Hi everyone...I have a question if anyone has heard of this. It's not colorectal related but sending a little scare my way still. My 9 year old daughter came to me tonight almost tearful. She said for a couple of days she has had a off and on pain in her cheek when she talks, eats, lays on that side but forgot to mention because it always went away. Tonight it hurt and she felt her face and immediately came to me almost crying. She has a marble size lump in her cheek above her bottom jaw. I felt inside and outside and its definitely not on her gum and not a tooth issue. Its on the face/cheek. I had to calm and reassure her while she was telling me something is wrong, this is not normal and she wanted to go to the hospital tonight (Sunday at 9pm). It's painful to touch and palpate. I just hate these freaky things that come upon us that take us by surprise and I don't like my child to be afraid. I know what she is thinking...
And thoughts, experience, advice please?
