lump on neck

3 hours ago a hard lump about golf ball size appeared under my jaw, left side between chin and ear. Not painful to touch, but slight discomfort swallowing. It seems to go up and down in size.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The lump can be a cyst, parotid gland swelling, swollen lymphnode, abscess or inflamed temporomandibular joint.
The best thing would be to consult a general practitioner or PCP and try and assess what is the cause of your problem. Then proper referral for concerned specialist can take things further and get you proper treatment. Take care!
