Question: Painful under my chin


 lilita_11 - Fri Sep 09, 2005 10:18 pm

I've had some massive pain continually going for the past 3 days, as well as much more swelling. It's Under my chin, pretty close to my MANDIBULAR. It hurts to tilt my head forward, eat, or do anything. Pls HELP.
Thanks

This swelling and pain could result from one of two things: infection with the collection of pus, or a collection of blood or what is known as a 'hematoma'.
If you have not already seen a doctor, please do not waste any more time.
