lump

i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/lump behind 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 have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Anxiety can show itself as many different symptoms. This sounds like one to me, but have you had your thyroid checked out by a dr?? Best of luck to you.

I would be anything from schoolwork, to internet browsing, to watching tv, to eating, to even just laying down in the dark and I would get these intense sharp pains on the back of my head behind my right ear. This pain only occurs in this location and it comes and goes. At first the pains were simply a nuesance as they would come and go and weren't that bad, but lately they're getting worse causing me to stop what I'm doing until they go away.
I went to the er on on sunday and my glands were swollen, the ones in my neck and but it's due to an infection caused by my teeth and my glands in my groin area were not swollen and never have been. she said the lump i though was a gland was perhaps a small hernia. And i've been so anxious for weeks and she examined me and said i was fine but in my mind i was already dead, but by the grace of GOD i'm fine and it was all in my mind even though i need to treat my oral infection.
I had my impacted wisdom tooth removed on 10/01/2011 (UK) and the surgeon said it had 4 roots instead of 3. 3RD molar was on the lower right hand side of my jaw.I was awake throughout with just injections & happy gas (nitrous oxide) to make the process more comfortable. Had incredible pain a few hours after & extremely sensitive teeth around the front of my lower teeth (incisors) still have the sensitive pain ,especially when it's been cold outside .
Hi, I have a sort of bubble expanding sensation in my right ear, its wierd and uncomfortable. My gland behind said ear is permanently swollen and at any one time can go into overdrive and swell hugely and very painfully. I often suffer with cellulitis infections, which causes the glands behind my ears, down my neck and around my upper back to swell and at times become painful. This is due to another condition I have called Ora Facial Granulomatosis. I also have a paralysed diaphragm.
I am in my 60's and have only just started to have either a swollen face or, on the last two occasions, a swollen tongue, which all started in September. The first time I had a swollen tongue was 4 weeks ago and I ended up in hospital. I had already taken Piriton but it didn't help. At the hospital they gave me Prednisolone which worked very quickly and I was packed off home with another 2 days supply.
I am 43yo male, and recently had US and CT scan of the neck to investigate two swollen lymph nodes which were present for longer than a year in my left neck. Several nodes were found on the jugular(mid) chain, many sub-centimeter and 5 >= 1 CM the largest ones were 2.26, 1.65 and 1.55 CM. They are on both sides of the neck and under my chin as well. Nothing else was found in CTs of abdomen and groin. I have a biopsy scheduled for next month, but have read myself into anxiety attacks.
I continued doing that until the lump was no longer pink and swollen. Though I could still feel something in under my armpit, so I'm going to see an internist soon.
I'm now getting shooting pains behind, in front of left ear, also at back of head, also experiencing pain in left side of jaw with some numbness (like when you've been to dentist and wearing off), also noticed a clicking on my jaw when mouth opened wide. Keep you posted and thanks for you reply.
Lymph Nodes I thought and since I had a cold didn't think much of it. I am now experiencing swollen glands all over my body, it started out on just the left side, except for the neck. (this is the side that I had the gland removed from) Now I am feeling lumps all over that seem to burn and are symmetrically dispursed throughout the body. I have been on antivirals, Pennicillin V for 4 weeks, Augmentin for 20 days, Singular, and Clairnex D.
ok so i was noticing today that i have the same bumps in my mouth on the back of my tongue but just smaller in size its almost all of my taste buds it looks like and my gums are redder than usual i also have a canker sore now behind my top front tooth ..can these symptoms that came up be something different than hypertrophied lingual tonsils or a ectopic thyroid tissue ..and the proton pump inhibitors that you suggested can i get them at the drug store or would i have to get them prescribed ?
I have had a lump in my neck for 7 years. I have buried my head about it till now afraid of what it may be. The lump is non painfull and about the size of a marble. It is slightly visible and protrudes maybe a tenth of an inch from neck. it has grown very slightly in the seven years. The lump is hard and mobile under skin. it feels like its attached to the skin underneath. the skin over it is normal colored. it is located directly in the middle front of neck just beneath my adams apple.
I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
About 3 weeks ago, I noticed a small sore lump half way down my neck, on the side just behind the right ear. After a few days it stopped hurting, but the hard immovable lump stayed (about the width of 2 fingertips). Then, a couple of days ago, I woke up at 3-4am and felt another sore spot, this time more on the front and a little closer to the collarbone, but still on the right side. This is still sore to touch.
My gums are still swollen and irritated at the front two teeth to the point where my bottom teeth are hitting my top gum (I have a serious overbite). To compound this, after I'd seen my family doctor, my gums became very sore on my right side directly behind my molar. It hurts to chew there and is more irritated on the bottom jaw than in the upper jaw. With my tongue I can feel a fairly hard lump in the location where my wisdom tooth would have been.
By June 2007 I had developed a v shaped lump behind my two central top front teeth, this sometimes all but disappears (usually in the mornings) and gives me no pain at all, and is smack in the centre.
I noticed last night while in the shower that there was a swollen lump directly behind the curve in my jaw on the right side of my face (in between the back of the jaw and almost below my ear). Initially, I thought it might be a lymphnode until I researched it and determined that it is most likely the parotid. It is only slightly larger than the left and is tender (mildly) but only it you push on it and then a little while thereafter.
The vet looked and said they really don't look that bad. I scrap the front teeth if they start to look built up with tartar. And have been giving them dental bones and such for years. It seems to work. I just thought as long as she was knocked out anyway may as well get them cleaned. I can't get to the back ones myself.
I don't want to loose the tooth as it is a front tooth and is on a bridge with two other teeth but I fear serious side effects if there is infection present. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong with my tooth since the dentist can't see anything wrong on the x-rays but the pain will not go away? Thanks in advance for any help you can suggest.
He looked over my panorex that he had taken last week, he didnt see anything that would be related to adjacent teeth, however I was told that if this happens again then he wants me to see an endontist to have a pulp test done on the tooth in front of and the one behind my original extraction.He said he doesnt feel that they will find anything but he wants it ruled out.
I get a build up of wax in my left ear from it being so swollen and the jaw bone connecting to my ear is sore and swollen as well. Im being told by GP it's stress and I am grinding my teeth at night and clenching my jaw. I had a crown put in last year and all these problems have started after that although not sure if there is a connection ....
I have had a swallowing pain for the last few months and there is also a small lump on the front of my neck just under the skin. the lump has been there for several months and the ENT i saw said it was probably just a lymph node. I had a CT scan done with contrast and it didn't show anything. I don't have any difficulty swallowing and actually don't have any pain when swallowing food its usually when i swallow with a dry mouth or just swallowing saliva.
I don't necessarily have ear fullness, but the area behind my ears near the jaw feels odd inside. Almost like they are swollen. It is hard to explain. I am at a loss of what do do next.
since then, pain and numbness has stayed on the left cheek, also around my left eye, the left side of my nose and down to my upper-lip, gum and front teeth. i'm very worried that this could be permanant. is there any ways or methods that i can use to completly cure this problem?
I have been to many doctors and they say the lump is not tongue cancer because it would show on the outside. The lump hasn't grown. It has been the same size for 2 months. I don't know if the lump and the sensation are related. The doctors and dentists don't know what's wrong and told me to live with it. The sensation bugs me and the lump scares me. Any ideas or suggestions?
