I am freaking out!
I am a 25- year old female and I just found on the right side of my face a small ball that moves. It is located on the jawline ( above the jawline actually but very near it- so basically located on the face and underneath the skin). I haven't had any infection lately (maybe a very small and practically painless throat swelling or my back teeth that feels slightly weird but nothing special really!Maybe it's my imagination working since I am worried and scared about this ). I've had it for more or less 2 weeks. It is moveable, painless, small and I don't think it grew in the past 2 weeks. What I can say is that on this side I have a tooth on the back of the mouth that was devitalized a few years ago and I think it has to be treated and my wisdom teeth that should be removed according to what the dentist said this summer. On the outside you don't notice the swelling if I don't say anything. However, if I say it people say "oh, yeah it is a bit swollen". What do you think this could be?
