Well just in case you haven't already been to a doc...you might want to. Any time you have a lump from no known injury..you should have it checked by your doc. Any time a node is involved it could be something that is secondary. If you have had issues with your teeth...like an abcess you can get swollen in that area. But do some self diagnosis and try to write down any changes in your body that you may not see as results from the Jaw....things can cause other things to act up.

i have the exact same issue as you. I hope you get help. For years I got ridiculed by doctors who thought my problem was anxiety/depression related. Now I throw up all depression pills. only anxiety pills help me a bit. if that is cancer you want to find out fast. soon it might affect you mentally. i already know i have it because i'm not responding to even any antibiotics or anything else, but i'm waiting to do tests. you want to ask the doctor to do an ultrasound and UGI test. That is what i will be getting done in two days and i can't wait because i need to get this condition under as much control as possible. i've been getting spasms as well in my face, so i know whatever i have, it's probably gotten pretty advanced. not my fault either.
