TMJ Jaw Lump.
« on: June 11, 2014, 06:04:15 PM »
Okay so I figured out the majority of my ear problems (dizzy, fluctuating hearing loss) are caused my TMJ a while ago when I saw a doctor. What concerns me now is that on the same side of my jaw problems (the right side) I can physically feel a moveable lump like right by my ear. There is no such lump on the unaffected side. I'm concerned this is not related to my tmj but could be a tumour. Anyone else have this lump?

I have TMJ from years and years of clenching and grinding. I also have a lump on one side just in front of my ear. I've never been sure they are linked.... I've always thought the lump was a shoddy node. I first noticed the lump probably almost 10 years ago. Once in a while it gets a little bigger (allergies, if I have a cold, sometimes with no clear reason). After all this time I've kind of assumed that if it was bad it certainly would have killed me by now!!!

I would bet a whole lot that the cold is EXACTLY why you are
Noticing it.  Glad I could help :).
