| | Painful lump on jaw line
A few years back my jaw swelled up really huge!. I went to a dental college to have it looked at, they thought it was an abscess and tried to drain it but it didnt work. The lump was huge and very hard. They gave me penicillin and it went down slowly. Every now and then my jaw gets sore and a lump grows underneath my jaw towards the back of it. It hurts to look down, to turn my head in the direction of the lump, and painful to the touch. It is located right under my jaw on my jawline. If it helps any, I also have a broken root canal in that area. Can anyone please tell me what is going on?? This has been reoccurring for years. Im getting scared.
