Customer Question

Hi... I am a 49 year old female. I have noticed an area on my left lower jaw that is very tender to the touch. It seems to be located directly on the bone when pressed. Slight swelling noted. It does not hurt any other time except when touched. It is located
more towards the front of my chin. Thoughts??
