P.s. I also want to add that since finding the lump I have had a simple CBC blood test because I recently came down with a bad sinus infection. This is all unrelated but I was wondering if in the CBC would something have shown?
Hi, I bet that's just a salivary gland. It might be inflamed, or sometimes a duct gets blocked. (There are even stones, like kidney stones, that can form in a salivary duct.)
The little bump probably won't ever get any bigger, unless you press on it a lot - in which case it might get tender, too. I think there's an ENT group here that you can ask on.
Paranoia actually got the best of me today when I woke up so I went over to a walk in clinic and the doctor felt it and told me it was to small to be anything serious and that it felt like an enlarged lymph node that could have been due to my chronic allergies that I suffer from at least once a week. Since I mentioned that I had first felt it over 6 months ago she assured me I would have seen some growth since but she did say to keep an eye on it just in case.
I do feel a lot better now. :)
