I had a lump on my neck right at the point of my jaw. Turned out to be a benign tumour on.near the parotid (?) gland. Absolutely fine although of course I was sh*tting myself at the time. Just wanted to reassure you that not everything is baaaaaad.
my DP had a lump on his neck similar to what you described. he had it removed under general anaesthetic and after tests it was confirmed it was a benign cyst. when we looked back at photos of him we noticed he'd had this lump grow over a period of 6 months without us noticing. we found googling is the worst thing with something like this. go to your GP and get it checked!
