It will make you feel better if a physician examines you.

General rule of thumb for me if it's on one side I check the other to see if it's normal.  Might not be the best strategy but it does work to calm my fears.  There are lymph nodes right under the jaw line.  If you feel them there and it's more than one that is swollen you would have other symptoms to indicate sickness.  If they feel about the size of a pea you are probably okay.

I wouldn't worry unless they seem rather big or are very hard.  I can feel them under mine as well in a few places and they seem normal to me. 

They have probably always been there and you just now noticed them.  I know I discover knew things and then have to make sure they are normal.  We have interesting spots all over our bodies that really like to mess with our hypochondria. 

The best advice I could give you is keep an eye on them if they get bigger or don't go away see your doctor and make sure.

I had this worry a month back, under my jaw close to my ear, swollen.. Rock solid...not moveable.
I freaked out! Especially when you google!
Doctor examined it and said there was one on the other side the exact same which was a positive thing.  He also said don't use google! Mine were the typical 'bad ones' yet he was not remotely concerned and he's an ent specialist. He even said mine would never go back down... Apparently sometimes the flare up to fight an infection even if we don't feel any symptoms, means they've done there job.
Only be concerned if they grow and keep growing.
It's worth having the doc have a feel to put your mind at ease though, btw if you've been poking them they will grow in response to that! So don't touch! Xxx
