Please answer. Thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints about the appearance of a lump in your child's lower jaw, can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Enlarged lymph nodes
Inflammation of the salivary glands
Salivary gland stones
Bacterial or viral infections
Imbalance of the thyroid gland
And other possibilities also depend on the characteristics of the lump regarding the level of violence, its shape, size, amount, mobility, and accompanying symptoms that still exist today. Our advice, check your child at a pediatrician or ENT doctor so that a direct examination of his complaint can be done, and the diagnosis and the best treatment will be determined later.
Meanwhile there is no need to worry too much, take care of your child's immune system by keeping him away from sick people, dust, pollution and cigarette smoke, meet their nutritional needs, do not give medicine without doctor's advice, and immediately check him. So, hopefully answering your question.
