I noticed today a hard lump under my chin. I don't know how long it's been there. It's not very big, but it's solid. It doesn't cause any pain, but since I've found it I am super aware of it. I can move it around, and whatever it is, it's under the skin.
Any ideas what this may be? I'm pointing at it in the picture.
It is possible that you are having an enlarged lymph node. Our face has lots of blood vessels and lymph vessels .Any infection, inflammation or allergy can produce a local reaction in form of enlarged lymph nodes. Any viral or bacterial infection can lead to enlargement of lymph nodes. You should consult your doctor and get it examined.
Take care and regards!
