Lump along jawline

Just noticed this afternoon a painless lump along my jawline under the skin. It appears to be a bit larger than a pea in size..reminds me of a swollen gland when I feel it. Does anyone have any idea what it might be or had one? Should I give it a few days to see if it goes down..and then get it checked out?

Have no idea what it could be. Be grateful if any one can advise. Thanks.

get these sometimes. It's just a cyst and should disappear on it's own. If it persists you could have an infection, the last one I had accompanied a horrible wisdom tooth infection. Antibiotics sorted it right out.

Ok, thanks. Will wait a bit and see what it does.

I get these all the time - totally harmless but really hard to stop fiddling with when you first notice it!
