Spot!

Recommended Posts

Can someone please ease my anxiety at the moment that might flare up if I dont speak to someone smile.png

Briefly I got a spot on my face during the weekend - it was red and sore yesterday - woke up this morning - squeezed it and it popped - upon washing my face I felt on the same side by my jaw the area under the ear lobe is a lymph node that is firmer than the left side of my jaw, could this be slighly enlarged due to the spot on my face?

Please someone put some rational thinking past me smile.png

Yes! I had that happen on my jaw/chin area and once a node on the back of my head was enlarged. I had a bump on my head and scratched it and irritated it, cue the lymph node swelling. The same thing happened with the nodes on my jaw and chin. It can definitely be from that.

The 3 or so little nodes in front of the ear can enlarge and become hard, never go down. They're given a funny name that reminded me of cannon balls or pellets.  They're benign and basically stop working and harden.  I've had one in front of my right ear as long as I can remember.  I'm talking 50 years or more.
