    About 4 weeks ago i it felt like i had enlarged painfull glands under my jaw bone neck area .
This has gone down but has left me with a feeling of discomfort in that same area .
I have been to my GP twice and neither doctor could feel any glands up and said every thing was fine even though i am aware of discomfort and even slight pain ,
I have had a full blood count done and thyroid check all was fine there too .
I still can feel  a lump on each side under my jaw bone and if i lie on one side and press on a certain part of my jaw there is pain , but as i stand up it dissapears

Any mass or lump in the neck that persists for more than two weeks should be examined more throughly.

I would seek a consutation with an ENT surgeon who is better trained and more acutely aware of the subtle changes in the neck region.
