I had a face lift almost two months ago. About a week after my bandages came off I developed on the left side under my chin towards the top of my neck. My surgeon at first said it was pooling blood and would eventually dissipate. Later he said this was a salivary gland. It had not been there before though he thought it may have been hidden under fat and loose skin.
Several days after my bandages came off I had a sneezing fit due to allergies and felt as though something 'popped' at the time.
Anyway, wondering what this lump is and what i should do. Am concerned that it could be some kind of cancer. My surgeon tells me not to worry and come back and see him in a few months, but if it could be something serious shouldn't I see someone sooner than that?
And yes, I do have a history of smoking, hence my concern.
