Lump under jaw line

I am a 25 year old male with a very stressfull occupation.  I found a dime size painless lump under my jaw line on the right side.  I have allergies to air irritants but I am not currently suffering from the symptoms and I don't have a cold.  The left side has no lumps.  Please help.  (although no blood relation i just had a family member diagnosed with cancer in the same area)  So I am very worried.  Please Help.

Hi.  That painless lump under the jaw line is most likely a prominent lymph node.  Lymph nodes in that area can enlarge if you have a throat or ear infection, or dental cavities.  If you're bothered by it, you may wish to have it checked by a doctor to see if it's anything serious.
