Avatar n tn i have a hard bone-like lump on the right side of my jaw what could it be
Avatar f tn I have just found a lump on my lower jaw, underneath my ear right at the jaw joint. It is approximately the size of half of a grape. It definitely feels attached to my jaw feels like s grape- not too hard or soft. It is slightly uncomfortable when felt. Any ideas of what this might be? I am going to go ahead see an ENT- but I have month and a half before I could get in. Just a little concerned. Thank you for any help!
Avatar f tn My question is, is it easy to distinguish between a tumor on the parotid gland and a lump on the jaw, I guess part of the tempormandibular joint? Or should I get a second opinion? I do have some jaw pain, but my doctor feels it is related to the tmj.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn lump noticed on jaw centrally located between chin and hinge. Pain throbbing and radiating between inner ear, right temple and right jaw.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn Nothing has worked. Also had some joint pain in front of my right ear at the jaw joint...causing bad headaches. Also had a layer of white stuff on my tongue off and on for a month. My ENT looked scoped my throat, and said I had evidence of acid reflux damage to my vocal cords, although I don't remember having acid reflux. Said to give it a week and it should be fine. 3 weeks later, still not well... please help...
Avatar m tn Not painful or sore, with the exception of my left armpit.Today, a week later, I have the pain in every joint, my entire jaw, have a big lump behind my right knee, which is the worst joint pain of them all... I have been having sudden and severe abdominal pain, some diarrhea, shoulder pain, Mussle pain in my back, chest mussle pain, pain on heels, etc. few migranes, nausea, disoriented, choppy or slurred speech at times.. I described it to a friend as ike I am coming out of annestetic.
Avatar f tn Hi i had surgery on my jaw (temporomandbularjoint) over a year ago.. The last few days my scar just in my hair line has got a lump an my husband said its red an its quite delicate to touch.. Should i see my dr or is this normal?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn I am 20 years old. Few months back i found a pea sized lump below my jaw close to my neck, It is pain less. But i feel that area to be a bit swollen. I hav a slight pain in the back part of my neck, sore throught, I can hear a sound on that side of my ear when i drink something. I usually have had head aches on my left side. And also a slight pain in my left year... A pain below my left feet.. connected to the second small finger. and also when i sneeze i have a pain below by right abdomen.
Avatar f tn Woke up with a migraine.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn I felt some immediate discomfort in my jaw joints and by the following morning significant swelling had occurred from my chin along the jaw line (and underneath) up to the joint in front of my right ear. Using my fingers to trace the pain I discovered a decent sized lump had formed in the musculature along my jaw right about center point (the masseter muscle I believe).
1100156 tn?1323923521 So....tired....all the time. Even when I'm in a great mood, I'm exhausted. I uses to sleep about 8 hours before I woke up naturally. I used to wake up at about 8 on weekends, 6 on weekdays. Now I can't wake up till 11 in weekends and I always feel sick and tired. Everything requires huge amounts of energy. And I get out of breath super easy, which is weird for me since i was always in pretty good shape.
Avatar n tn my friend awoke at 2 am and felt a lump at his jaw line below the ear. On discovery it felt sore when touched, by that evening all tenderness was gone and the lump was as big as a silver dollar. I palpaped it. It was hard and attached on the back side.
Avatar n tn I have a pain directly under my ear ~ beside my jaw bone?? I have had it for 3 days.
Avatar f tn After about 1/2 hours of practice time by right jaw joint really starts to ache and the ear too. Family doc suggested TMJ so subscribed antibotics (incase i had an infection brewing) and NASAIDs to fight back any possible inflammation... but when I call my dentist (who typically is the one to see about TMJ) he about had a hermorrage. "Go back to your ENT!.
