Lump under chin muscle

Common Questions and Answers about Lump under chin muscle


1830304 tn?1317887383 Hey i am an 18 year old male. I have had a small round lump under my chin ( not near my Adam's apple...It's more towards the underside the tongue) for more than a year. Like most men i am hesitant to see a doctor about it, and just brush it off. But it's been there for so long now that i am starting to get really worried about it. When i first found it it seemed like an inflammation because it got pretty big for a while, but then shrunk in size and has remained that way since.
Avatar n tn I recently felt what feels like a lump under my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar f tn it more feels like a burning sensation when i touch it. my chin is extremely numb..the numbest part is right under my bottom lip on my chin in one patch. this ***** so bad. im taking vitamin b6 pills crushed up and also cant eat real solid foodds bc of the tongue issue. this is seriously depressing. your improvement gives me hope! maybe i should try the vitamin b liquid too? lol im taking pills..but i dunno what the difference would be. i havent found anyone who has my symptoms around here..
Avatar f tn 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....
Avatar n tn There is a kind of swelling under my chin, towards the top of my throat that came back today after taking a 2 week hiatus. I'm not sure if it's swollen lymph nodes due to some kind of infection, but the swelling is noticeable. When I tilt my head back, it feels almost like the muscle at the top of my throat is being stretched tight, and when I press on the swollen area, there is a bit of pain. What could this be?
Avatar m tn The lower end of the object actually continues under one of my neck muscles, if I try, I can feel it continue under the muscle. The upper end goes up into my lower mouth, under my tongue. Pictures found in anatomy books and on Wikipedia show that the "Facial vein" is very similar to what I am feeling in my neck. Why it is hard, I do not know; probably because I've been messing with it for a while.
Avatar n tn No pain in eating/swallowing etc, and no outward visibility inside mouth or on chin. It is right next to my jawbone under the molars on the left side. Thanks!
Avatar n tn my doctor told me that its not serious, it will go down on its own, and actually found another small one under my chin and said it was teh same thing (i didnt' even notice that one). he said that if i get more or they get bigger, or get a fever, chills, or headaches, to get it checked again, but most likely it will heal on its own, i could get a permanent bump but its not a big deal. i hope this helps.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar n tn This lump is not so hard, but like a cartilage under his skin. In the beginning his paedia thought it may just be a dermoid cyst but the second doctor thought the location was a bit higher than where you normally find dermoid cysts (justat the tip of the eyebrow closer to the ear). So we consulted a Paediatric Neurosurgeon last Saturday. He thinks its nothing more than a benign cyst as it has not gotten any bigger than when we first noticed it.
Avatar m tn About 6 weeks ago I had a painful lymph node under my chin (centre) it was accompanied by a cold-sore on my lip so I was not overly concerned and it went down shortly after the sore disappeared. About 2-3 weeks ago however I discovered a very small lump under my left arm pit, it was painless and moveable. I went to my doctor however he was off and was seen by a stand-in who said it was a cyst not a node but agreed to me having more blood work done.
Avatar n tn Well... the muscle that I pulled is located between my collar bone and the bottom of my neck (throat). I pulled the muscle trying to open my mouth to bite a Hot Dog. It's weird because as the day goes on my muscle in my throat becomes weaker which makes it harder to swallow food. I 've had this for around three weeks and it doess't seem to be going away. Not sure what to do, I'll probably go see a doctor.
Avatar m tn The lump is located at the base of the skull, under my hair line, between the left side of spine and the left trapezius muscle (I believe it's the correct muscle). The lump can not be felt if head is facing forward and level. The lump can be felt if head is lowered, with chin to chest. In this position, the lump is nearly the size of a ping pong ball cut in half; but it is more oblong than round. I can always feel it but not as a pain but feels more like a stiff neck.
Avatar f tn Also, can you feel a lump under your chin or down your throat? I know, lots of questions. There are so many things it could be, do you think you can take some benadryl for your doctor allergy (just a little humor). because it may be nothing, but if it is not, the quicker you get a diagnosis, the better.
Avatar n tn went to the doctor who felt the lump and the ridge under my breast and asked me to come back. went back yesterday and the lump was hormone related but i am still very sore in between and below breasts. she has now diagnosed me as having inflammed muscles between my ribs. but i very tired all the time and dealing with a sore back. it's hard not to think it's something more.
Avatar n tn please let me know what they said. i found a pea sized lump under my chin(not around any bones) and it is freaking me out. it does not hurt at all, but i am wondering what it could be.
Avatar n tn I get this extremely bad knot in my left shoulder blade muscle area....between the blade and my spinal chord area... when i stuff envelopes or cook or fish.. it gets excruciatingly bad.. i know its just one of the muscles.. but why is it ONLY the LEFT side all the time and how can i minimize the pain because it gets to where i cant hold my head up sometimes.
Avatar m tn (about decisions and such) *I do not smoke or do drugs. *I have a lump(which my doctor dismissed) 1/4 inch under my chin to my right side by my hyoid bone. Please help me, I'm tired depressed and angry I feel trapped in my own mind and body.
Avatar n tn I have had chronic rhomboid muscle pain on the right side for 10 years, and have seen numerous MD's(MRI with no significant problem found), Chiropractors (Adjustments & pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night.
Avatar n tn It almost feels like my shirt is rubbing against my skin but then it feels like that when I don't have a shirt on. I too sleep with my arm under my pillow, under my head. I have slept that way since I was born. I sometimes do it with my other arm but it's almost always with the arm where I feel the tingling. I've never been in an accident nor have I ever had an epideral. I had mild scoliosis when I was a child but that has long since gone. If anyone hears anything about this from an M.D.
317787 tn?1473362051 My husband has had a benign lump under his ear for a long time. Seems to be an age related thing with him. I know I had some digestive issues post tx, and it was hard not to go over the edge with the 'what ifs' Gratefully those passed.
Avatar m tn ( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up. I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar n tn I had the same problem - red swollen itchy eye which started on the skin just under my left eye as the weeks went on it spread to the eye lid, the bridge on my nose, between my eye brows and to to skin round my other eye. it drove me in sane it was so imbarassing going into work. On the days it wasn't as red it was very dry bumpy and scaly horrible. The attack lasted months and the skin was starting to look wrinkly!
Avatar n tn The soreness and swelling has already subsided, now it just looks like a flattened red lump. She said the cyst will return to normal size and will remain under the skin, so this could happen again. If so, I may need minor surgery to remove it. But overall, nothing serious.
Avatar f tn First of all, about 4 years ago I found a lump under my chin that was painful, so I went to my doctor he did blood work and found my white blood cell count was high so he did more blood work for everything form aids to cancer and couldnt find anythingso he sent me to get a cat scan and ultra sound of under the chin and my thyroid and all that came back with is that my thyroid was slightly emlarged but no problem with it, then i was sent to mouth nose and throat specialist, an allergist an oncoli
Avatar n tn I had to massage the muscle a little to relieve the cramp. Now the muscle under the chin just feels a bit crampy - not right. Also while completely relaxed in bed before falling asleep I'll feel a shaking feeling in my throat, upper chest area. I'm not sure if this is a throat fasiculation, an esophogeal spasm, or if the portion of my tongue that is in my throat is shaking? Sometimes I sound a little hoarse and have to clear my throat.
Avatar n tn I have minor partial lower left lip paralysis( only in one small location right next to the corner of my lower lip on left side) and seroma under my chin. My chin and jaw area were previously nicely contoured and only beginning to show signs of aging particularly when looking down. Now after my surgery to improve my looks I have no jaw line and my angle from chin to neck is about 45 degrees and I have had the seroma drained twice in one week thus far but it immediately fills up again.
