times meaning at no specific time of the day, the cough gets worse. I've visited an ENT specialist and he couldn't find anything. I went to my family doctor and he couldn't find anything.
Otherwise it feels like my lymph nodes are all swollen due to infection and I have a lump over my carotid just under my chin. Never had anything like this all my life (53) and I have really been a go getter the whole time.
All I know for sure is he gave me jowls and a double chin and while the neck bands in the middle are gone now it is worse w neck bands protruding on the outside leading up to the jowl area he created. I swear he gave me a bull frog throat! It has taken nearly 2 years to heal.
Yep--lymph nodes----I just had a infection that dealt with my lymph nodes on the right side lower neck up to the top of my neck with the one behind my ear very very sore---I did not run fever---but I had heaches, and very tired----I did go to the doctor and we talked about mono---but he said it would not affect the nodes in that way---he did put me on some antibiotics----they helped----but I had to go back and then we talked about mumps---all in all everything was fine----I just had a bad infect

Since I was a child, I've had fairly enlarged tonsils, even under my chin. Doctors always said I could have them removed but that it wasn't necessary. My questions: -If I've had this "ball mass" for 1.5+ years, maybe more, and it hasn't brought any concern, should I worry? -can enlarged lymph nodes from previous infections (enlarged tonsils/tonsilitis) stay large for a number of years? - Are cysts in the neck common in teens?
Thank you for the suggestions and information. My miniature schnauzer has had a lump under his chin for almost a year now. I have had it aspirated and it is non cancerous the vet said. I want to help the lymph node go down even more if I can so I am going to try some lymph tonic. Thank you again for doing the research!
mommymia, your sons lump sounds like a swollen lymph node - from an infection. Totally normal, and it will go away in time.
However, it is close to the lump we found on the back of my neck. I don't know how long I had the lump on the back of my neck. It could have been a very long time or something that has developed in the past 1/2 year or so (that's when we found it). The neck pain I have had has been years and I always just thought it was a stiff neck, but, now wonder if it was this "lump" all along.
Hi, I've tonight found images showing the parathyroid gland, having searched for an answer to a recurring & extremely painful face & neck, hence why I am here asking questions The first time this happened I was diagnosed in A&E as a "probable lymph node infection, very rare & it was pressing on the Trigeminal nerve" & given antibiotics & told to take anti inflamitaries, use ice packs etc......
Hi This swollen gland in his throat, would you say that these are the tonsils? Would you be able to see a lump on his neck or are there any swelling or nodes present over the neck, near the ears or at the back of the head? Any pain in swallowing or any snoring at night? Does he wake up to catch his breath at night? What I am thinking here is that the headaches and the swollen glands may be connected. This may be a headache brought about by an infection or inflammation.
