Swollen glands?

oh, i have that, i have that grin. It only bothers me when I touch it, like resting my hand on my chin when im bored, otherwise I forget all about it. I had just thought I had bumped it on something and bruised the bone slightly but that was months ago and I can still feel it....dont think its much to worry about tbh! smile

dentists know a lot more about jaw/head stuff then GPs (imo) - go and see one or get referral to oral medicine specialist
