Hello Joanddan16, 

Welcome to our forum! I am sorry to hear about this lumo you found on your daughter's jaw line. It is reassuring that her X ray came back normal but I can understand why you are still feeling worried as you have been put on an urgent CT scan waiting list. It's a shame no one actually told you anything. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long now for this important CT scan and to get some answers. Try and resist the urge to look anything up online if you can as it will only make you worry more. I am keeping everything crossed that you find out more very soon. 

I hope that you will hear from others here who have been through this before and that they will come and share their story with you. I hope your little girl is ok and that you get to the bottom of this very soon.

Best wishes,
