My son has a pea sized lump in his lower left jaw region?

Asked by pleiades (6207 points ) March 9th, 2014

So he’s going to be 2 years old in April and were weening him off the pacifier (only used when he sleeps at this point) but every time he grinds his teeth we were told its best to gently massage the jaw. I don’t know if that actually works I don’t feel relieved if someone massages my jaw but whatever it’s what the therapist say so it sounds reasonable.

This morning I massaged his left jaw and I felt a pea sized lump! It’s not protruding out of his jaw or anything his face structure looks the same…

We will set an appointment with the doctors this week and hopefully it’s just a swollen lymph node…

My question is… Has your kid ever had a swollen lymph node? Does it usually cause pain? My William doesn’t to be in any pain whatsoever?
