Painful lump in neck gland

Common Questions and Answers about Painful lump in neck gland

lump

There's a lump there that really hurts and several lumps around my neck and throat. I get the pain in my ear and in part of the lower face too and lose hearing now and then in my right ear when my gland hurts. But it's coming from my gland. I've had really bad fatigue, REALLY bad, as in nearly fall over in the street bad. What could be the problem? I've seen my GP who refered me to a ENT who took a MRI of my ears... even though it was my gland that was hurting... Which took FOREVER to sort out.
I have recently come across a small lump in the right side of my neck located just past the halfway point of my neck and slightly towards the back (behind my ear as opposed to in front of it). The lump is not painful, hard, and I can move it slightly up and down, and it's not round more of and oval shape. I don't smoke or drink, I am however tired all the time.
I went to the doctors, and he seems told me it was nothing to worry about, and that it was most likely a swollon gland. However I have never had a swollon gland in that location, and its not painful. Am I looking to much into this? Something just doesn't feel right about this..... Otherwise, i'm a perfectly healthy individual, rarely sick. Thank you very much, Matthew.
This lump grew inside of my gland in my neck which is very rare. They usually grow on the gland. If I were you I would go to the doctor and get it removed and have them test it to see if it was cancerous. My doctor told me that if you touch the lump and it moves freely its cancerous, if it dosn't move then its non cancerous and is just a benign tumor. Good Luck.
3 hours ago a hard lump about golf ball size appeared under my jaw, left side between chin and ear. Not painful to touch, but slight discomfort swallowing. It seems to go up and down in size.
With the thought of lymphoma on my mind, I began palpating other areas of my body looking for additional enlargements. Checked beck an arm pits and both groins. I did find a hard lump in the neck. It's smaller than my finger tip however it is very firm. Cervical lymph node. I felt it over a week ago an thought nothing of it. Although small, is it normal to be able to palpate a lymph node if it is not swollen. It's pretty firm and the only one I can feel.
My son felt a burning flow of maybe acid reflux stuff in neck directly under his chin where the tounge is on the right side. He then felt pain & burning from that area travel to the fenulum( under tounge) & a lump appeared that is very painful, could this be a salivatory gland issue? He can not even eat yogurt or the discomfort is almost unbearable. This happened as he was eating ice cream, don't know if that is related or not.
I have a small lump on my neck, it is on the right side about halfway up. It is quite small, probably not much bigger than a pea and it feels like it is located on the neck muscle (of course I suppose it could be behind it and pushing the muscle, I am not qualified to say but I don’t think so). I have played sport before and it feels to me exactly like the kind of scar tissue you can get after a pulled muscle.
4 days ago I got a painful swollen gland in my neck, i have not been sick w/ a cold or anything that would cause this...when i google'd for the symptons and saw this forum i couldn't believe it because I too use Listerine Pre Brush Whitening. I have discontinued use of it as of 4 days ago and my swollen gland has not changed. Not sure if this is a coincedence but I have never had a swollen gland in my neck before!

My shoulder muscles are going into spasm frequently and it is quite painful. My neck also very painful also but I expected that since I was not having a fusion. Please someone let me know if this sounds like nerve damage. I am thinking maybe I waited too long to have this done and there is some perminent damage. I had stenosis and the left side is supposed to be feeling better. What does anyone think may be going omn. It is a burning, aching feeling.
I have been thinking a lot this week, specially about the lump node (swollen gland) in the left side of my neck appearing exactly 2-3 weeks after exposure (too bad coincidence), and I decided to test to totally move on with my life (couldn't wait for the 3 months one). I have been reading a lot and I know a 9 week Negative would be virtually conclusive so I will be able to turn the page finally.
now i foresee having to have the rest of these teeth pulled!! i had a swollen gland in my neck for about 4 months now since i really hadnt been in no major distress i kept putting it off on allergies-which i know i have probs with...first week of june 08 my 4yr old son had a earache with the come a go fevers--beginning the 2nd week he came from outside and told me his ear had popped ---ok!!! now we might get some relief...it started draining ...and then pouring...
I have also discovered a lump in my neck right behind my ear and by my jaw line. It doesn't move and it isn't painful but I'm very concerned about it. I've been gaining weight and have been extremely fatigued. I just moved to Florida and don't have a doctor yet. Do you think I should have it checked at an urgent care or hospital? Does anyone know what it could possibly be?
Also, just after my shower tonight I took at look in the mirror to see if I can tell more closely what it is, the lump is under the skin, round, pea size, hard, I squeeze it and it looked like there was puss coming out of a pour. Anyway, how long should I wait to see a doctor? 1 week?

I developed a very large (golf ball size) swollen gland in my neck which caused me to have very bad headaches, but other that that I felt fine. I had chest xrays, ultra sound scans, ENT check ups, and all seemed fine. I had a biopsy an eventually they said it was Cat Scratch. It took about 4 months for the lymph node to go down fully, it is not large anymore but I can feel the lymph node (it is hard - due to the damage apparently).
I have had a swollen gland since dec did go to ent in jan back in march. in the beginning I als o had ear pain took antiobiotics did not help had a ct scan done on gland he said it was a little big bu not to be concerned. He told me tha I have bad sinuses which can cause a gland to swell and ear pain. started taking flonase spray at night ear pain gone but gland still swollen. he said it can stay like that for a little while. I go for a checkup again in sept. Gland seems to stay the same.
I woke up one morning around a month and a half ago with a huge lump in my neck on the left side. It was extremely painful so I decided to visit the urgent care. The doctor there said he thought it was an infection from my two bad teeth or could be MRSA because I also had a small spot on my face but I just thought it was a pimple (which I had picked at the night before). He put me on a 5 day round of Augmentin.

The swelling was not always present but would appear like a golf ball every time I ate or salivated when I smelled certain things. It was painful! Turned out I had tiny stones blocking the salivary gland from getting the saliva out to the tiny structure under my tongue (the duct). The saliva would back up and cause the swelling. Not much you can do unless the stones get large enough for removal with a cannula- no surgery needed. Good luck!

I've seen THREE endocrinologists (going on 4), an Immunologist, ENT (who pointed towards the thyroid more than once), Allergist, a dentist specializing in TMJ and even a chiropractor which felt like it was irritating my neck with adjustments. It started with a choking feeling in my neck. I came home from work ripping off my turtle neck and having dry choking heaves. After that I couldn't wear anything around my neck including necklaces, turtlenecks, or my hair touching it.

Hello. I get a lump on my earlobe every now and them. They grow to about 1 cm in diameter and are usually not painful or itchy. They go away spontaneously after a couple weeks. However, I got another lump, and this time, it extended down a little below the earlobe. I lanced it and tried to squeeze it, but I couldn't get anything to come out.
Hello again. I have this thing in my neck that I originally believed to be one of my glands, but now I'm not so sure. I can't really feel it until it shoots upwards in my neck and gets stuck and is very painful. When this happens, I can't twist my neck at all and I can't open my mouth, but I pretty much have to try and twist my neck and open my jaw for it to shoot back to its original position.
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. I cant hear anything in that ear either. I work in a Pharmacy so I know painkillers and have been taking the strongest ones i can get - But its just getting worse.
