About 5 months ago my boyfriend noticed I had a lump under the right side of my chin, I can feel it when I touch my jaw bone. I thought it would go away, but it has only grown & become painful (at times). The other day my throat (on the right side) would randomly sting with needle-like pain and hurt when I swallowed or moved my tongue. My mom thinks it is a swollen gland, but honestly I have no idea. I dont believe its lymph-nodes; because of the location, what do you think it could be?
