bumps

Hi My name is steffani and I have a big swollen lump right under my ear..It hurts to touch it and it kinda feels like its putting presser on my ear like an ear ache..I was just wondering if you would know what it could be?
3 months ago i noticed a lump on side of my left wrist, and gets painful sometimes on certain hand movements. And just yesterday, i found out that I have a lump behind my left ear. I've been having severe headaches as well as toothaches on the left side also. it seems that all these are happening on the left side of my body. additional info: i gave birth last april, preterm (30-31 weeks).
It sounds like your lymphnodes may be swollen and anything can cause that. Allergies (this always happens to me) water in the ear, infection anywhere in the body, big or small. Someone asked the same question for their daughter on another form (strangly using the exact same words as you did). You can go here. http://www.medhelp.
I have a golden retriever and I just discovered that she has lumps all over the ear flaps, under the skin, what could it be
I think I know what you are talking about. I too have lumps, just under the ear behind my jaw bone. It was always a very tender spot for me on each side. I noticed the left side bump was way larger than the other side. And the left side would often give me sharp random pains now and then. I asked many doctor's what could be here causing this? No one could really answer my question with confidence.
She gave me a breast exam and found multiple lumps, that I did not find, and she also felt the lumps under my arm. She then sent me for a ultrasound, which I had the next day and they found nothing. Everything was clear. Five days later I got my first period in three years ( I had been on the Depo Provera shot and recently discontinued it. I failed to get the scheduled shot in August). When I went back to the doctor she felt new lumps and could not find some of the old ones.
I think it's an anxiety thing, but I keep searching my body for other lumps. I feel around my sides and feel lots of things that I consider lumps, but they do not poke out of my skin (it's under my skin), so I suppose it's probably just my... flesh (or other things that are supposed to be there). I have become paranoid about it and earlier felt a spot on my arm (close to my arm pit) that could be a lump or nodule, but it could also be part of my muscle.
I had a pimple in my outter ear and I scratched it and after that a bump was swollen under my ear (bellow my ear and above my jaw bone ) is that normal ? Is it a lymph node or. Another pimple? Its inside the skin and you can't really see it but can easly be felt. And in the same place under my other ear there is nothing !!
2 years ago I saw a doctor about two abnormal lumps in my neck. Both lumps are on the left side, one is more on my shoulder. The doctor didn't think anything of it so neither did I, though I did notice the lumps change in size sometimes. I also developed a lump in my right arm, just above my elbow and thought nothing of it. 2 days ago I woke up with a large lump in my groin that is much bigger than the other ones I have so I went and saw the doctor yesterday.
My sister had this type swelling under her ear and it was a metastases from lung cancer and how she discovered she had it. Another had one in nearly the same area and the swelling was a result of a gum infection and the node wasn't able to filter the infection fast enough. Please see a doctor....can be anything from major to a minor illness but certainly needs to be checked by a professional.
I went to the doc that day it was totally cleared up. Thought it was ear infection (though no ear pain whatsoever). About 3 weeks later it returned. Went to the doc immediately, she gave me steroid cream. Didnt help, went away as before in about 3 weeks. During the time it was gone I developed my period, seemingly unrelated, but i am on seasonale and was not due for it. I had it for three weeks, when my ear flared up again, lymp node and all.
Not sure where my question may lead, but I ask them because I get lumps, bumps, in my ear lobes and I believe they are pimples under the skin. In my case they feel like peas, sometimes larger. They come and go, and very rarely one gets large enough to be visible and it will at some point rupture usually on the neck side of the ear lob. Not a nice social thing for it to do, but it isn't often. I don't believe I have ever discussed with a doctor.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If you have a slight ear infection, wax in ear, caries in tooth, exposed root canals or a mouth infection, then this lump could be a swollen lymph node. You need to rule out these causes to know what has caused this. Alternatively it can be a harmless cyst or a neurofibroma (harmless collection of nerve and fiber tissue). It is difficult to comment beyond that without examining. Please consult a doctor. Else watch the lump every 10-15 days.
Hi, A few months ago I developed a hard lump right under my ear lobe, at the top of my jaw bone approximately 1/2 an inch wide. It is not painful, but it has an unpleasant inflammatory feeling like a numbness/tingling/itchiness that feels deep inside (not on the surface of the skin). It started with just a few days, but now it is constant. I have now developed another lump in my cheek, that I discovered just a week ago, and it has the same sensation. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have several painful lumps in my armpit, that almost feel swollen. I have recently had a middle ear infection and have been taking 875mg amoxicillin. It started out with one small one, and spread to a lot of my armpit.. they almost seem to connect at points. They are under the skin, and have been there for 2 1/2 days. What's going on with my armpit?
I was there about a month when I noticed a swollen lymph node under my left ear. I freaked and immediately went and saw a Dr. His diagnosis was Sinusitis. I was given a round of anti-biotics, but it didn't help. So I went and got a second opinion, and this guy wanted to run some blood test. He did and everything came back fine. Finally I was able to see my main doctor, and she believed it was all due to allergies as the inside of my nose, was very red. So I left and thought nothing more of it.
I am 17 years old and i have a nickel sized bump behind mt left ear. Its been there for over two years that i can remember. Its hard and when i mess with it it hurts. Its under my skin and it can move around a little. I have never got it checked out because my mom hasn't seemed worried about it. Then about 2 days ago i felt something of the same sort just a tad smaller in my neck on the same side (left side). i thought nothing of it thinking it is a swollen lymph node.
The only thing that is literally keeping me from going insane with these lumps is that fact that I read and have been told that small pea size lumps are normal. I appreciate any help or advice.

Hi everyone. I posted in the ear, nose, and throat forum and had no luck. Hopefully I will get some here. About 8 months ago I first found a small hard lump in my neck under my jaw. I can't see it through my skin I can just feel it. I didn't think anything of it until about 2 months ago when I randomly was feeling my neck and felt that same lump again. Now due to my hypochondria, I am obsessed with this lump. It hasn't grown, at least not to my knowledge, since first finding it 8 months ago.

The left side has no lumps. Please help. (although no blood relation i just had a family member diagnosed with cancer in the same area) So I am very worried. Please Help.
The lumps on my boys were about as big as a nickel and felt like a little ball under the skin. So, I hope this helped.
My Puppy Lab Mix has a small lump about the size of my pinky finger nail under the skin on his right ear. It is smooth, round and moveable. It doesn't seem to bother him, even when I move it around. Should I be concerned about this and take the dog back to the vet?
Hi, Hope you can help. I have found a lump under my left armpit that i noticed about 3 months ago. It does not hurt and is deep in the hollow of my armpit. I have been the doctors and the first doctor said it was a swollen lymph gland and it was probably due to my hormonal changes as i am taking cilest birth control pill for polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Hi there, About 5 years ago my husband noticed a hard bump (non movable) right behind my right ear, in the bony area. Thought nothing of it but would mention it to the ENT. He walked away muttering, questioning mastoiditis. These last few years, I have developed another firm, non movable lump just under it but oddly, it seems to reduce in size a little. They are near perfectly round. They do not hurt and no discoloration of the skin. Occasionally my ear aches just a little on that side.
