Two very mobile lumps on the right side of my neck right under my jaw and I'm curious as to what they are, I had lots of mosquito bites on my face too?

Hello I have found a lump bac of my neck under my hair line its been ther about 4 weeks now my face and head is realy itchy ?
Lump on neck: A lump on the back of the neck could be a cyst or a lipoma. It is unlikely to be a cancer. If you have a rash, with the itchiness, the lump could also be a swollen lymph gland. So i would treat the itchiness with dandruff shampoo and Hydrocortisone cream1%, and i would apply warm compresses to the lump. See a doctor if you are not better after a week or two. ...Read more
I have jaw pain in the left side of my face, minor congestion (normal for me), and feeling of a lump in the left side of my neck. Could this be sinus?
Sinus: The maxillary sinus is located near your nose. If the pain is coming from there, then it might be a sinus infection. You could be coming down with a cold or have a bad tooth. A rotten tooth in the lower jaw can cause an infection that is draining into a space in the floor of the mouth. If you feel it is the latter, definitely go get checked! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a huge lump on side of neck , ear, and side of face . Can't eat normally ! Hurts constant ; what is wrong with me ! Should I go ER ?
At least seek urgent: Help. You may not need to go to the ER, particularly if you can seek your primary care provider urgently, otherwise, you are right, the ER may be necessary. If you can't eat well or drink then you need to seek help ASAP. This could be from a severely inflammed lymph node or a parotid gland infection/stone, or an abscess. Don't wait too long. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
