Do I have TMJ?

My chin is slightly deviated to the left side and there is some kind of a lump or swollen muscle on the right side of my jaw just below the temple. It doesn't hurts or pops or anything. I don't think I had an accident or anything that could cause it.

I didn't even noticed this until my friend told me that I have a crooked jaw, but now it really bothers me every time I have to go out in public. So, do I have TMJ? and, what kind of treatment will I need to get rid of this problem?

Thanks.

Re: Do I have TMJ?

Lol my friend I'm in the exact position you are in. I went to a tmj doc and he said my bite was good but my muscles that control my jaw were tense. I to have a crooked lower jaw . That bump is most likely a tense muscle, do you have any pain? Clicking/ poping when opening mouth?
