What test could one get that would show if there was something under your cheekbone towards the temple area?

What test could one get that would show if there was something under your cheekbone towards the temple area?

Xray vs ultrasound: I'm trying to envision "under your cheekbone". Do you mean skin & soft tissue covering cheekbone or do you mean cheekbone itself or perhaps even "inside" cheekbone?

Discuss your concerns w/Family Doc or ENT ...Read more

Cause of tender spot over cheekbone an inch b4 the ear, just below temple? Feels almost like a vein or bruise over the bone. Had long time. No injury.

Possibly TMJ: Tender spot in front of ear and below temple can be Temporal Mandibular Joint disorder. Look closely in mirror to note if chin opens vertically or jogs right or left when the jaw is slowly opened and closed.

I fell on the left side of my face today. My cheekbone is swollenand my eye a lil black around it. Head is pounding. Should I go get it checked out?

I fell on the left side of my face today. My cheekbone is swollenand my eye a lil black around it. Head is pounding. Should I go get it checked out?

See a trauma doctor: I would have your situation checked out. Proper physical examination and imaging studies will determine whether or not you have a zygomatic (cheek bone) fracture or an orbital fracture. Such trauma can indirectly affect the globe of your eye and its position... And it can even affect your vision. Simple exam and certain types of x-rays (e.g., cat scan) will help elucidate the problem. ...Read more
