Lump Under The Chin, Tender And Sometimes Painful?
Noon, r n r nI have a complaint, namely a flaccid lump under the chin since 2 weeks ago. I read several articles, he said it was an immune reaction due to an infection in the body, which would go away on its own. The lump that I experienced was not painful, but sometimes it felt painful. What caught my attention was that the lump disappeared a few moments after I ate / drank, then came back about 5 minutes later. Then my questions, 1) When should I check for this lump to the doctor ?; 2) What doctors should I visit? Because in the past I had a similar problem in the armpit, then I went to an internist and a surgeon and almost got surgery. However, it turns out that this problem can be overcome by a dermatologist. thanks.
