Reply to "Lump under teeth on lower jaw... could it be cancerous?"

Hi, I also have a lump on each side of my jaw. i have jaw pains off and on everyday. when i press it, it moves too and is quite hard. it seems to get bigger and then stops.
i found the first one back in october. and then by november, i found the other one. my doctor said it was just a swollen lymphnode gland because i also had a small cold. he gave me medicine only for the lump. and when i was finished with the medicine and my cold, it was still there. and the pain wasnt going away. i soon developed another cold. and with that, i found the other lump. this one was smaller but now is the same size as the original. i went back to the doctor and he said there was a chance of it being cancer or my wisdom teeth. he again gave me stronger medicine for the lumps and hoped they would go away. they didnt. they are still there and it has been over two months. i visited my orthodontist just earlier today and had x-rays done there. the x-rays showed nothing but when he felt the lumps, he was concerned. he recommended me see his oral sergent friend in another town. im very scared that its not my wisdom teeth. they didnt act like they could seem them coming up to my gums in the x-rays.
please write back telling me how your lumps are or how you treated them.
thank you for listening
