Hard, painful lump underneath jaw line. What could this be?

Lump under jaw

Head-jaw
Lumps like these warrant a complete evaluation by an oral surgeon or other head and neck specialist, including xrays or CT scans. Sometimes they represent tooth related disease, or a dead tooth. Sometimes they are cysts or tumors. But without more information, it's hard to say.

See your dentist

See your dentist. He will prescribe antibiotics or drain the area. You will probably need root canal treatment.

I have a sudden lump below my jaw. Just to the right of centre line. Not painful. Slight swelling of the nearby lymph node present. Help please?

See an ENT

Head-jaw
It would be most prudent to see an ENT to have the lump evaluated. It may be nothing and simply glandular swelling, or it may need further evaluation with a biopsy or simple excision

Painful swollen lump in front of ear jaw from tooth abscess?

An abscessed tooth is a badly infected tooth. Infection may be spreading to, and causing swelling of, lymph nodes. The best way to Rx this problem is to eliminate the abscess through root canal Rx (preferable) or extraction. Please see your dentist now before infection spreads farther.
