Lump on left side of neck just under jaw line, can only be felt when I tense muscles and when I lie on my side it sits on jaw tender to touch. Cancer?

Unlikely: This "lump" sounds like it could be a lymph node. Lymph nodes can enlarge and often feel tender if you have an infection.

A lump on under my jaw, my ear feels like I have a ear infection but I don't all on my left side of neck, hurts but I don't have strep I got tested?

Infection: You still have an infection...And it could be viral or bacterial. A negative strep is nice but sometimes it cannot be found on the tonsils if it is in the lymph node itself. Your ear hurts because the pain is referred up the eustachian tube to your ear fro your throat. Homeopathic pulsatilla may help as may gargling with salt water. Your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics if it is persistent. ...Read more
