When you say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> her ear do you mean low just above her neck or exactly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the ear, could be a lymph node could be a cyst, I suggest you ask the doctor what it could be .
I forgot about it until yesterday when I was showering washing behind the ears with soap when I felt two more lumps (that are not painful) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the ear on the neck area. I am Hypothyroid and last year I was experiencing throbbing in the ear. They ran tests and found I have a very small lump on my thyroid not to be alarmed too small for biopsy. For the past 8 months or so I have been experiencing pain in the ear when I sleep on that side.
I have a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> growing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my ear. I have to say Im a bit concerned. its bigger than a pea and smaller than a walnut, maybe the size of a small marble. its feels rather sore and warm which makes me think its some type of pus filled internal skin infection. Well, I hope its not a tumor. The problem here is I have no health insurance and practically no money. So Im not really sure what to do.
About a year ago i woke up with a burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my left ear found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. Now let me add that i had wore some cheap earrings. But it has been almost a year since. The burning pain would shoot down my neck and into my breast that happened off and on for months and finally quite. i had itching all over and mostly on the lump. now the itching on the lump doesn't happen as often. Now the lump Burns like every 3/4 days. When i push on it it seems to flatten out but returns within hours.
I have had this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my right ear for the last 2-3 weeks. it doesn't seem like it is really hard nor soft. But my worry is that...ever since I had this lump,I also have been getting a striking pain in the right side of my head. it last up to about 3 secs...just long enough to go through that side of my head. This worries me cause I have never had this problems before. Can someone help me...please?!?!?
I have a 5 year old son who has a hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> his ear. it is rather large but has caused him no symptoms. He's not complaining about anything hurting. He has had a problem in the past with swollen lymph nodes in his neck but I've never seen one behind his ear like this one. I'm a very parnoid mom. We adopted him from overseas and have very little health info on him. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on my next just beneath and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my ear.. ive been to the doctors and they said it was a boil in my ear canal, i cant see it inside my ear as its too deep. But looking at my neck you can see and feel it. its very hard, painful and hot. ive had it for about 12 days. The Doctor gave me antibiotics for a week, Doxycycline. Im coming to the end of them but the boil seems to be getting bigger and alot more painful. I cant sleep, i cant even eat properly because it hurts so much.
Hi i was told by the doctor in the hiv forum that small 0.5cm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> ear would be a symptom for hiv but i have since seen a post from a person who has hiv complaining of a lymph node behind his/her ear? is it even possible to not have any symptoms then get them like 7 months later?
About a year ago I noticed a small hard unmoveable lump behind my right ear.. (between my ear and my hair line of my neck) I wasn't to worried about it until about two weeks ago when my wife was able to SEE it. I haven't been touching it a whole lot cause I figured it was probably a lymph node, and I didn't want to irratate it. it doesn't hurt and it is now about the size of a nickel.... can someone please give me an idea what is going on?
I found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my ear. it is hard and doesnt hurt at all. its strange in shape and not irratated at all. its been almost a month. I am concerned especially because I am a smoker and its close to my neck.
Is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in the bony area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the ear or in the soft tissue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the ear as if it is a lymph node? If it is a swollen lymph node then yes it could be from an infection. But do you have any other symptoms? When a lymph node is hard it may not be a lymph node or it could be a problem. So you should see a doctor about this. You probably should see an ear nose and throat doctor if you can go straight to one. They can feel it and decide the next course of action.
i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> her ear on the bone part (not on the ear itself). i touched it and it hurts. it's about as big as an eraser on top of a pencil or a pea. it is not red or anything (skin color). i get very worried about these kind of things and will give her dr. a call but in the mean time i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what it may be? like i said, i am worried.
I will not be able to give you any advice but I know there are a lot of different kinds of lumps behind the ear and very different causes. So, now that we know the exact location... it would be good to know the size and what it feels like. Having had a hard "lump behind my ear", same location, all my life, I was wondering whether you may have had that lump for a long time and only discovered it now due to the sinus infection pains?
Hi I noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my ear a few years ago and went to see a doctor about it who said it was a cyst and not to worry. On Sunday I noticed it had got really big (visible, about pea sized) and then found another one at the top of my neck too. The one behind my ear is hard and painless and the one on my neck feels bigger and softer and is a bit tender.
I woke up this morning and found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my left ear on the bone. it is not sore to the touch but my neck and that area is sore. What could it be i think i have had this before.
my son had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> his ear (he's 30 ) but it still scared me. After taking all the meds from a Dr and still there he finally went to a Dentist and lump was caused from a tooth. Dentist gave him more meds treated the tooth and lump went away. You might want to get it checked out just to be sure it not from a tooth.
HI, I have recently noticed that i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my right ear, it hurts to touch and is giving me pain down my neck and in my wrist. I am also having ear pain. can anyone help? thank you.
Also When I was a baby I had really bad ezcema until I was around five years old. I've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my ear for as long as I can remember, could this of swelled up when I was a child and never gone down? The doctors just tell me not to worry but they've never done any tests on it. I also have a few lumps on my head at the back near the hairline.
I also have these problems. I have a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> each ear but the 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the right ear is bigger. I am also getting headache, earache and have a sore throat. I went to the doctor 3 days ago and they said it was a throat infection and the lumps were just lymph nodes. I dont see how a throat infection would give me headache and earach. He gave me antibiotics but they dont seem to be helping. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow as I am very scared now.
