I have a hard bump on my jaw line that's been their for about a month or so now and gets bigger and then goes away and then grows back?

More info needed.: To answer your question completely, you would need a detailed exam. Based on the features you described, I hypothesize that you are describing a lymph node. These can change in size in response to infections. There aren't too many other things that would wax and wane in such a fashion. Best thing to do is keep an eye on it. If no improvement, follow up with your doc. ...Read more

This morning I woke up with a sensation of numbness to my left jaw. I do feel a bump if I touch my jaw. On the mirror I can see the area swollen. Why?

Get to a dentist!!: I would have a radiograph taken of the area in question, a panoramic radiograph would be helpful to make sure there isn't any gross pathology or a wisdom tooth problem, a periapical radiograph can zero in on a particular tooth...Your dentist will know which one or if both is necessary, do not delay go in! ...Read more

Possible lymph node: A neck swelling under the jaw line is a common place to find an enlarged submandibular lymph node. Neck lymph nodes can swell up and then spontaneously regress in the setting of infections, but if the lump hasn't gone away in over a year, it should be evaluated by a physician and possibly removed. Congenital cysts and enlarged salivary glands can also cause a neck lump in that location. ...Read more

Bump on neck: Depends where on the "neck" the mass is located. Just below the jawbone extends from the ear all the way to the chin, so salivary glands and lymph nodes are likely suspects, although tooth related things may also be involved. You may see either an ENT or oral maxillofacial surgeon. ...Read more

Chronic itching near chin/jaw. Tiny little bumps. Always in the exact same location. Could this be eczema?

Chronic itching near chin/jaw. Tiny little bumps. Always in the exact same location. Could this be eczema?

Possibly: This syndrome may also be caused by the skin trauma and irritation caused by shaving with electric shavers or razor blades. I would experiment by shaving with one or the other, changing soaps or lotions and see if it makes a difference. Eczema localized to the chin would be unlikely in my opinion. A dermatologist is better qualified to answer your question, however. ...Read more
