Lump above jaw bone

Common Questions and Answers about Lump above jaw bone


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn i have a hard lump the size of a marble, situated above my top jaw bone, on the right side, it is painful when pressed, and cannot be moved. you can't see it, any ideas what this could be?
Avatar n tn After an xray this tooth showed to have a cyst to the side of the tooth, which he said was unusual, however, above the tooth next to it was a lump. Dentist said he didn't know what the lump above the other tooth was. He is referring me to Oral spec. but as routine appt (so could be a good 6-8 months wait!). I've got to get the bad tooth refilled and crowned over the next few months, dentist said he would keep an eye on the lumps for me whilst I wait for the appt.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn about a week ago i fund a lump just above the side of my jaw. its painful and its also not visible. since i found the lump i've also noticed that i've been having alot of discharge. is it related? what could it be?
Avatar f tn Hi, went to doc's today about lump on neck just above collar bone and another higher up on other side of neck. Had these for a couple of months and apparently have more smaller lumps that I hadn't noticed. Doc thinks all ok and nothing sinister but feeling a bit worried anyway.
215234 tn?1305146561 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.
Avatar n tn The other issue has also happened a few days ago. I woke up with a bad ache like pain in the right side of my jaw, seems to be under the cheek bone. Again it varies from day to day but it does annoy when I move my mouth and eat. The thing is I was fine then all of a sudden I have these two odd pains in my neck and jaw which I have never had before.
Avatar m tn ) (Please read my above comment too though) When I apply pressure to the larger lump it is slightly moveable, then when I release the pressure the saliva gland located near by, above and behind the lump, squirts saliva out like a shot... This freaked me out a little. lol What the hell is that? *squirts saliva out like a shot* - Like a snake shoots venim...
383138 tn?1314171373 I am concerned if this bone pain I am having could be bone cancer - I have new and increasing bone pain (like sharp constant ache) in my left leg bone (both upper bone and lower bone) and left hip - It started coming and going a couple months ago, but has progressed and now the pain is mostly constant and is getting quite severe, nothing relieves it, and it is worse through night, in morning and certain days are worse than others, but lately there are not many better days with it.
Avatar n tn Without any further description, the EMT put his finger right on the lump and told me I had arthritis of the hyoid bone. He gave me some anti-inflamaty drugs. While I was relieved that the EMT recognized my symptoms, I have occasional doubts that something more serious is going on. It really helps me to have you all reporting the same symptoms and concluding its the hyoid bone. I never had any trauma to the neck.
Avatar f tn I get a build up of wax in my left ear from it being so swollen and the jaw bone connecting to my ear is sore and swollen as well. Im being told by GP it's stress and I am grinding my teeth at night and clenching my jaw. I had a crown put in last year and all these problems have started after that although not sure if there is a connection ....
Avatar f tn I have a small lump near my ear right above my jaw bone. It's not visible. It doesn't hurt but when I press it I can feel it throbbing. I've had this for years and it hasn't effected me. But I'm starting to wonder if it could be something serious.
Avatar n tn I have a prominence of the bone which is below the stomach and above the thighs The bone is outwards (not flat) and is apparent if I wear skirts. Why is it like that and what can be done ? Is this the reason why I get back pain? A. The bone that you are referring to is called pubic bone and this should normally be flat and not prominent. The important causes of this bone coming forward are any swelling inside the bone, deformity of spine or deformity of hip joint.
Avatar n tn i was sitting on the couch yesterday and a small hard knot popped up on my throat under the jaw bone right above the gland, or on it i am not sure because it is so close .it fills like a small pointed knot no larger than a pea .as you may know from my other post i have many health probs portal varices ,lesion on left temporal lobe /epilepsy ,hep c, full hystorectomy,colon surgery ,appendix removed ,mvp,ibs,diverticulitis,gerd,cirrhosis, rhumatoid arth.
Avatar n tn I also just noticed that I now have a lump slightly larger than the one in my neck (on the same side) just under my jaw bone (close to my ear). Given that this is the beginning of the Flu season, could this just be the onset of a cold or the flu?
Avatar n tn I have a painful lump about the size of which is both moveable and hard, located right below my right earlobe just above the jaw where it curves to meet the ear. Though the lump is hard sometimes I swear the area around it is squishy. I've have a low white blood cell count, itching, nech aches esp. that area and below that are on my neck. Sometimes my chest hurts but I don't know if it's related to this. I'm really not sure what could be related to this. I've seen a Doc.
Avatar n tn I have had a painless lump in my neck for several years. It is on the left side in the same area where my lymph nodes typically swell up when I have a cold. It is behind the upper part of my jaw, below my ear. It is hard, painless (unless I press it rather hard), immovable and about an inch in size. I have had two doctors who have been aware of it, but dismissed it. The first one put me on antibiotics to make it go down, but they did not do anything.
Avatar n tn Hello my problem is little long almost 8 months I felt a little lump in my gum above of a molar with a previous root canal ...I visited several dentist but anyone made nothing...the lump was increased in size, had pain, redness and another signs of inflammation.....I decided beginning antibiotic and went with another dentist ....finally this Dr. made x-ray and saw a huge mass(aprox. 2cm) that affected jaw bone ....
Avatar n tn I then began to experience slight jaw pain in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew. Internist xrayed my jaw to rule out TMJ, and that came back negative. He has no other suggestions. I went for about 1 1/2 weeks until this past Monday, with no feeling of fullness or anything. The slight jaw pain was still present. On Monday, it begun to feel not normal again. I don't necessarily have ear fullness, but the area behind my ears near the jaw feels odd inside.
Avatar n tn While massage my left skull, I have noticed the lump located exactly on the left-side on the bone above my left-ear, as I pressed on it, the area seemed to trigger a point that made my migrane even painful, then noticed that it travels to my left eye and beleive it or not even my left sinus area. Ready to call the hospital for an appointment... Any suggestions on what to do in the meantime or anyone would know what this could be?
Avatar n tn I have something similar to Egatch. I also have a lump around my cheek bone. Mine is above the cheek bone, and close to my ear aswell. It's also not visible. However the lump I have doesn't hurt at all when I feel it or press down on it, and it seems to be movable. I know it has not been there for long time (developed between Oct.2008 -July 2009). I checked to see if it was on the right side aswell, and it wasn't. The side with the lump feels noticeably different than the other side.
Avatar n tn Not I realized I have a hard lump way up in my jaw bone above where to the tooth is, and it is somewhat sore and painful. I know I need to go to the dentist, but I am planning my wedding this month and for expense reasons I cant go. It feels swollen, and I have no clue as to what it is.
Avatar f tn Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
Avatar n tn For the past 3 weeks my jaw pain has gotten worse and more consistent. Along lower jaw, sometimes radiates up jaw. Bi-lateral, and the muscle between my jaw bones in my neck also tightens up. This many times comes with shooting pains in my arms, more left than right but both. Mainly shooting, sometimes an ache and on rare occasion the whole left arm aches for a while. I've woken up with tingling in my fingers also.
Avatar n tn , which is it, soft like cartiledge, or hard like bone? Bone feels like rock. Feel your wrist bone - does it feel like that? Or does it feel like cartiledege - like the tip of your nose? I have a lipoma on my skull that has been there 48 years. Feels like cartiledge. It's totally harmless. Best wishes.
