Lump Under my Chin
I have a lump under my chin, but I think it is from my tooth or my ear as I have ear ache. Please can you give advice as to what to do? Thanks.
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Any mass present for more than 2 weeks is considered abnormal and should be evaluated. You need a good head and neck evaluation, possibly a scan, and maybe even a biopsy. Make sure you see a maxillofacial surgeon.
