Hello, good night Ninuk ...
Lumps under the chin that are not painful can be caused by many possibilities, which to ensure the cause must be examined directly. Possible causes of lumps under the chin include:
submental lymphadenopathy, which is enlarged lymph nodes (KGB) under the chin. Please note that in the head and neck area there are many points of lymph nodes, one of which is under the chin. These lymph nodes can enlarge generally if a person is experiencing an infection and the infection occurs in areas that are close to the gland, such as acute respiratory infections (upper respiratory tract infections), colds, dental infections, ear infections, ear infections, skin infections and so on . In this condition the KGB is palpably enlarged but not painful. Lumps due to lymphadenopathy will generally deflate itself along with the improvement of the infection experienced.
cyst, which is a sac filled with fluid. Just like lymphadenopathy, cysts are also generally painless and harmless
lipoma, the gathering of fatty tissue under the skin. This condition can be experienced anywhere in the entire body, and does not rule out the possibility of under the chin as you experience it. Lipomas are generally painless and also harmless.
Salivary gland stones
Inflammation of the salivary glands
The lump that you are experiencing may be related to complaints of cough, sore throat, and red rash that you experience, if the lump that you are experiencing is lymphadenopathy. As we have mentioned above, the condition of lymphadenipathy can occur due to infection in the area around the lymph node. The lump may also have nothing to do with other complaints that you experience, if the cause is a cyst, lipoma, and so forth. Therefore, to ascertain the complaints that you are experiencing at this time, you should consult a doctor directly, yes. The doctor will ask questions about complaints, conduct a physical examination, and if needed the doctor may also suggest supporting examinations such as examinations blood lab, ultrasound, biopsy, and so on. While waiting for the check schedule, what you can do include: getting enough rest and avoid pressing down on the bump area.
That's it, hope it helps ..
