Lumps on my neck and behind my jaw

Hey all,

I have a few lumps that I would just like to get some thoughts on. The first, I guess you could say, is on my neck, kind of under my chin. It's directly in the center, not off to either side, maybe the size of a pecan, and painful to touch. The other, is directly under my left ear and behind my jaw bone. It's harder to feel, unless you press it up against my jaw. It feels as though it's roughly the same size as the other one, and it's not quite as painful to touch.

I first noticed them a few days ago. Not sure that this would have anything to do with this, but I had my tonsils taken out on July 26th.

Just thought I'd get some thoughts from ya'll on what they could be. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. =c) Thanks in advance!

Could be swollen Lymph Nodes. Lymphadenopathy is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection, but can also be caused by other things. You should mention it to your doc. especially if you just underwent tonsillectomy.
