In either event, if it has been present for that long, you should see your doctor, who can actually examine it. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Get to a doc!: I agree with the previous answer. Though this may be something benign (not cancer), you need this evaluated by ultrasound to start, followed by either more imaging or biopsy.

No symptoms for 3yrs lump left side of neck, just under the jawbone, changes size. Can it be cancer? Feel fine, sometimes discomfort but no pain.

See oral surgeon: The lump may be nothing, but if you haven't had it checked by an oral surgeon, then please make an appointment. Cancer doesn't necessarily give you any sign of pain, so have it checked and possible biopsy to be sure. ...Read more
