Lump in cheek

My 11 day old has a lump in her cheek under the skin. It's quite big and it's firm, like a pea. Midwife said it could be from forceps but she's not sure and to see GP but it's not open til next week now and I'm worried! Had anyone else had this?

Hi - yes my daughter did. Saw paediatric doctor - was linked to forceps. disappeared by itself. now a healthy 3 year old. Don't worry.

Same here - forceps delivery and the lump appeared just near DD's jaw line when she was 8 days old. Midwife said it was common with forceps deliveries and will just be loose tissue. She's 11 weeks old now and it disappeared long ago. Worth getting it checked if you are worried though for peace of mind.
