Hello,

My name is***** and am reviewing your question now.

What is the size? Can you move it around? Is it painful to touch?

Its not painful but a little uncomfortable to touch

Thanks for the information.

You don't seem to have any other alarming symptoms at this time. This lump does not sound like anything serious. Most likely it's a swollen lymph node in response to infection. These are usually harmless and tend to subside over 4-5 weeks as your body clears infection. Little bit of discomfort while touching is suggestive of infection related swelling. You can continue to take OTC pain meds and warm compresses for symptomatic relief.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question,you can reply to this post.

Regards,

Dr. Shah

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
