Common Questions and Answers about Lump above mandible


317787 tn?1473362051 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.

Avatar m tn I only had about 3 inches on my 12 inch ratchet to use on this stubborn bolt, with all my might and grease that would be present my hand slipped away from the ratchet and my inside pinky slammed against a bracket above my hand. The exact location of the injury would be the middle pinkie joint that is right along side the ring finger. This happened two months ago, I haven't been to the hospital yet because this is a common injury in the trade.
Avatar f tn , Doc called in Amox TRK CLV 875-125 mid July pretty severe allegic reaction so only took one pill and about 3 days later no pain. Oct. 9 feel lump, go to Doc for lump directly under chin/hard as a rock and ask her to look at my right ear as it just doesn't feel right/no pain, just not normal, dead tired and have lost over 25lbs which I assumed was just a stress diet as, amost lost hubby mid June *he was in hosp for 5 weeks.
594787 tn?1219199892 I made an appointment with the doctor, but after several self-adjustments, ice/heat treatments, and rest, my hip got better before the appointment. A few days before I went, I noticed a kidney-bean shaped lump in my right jaw, the best way to describe its position would be on the muscle furthest from my jaw and closest to my chin, where it connects to the lower mandible.
Avatar n tn I had another emg and seen ent about lump in throat. All say I am fine and now..... 3 days ago my tongue started feeling heavy. It is like it is tired.

Avatar n tn I have had a swallowing pain for the last few months and there is also a small lump on the front of my neck just under the skin. the lump has been there for several months and the ENT i saw said it was probably just a lymph node. I had a CT scan done with contrast and it didn't show anything. I don't have any difficulty swallowing and actually don't have any pain when swallowing food its usually when i swallow with a dry mouth or just swallowing saliva.
149081 tn?1242401432 You might be experiencing subacute thyroiditis which present as pain in the neck, sometimes radiating to the ear. Soreness in the neck may extend to the angle of the mandible or toward the ear lobes on one or both sides of the neck. However, partial deafness may be seen, due to increased mucopolysaccharides in the middle ear. Nasal obstruction and discharge for the same reason. Husky voice due to infiltration, but not paralysis of vocal cords.
Avatar n tn When the lump came back, everynight when she was sleeping with me I began massaging the lump. The lump reduced in size to a marble and is not showing through the skin. I have no idea whether this is just pure luck but I took her to the vet who was as surprised as I was as this is quite an aggressive cancer. She is very happy,eating well and not on a special diet other than a supplement of mouse or bird when she can catch one !!
Avatar n tn Read the thread above, I am wondering if this is my problem as I had similar dental work done in May Have had Chronic Hives since, I didnt know if it was the Penicillin or the Numbing agent they used or the Trauma,it was horriby painful and went wrong,I will put this into my search engine ,can you message me anything more you have found out.
Avatar n tn About six months ago my left neck began to hurt and I noticed what I thought was a lump there. I went to a head and neck specialist and he said that I had inflammtion of my Carotid artery(Carotidynia). The lump, I guess, was just the bifurcation of my artery that was swollen. The doctor told me to take an anti-inflammatory(ibuprophen) for 2 weeks. The pain finally diminished, but about a month later it started in my right neck.
Avatar f tn The chronic tonsillitis? Sarcoidosis has also been thought for me a couple of years ago, because I have had ACE and lysozyme above normal. I have an 9 mm tumor in my lung. It has not grown within a few last years, so it is left there. It is not in a site typical of sarcoidosis. Taken from somewhere: Cervical node calcification is rare.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn History of my problem: For as long as I can remember, I have had a problem with my hyoid bone popping out and causing excrutiating pain. It is always the same - the right side of my neck. At about the age of 8 I talked to my pediatrician about it and he promptly told me it was not possible. That I was having anything "pop out" in my neck. He contended that there wasn't anything there that could pop out. So I just continued to push it back into place whenever it popped out.
Avatar n tn for any fluid/infection in the sinuses or mastoid cells. 99.9% of us have eustachian tubes in back of throat above the palate, directly behind the nose where it connects to middle ear. Reason why nose sprays are used to open & pop ear. They aren't located behind your ears. You may have a problem w/ what they call mastoid air cells that can get inflammed or infection. If tender or swollen tissue behind ear, go back to ENT. May need antibiotics.
Avatar n tn After they removed my tonsils the previous December, I still got food stuck in my throat a couple months later and I still felt the huge lump in my throat... hence the diagnosis of Eagles in March. I figured since it was so difficult to find a doctor and treatment was hard to find I'd deal with it until the symptoms became so bad which was this past year. I've had debilitating ear pain and neck pain. Severe headaches that trigger migraines. And I have been constantly clearing my throat.
Avatar n tn in an mra, a intrinsic scan ,detailed, is taken of your artery and the fill of blood in the vessel, if any mentioned above would be the culprit, it would appear. the mri scan looks at the brain in detail, csf,sulcus, deviation any masses,changes,edema,fluid, old vs new cva, its amazingly detailed. if you had a mass,bleed, a developing aneurysm it would have picked it up. so iwouldnt worry about that.
Avatar f tn A cone beam ct scan revealed an inflammatory process in the sinus above the implant and apical periodontal inflammation on the tooth behind the implant which was also giving me night fevers. I have since had the root canal retreated on the tooth that was being blamed for my mouth discomfort.
