Lump under Jaw

I have a lump in the soft tissue of my jaw half way between chin and ear. I have been to my G.P. She says it's not a cyst or a lymph node enlarged. She thinks it is actually in the muscle structure. I only noticed it for the first time about 4 days ago as it only sticks out when i tense my neck muscles or push the lump down with my tongue. It is about 2-3cm in size, no pain, rubbery to firm consistancy, no other symptoms and not particularly movable. G.P. has told me to come back in 2 weeks for an ultrasound if it hasn't gone by then. I was just hoping to get some ideas or similar stories about what it could be
