Small Lump in the cheek ...
Hello all,

I posted in the general forum but I didnt get many replies, so I hope to get some info on the particular forum, hope you guys can help.

I am extremely worried about my girlfriend. She has a small lump, not hard and not very large in her right cheek just above the jawline. She said that she feels like her sinus is affected and when you press down on the swelling, the ear hurts a little bit. But thats all, there is no other problem as such, but this swelling has been there for about a month now. It has gone down a little bit but still very much there.
Has anyone experienced anythig like this? I dont think it is a gland because it is rather soft and can be moved around ....

Looking forward to an answer, many thanks to all ....

hi, i had and still have a small lump in my cheek, went to the doctor and he referred me to a specialist who told me it was an enlarged nodule and completely harmless, hope it puts your mind at rest

I have one as well. Posted about it under the skin disorders section but haven't got any replies yet.
