I Have A Tender Jaw
I have a small lump right under my jaw. It is a little sore. I also have horrible teeth and was wondering if it could be and infection in my jaw?
Possible: A small lump could be a developing abscess or perhaps a slightly enlarged lymph nodes from an infected tooth.

I have a wisdom tooth that started to hurt. It got so bad that I had a migraine and felt like a ear ache . Now I have a ball under my jaw that hurts?
See your dentist: If you know you are having problems with your molars I would suggest getting them out sooner than later. If your dentist has recommended having them out it would be wise to follow their advise. Inflammation can develop rather quickly around the wisdom teeth and can cause a sore jaw!

I have a sore throat and my jaw hurts and my head hurts. I also had a bad toothache a week ago. Do i need a dentist or doctor?
Perhaps both?: There is no way to know for sure without actually examining you. My guess is that you have both a dental and a medical problem, although it is possible that the two are related. If you still have a toothache start with a dentist, otherwise start with a physician but also see a dentist as soon as possible as the cause of the toothache will probably resurface as pain soon! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I have been sick for about 10 days now. I have a small lump under my chin. Could it be a lymph node or something else?
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
