Dear members of the Wrong Diagnosis Forums,
I have been really concerned about a small lump that I recently noticed thats is on the left side of my face on the jawline. I cannot see the lump when looking in a mirror, but I can feel it with the tips of my fingers under the skin. The lump is farely small (less than 1 cm) and is very close to the vein but does not feel as if it is on the vein. I first started noticing this lump when I had an outbreak of a couple of canker sores in my mouth. It started hurting a bit the first day the canker sores appeared but the pain went away quickly. Now, the canker sores are gone, but the small lump on my jawline is still there, and I am very concerned for what it may be, and I pray to God that it is not cancer. Please, any comments would be appreciative. =)

  • Hi,I have a small lump too on my jaw line, I've had it for years and it swells up and goes down, sometimes when it swells it hurts. I read elsewhere online that its a lymphnode and unless it becomes red and grows rapidly outside of the usual times it swells (mine is during or after illness) and it can no longer be moved then it is not cancer, but if you are really concerned go to the drs :D, mine tends to take longer to go down because it annoys me and i cant stop touching it to see if it has gone yet :D
