In the last three days, I have discovered a lump at the top of my jaw on the left side under my ear. It doesn`t hurt except when I push on it.
Could be many different things:
(1) a sebaceous (skin) cyst
(2) MPD/TMJ (Jaw Muscle Jaw Joint Syndrome)
(3) Wisdom Tooth Infection
(4) Cervical (NecK) Lymph Node Inflammation or some other problem.
Have your local dentist check it.
