Lump in Jaw

Hi all, I have had a lump under my jaw which I believe is a lymph node.  It is quite big but it isn't there consistently, it comes and goes, usually swelling by the end of the day.  I also have had diarhoea for over 7 weeks.  The lump has been showing itself for a few months.  Can anyone shed some light, I am seeing my GP this week.

  • Hi , sorry to hear the concerns you are having about the lump under your jaw.

    You say that the believed Lymph node changes (wax and wane) during the day, with most blood cancers like Lymphoma's a Lymph Node that is presenting Lymphoma can ver cells will gradually and continually get larger and not wax and wane.

    It is normal for enlarged lymph nodes to wax and wane for many regions including infections.

    Good you are seeing your GP this week - do come back and tell us how you got on.
