Hello my name is A.J. About a year ago I noticed a small hard unmoveable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> 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 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span> on the bone part (not on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span> 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 found, what sounds like, the same lump behind my left ear. It's hard & stationary & a little painful if I push on it. I just noticed it today. I have been a little stressed out lately...planning my wedding. I does worry me though even though I'm only 36 & otherwise healthy. Should I be concerned??

He is now 6 years old, perfectly healthy, but I notice, and he does too, that it's still there and slightly bigger, more like a small marble now - he says he can move it around, but it starts to hurt when he does - it is on the bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>. He calls it his 'baby bump'. I keep telling myself it's the fatty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. But am inwardly worried. Is it fat and will it never get any bigger?
Hi, A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span> could be due to throat infection, insect bite, accidental trauma to the site, ear infection , etc. Lymph nodes in the region are known as post auricular lymph nodes and can enlarge secondary to infection, inflammation, etc. You could try some warm compresses at the site, warm saline gargles for his sore throat and some oral antihistamine medications for the swelling. This could be mastoiditis, cervical lymphadenopathy or parotitis.
I now have a small pea sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>. It has really been painful for me the last couple days. My sinuses are bugging me as well. It is a continuous pain that only goes away when I lie on it or push near the area. It really hurts to touch it. It causes sever headaches all around. I also have felt sick and dizzy. I went to the clinic again. The doctor there asked me if I had bumped my head on something. Of course I think I would know.
After two weeks he developed a hard painful swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> his right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>. It was small at first but noticed it had enlarged but not painful anymore. Worried about the size of the swelling as it is that of a small marble. Also two weeks before he went for the sputum test he had an infection of a pimple like swelling on his right ear lobe. There was pus. I had cleaned it with an antiseptic lotion and had applied an antibiotic ointment. It has since healed.

If there is headache associated with redness behind the ear alongwith tenderness on touching the bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span> it could be mastoiditis(inflammation of bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>)or inflamed lymph node. Inflammation of the external ear or otitis externa is possible if the ear is swollen and hurts on pulling. This could be a occipital migraine headache, tension headaches, headache due to nerve compression in the cervical spinal cord.

behind both my ears about half way up my head I can feel a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on each side under the skin which feel as hard as bone. They have always been there about as long as I can remember, I assumed they were cartlidge or bone I was feeling, is this correct or could it be anything worse. They dont hurt to touch nor do they move, this isnt behind the ear lobe so know not a gland, much higher up on the head behind the ear.
I noticed 2 days ago a small hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>. Both the small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> (approx the size of a large pin head) and the surrounding area are quite sore & tender to the touch. The lump is on the bone just behind the ear, about half way up. It could not be an infected lymph node as it is too hard and feels as if it's part of the bone itself. It doesn't move. Any ideas?????????
I have found a small painful lump at the base of my skull on the lower right side--just above the hair line on that bone right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>---seemed to come up yesterday----no lesion or break in the skin or redness--just painful and slightly squishy--I have an appointment with dermatologist in about 2 weeks---does this seem like a dermatologist issue?
I reached up to rub it, and noticed this small, firm bump about half an inch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>. Rubbing it, I figured it would go away in a day or two, so I let it be. Over the next week, I couldn't stop touching it when my thoughts got idle..It wouldn't really move. It just felt like I had a bit of extra bone there. It didn't hurt or anything. After the first week though, I notice it was bigger, more pronounced. My left ear was also slightly stiffer then the other.
After a while (that same day), I noticed there were two pea sized bumps right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span> (not on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>, on the head). The pain has gradually gone away, but the lumps remain. They are hard, if you feel behind the ear where the skull ends and the muscle begins, they are right and the end of the boney part. This all started in my sleep (although if felt as if someone karate chopped me in the back of my head).
) hers is much smaller, but of course we are having it removed for obvious reasons (her sister). the only issue is, just today i found another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on her head. this one is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> her right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>, and it is quite large. it wasn't there before. anyone who posted about lumps behind the ear - was this a lymph node or dermoid cyst? her surgery is scheduled for the 24th, i'm calling the neurosurgeon tomorrow to see if she needs another mri prior to surgery. am suddenly worried where i wasn't before...
Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Under, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> his right elsow on his rib area he developed a small, what I thought was a lipoma. A week later my daughter looked at it and said she didn't think so. Either it was something foreign, like a sticker, or something more ominous. Whe I took him to the vet this past week, she told me to keep an eye on it and if it gets larger the will go ahead and take it off. Like you, I thought it had come on overnight but it does seem a little bigger to me.
Without any further description, the EMT put his finger right on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> and told me I had arthritis of the hyoid bone. He gave me some anti-inflamaty drugs. While I was relieved that the EMT recognized my symptoms, I have occasional doubts that something more serious is going on. It really helps me to have you all reporting the same symptoms and concluding its the hyoid bone. I never had any trauma to the neck.
