Lung cancer lump in face

Hi all was wondering if I could get some help, my dad -terminal lung cancer secondary lymphs- has noticed a lump on his face. Im looking through all the symptoms and its not coming up. Not sure if I should call oncology for him or not? It's a hard lump close to his mouth. If this Has happened to anyone please reply.


Many kind thanks

Hi Kitty,


I am in no way qualified to answer this question but but my feeling is that you should talk it over with your oncology doctor or nurse. Maybe you should give the Cancer Research nurses a call via this site - details on the home page. I've phoned them about stuff and they were really helpful.


Good luck and I hope all goes well.

Hi Kitty


I am no expert at all, but  if I was you I would certainly ring oncology it will certainly put your mind at rest please ring first thing in the morning.  It just might be something minor so please ring for peace of mind.


Best wishes

Re: Lung cancer lump in face

Thank you for your posting. I am sorry it has taken us a while to reply.

You have explained that your dad has lung cancer and has a lump on the side of his face.

I am afraid it’s not possible to say what could be causing this here on the forum so I also agree that you should call the oncology team to let them know.  Be sure to let them know if it gets in the way of eating, drinking or causes your dad any pain or discomfort too.

I hope his has helped
