Dr. Nick Debnath answered:

I have a lump under my chin near my neck what is it?

Many possible causes

Neck
There are many possible causes for a lump under your chin, so I would recommend a thorough evaluation by your physician. Possible causes include swollen lymph nodes, benign skin cysts, salivary gland swelling, congenital cysts, or rare tumors. Factors such as location, size, and duration make some of these more or less likely.

Under my chin on the upper right of my neck is a hard pea sized lump. What could this be?

Lymph node or cyst

Open-uri20120403-17343-rh5i9v
A small lump in the neck is usually a 'reactive lymph node' as the result of some viral upper respiratory infection. Lymph nodes are part of a healthy immune system. ANOTHER possibility is a sebaceous cyst. If the 'lump' enlarges or becomes painful you should get seen.

Small little round - ball type lumps on my neck and side of my chin. What does this sound like?

Monitoring Centers

Head-face-chin
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad 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
