I have had this lump in the right side of my neck that goes away for a few days here and there, but I can usually feel it. It sits about an inch under my ear lobe, right beside my jaw.
I have never had any pain associated with it, but the past couple of days it has become very painful to the touch.
I've had it for such a long time but the fact that it is now sore is concerning me... Is the lump itself a normal thing, and maybe it got aggravated somehow? I don't think this is the case, but I guess it's possible.
I don't want to run to the doctor if it's nothing!
