I am 25 years old, generally healthy lifestyle, and very well read when it comes to medicine and clinical literature. I recently noticed some kind of growth on the right underside of my jaw. I can move it around, etc, but it is small and otherwise visually unnoticeable. Just curious what it might be/probably is. I suffered an open mandibular fracture a few years ago, but it was on the opposite side of my face, the bone was reset, and it has healed nicely. At my age, odds are it's nothing major, but it still seems unusual, and thus disconcerting, to have even a facial cyst at age 25.
