Common Questions and Answers about Bumps behind ears on skull


Avatar n tn I have these recurring bumps that form around my ears. Mostly wear my ear touches my skull (behind or under the earlobe). They only hurt if I apply lots of pressure and their the skin colored. I'm just curious as to what they are? They'll be gone for a while and then I'll just find another new one at random.
Avatar m tn so i have 2 symmetrical bumps that i have had on the backs of both my ears forever and they have never bothered me i always thought everyone had them till my girlfriend and roommate both pointed out they did not have them. i've tried looking it up but have not got any answers. so im just wondering what it could be and if i should be worried about these 2 bumps. they are both hard white skin colored bumps that look kind of like a zit in the exact same place on both ears.

Avatar n tn I was putting my earring on the other day and I noticed a hard lump on my skull behind my right ear and I'm not going to lie.. it freaked me out. My family told me to wait a week and see if it goes down and if not.. to get it checked out. I am just really nervous waiting around.. should I be?
288415 tn?1231634102 Symptoms are itchiness, very wet ears at night on the side or sides that I sleep on and a flaky crust type stuff that forms in the ear which is very hard to remove and hurts like heck when i remove it. I am now preparing to go to a second ENT to see if he/she might have any more ideas.
Avatar n tn I also noticed that it seems to cut down on the red bumps I get on my thighs once in a while. The bumps on my thighs are something I have had ever since I was a kid (on and off). They are different than the bumps on my eyes however. The little bumps on my thighs are more like pimples and come and go. Anyway, it seems like when I take the Oil of Oregano, my skin is much better looking as a whole and those go away.
Avatar n tn Groin Armpit Neck (there is a chain of lymph nodes on either side of the front of the neck, both sides of the neck, and down each side of the back of the neck) Under the jaw and chin Behind the ears On the back of the head Lymph nodes can become swollen from infection, inflammatory conditions, an abscess, or cancer. Other causes of enlarged lymph nodes are rare. By far, the most common cause of swollen lymph nodes is infection.
Avatar n tn I have also developed a rash on and behind my ears it's very itchy and fine bumps. I've been to the doctor and she has out me on an antibiotic for a bladder infection. Are these symptoms normally associated with a bladder infection?
Avatar n tn There are different types of microcalcifications, and based on their pattern on the mammogram it gives the radiologist clues as to their cause. For instance microcalcifications that are more scattered are probably due to a benign (non-cancerous) cause, a “cluster” of microcalcifications may increase concern that there may be an underlying tumor. There may or may not be any 'lesion' visible on mammography.
Avatar n tn I noticed small lump on the back on my neck behind my right ear, it appeared after I got a bad cold and sinus infection. it is painful when pressed. thanks to everyone who posted here. the symptoms does seem to be linked to the sinus issue.
Avatar m tn same things happening to me/ after a few seconds after turning out the light and laying down I start feeling these things here and there, especially around my ears/back of neck, upper shoulder area/ on my face, which drives me crazy -on my leg, foot, arm (it's intermittent)can't sleep much any more, have been wondering different things/ could someone put something in our air-conditioner air handler outside?
Avatar m tn i have these crawling/tingling face +ears problem on my head for years,as soon as i put my head on the pillow to sleep it starts. i have tried boiling all the bed clothes,wiping the mattress etc with straight dettol,etc. and using a pillow with only a plastic bag and no cover on it.. it feels like i am being touched softly with a feather.as soon as my ear is on the pillow it starts inside my ear .. i vaccumn the bed for dust-mites too..
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
1160836 tn?1332333769 Dec came and went no AF so went in to see if I was Pergo but no I was not so they put me on provrea then Clomid on 3-7 100mg. I am now on my 3 and last round of Clomid I am on 150mg 3-7 days and I hope that this time I O because on my last round they told me I O early on cd 15 I have never O in 11 years so that was a good thing. But doc said that the numbers where not where he wanted them to be at so that is why he up my clomid this time.
Avatar n tn These included feeling very weak, shaking all over, light headed/dizzy,numbness/tingling on fingertips and toes, slight shortness of breath and chill. I felt like passing out, flushed. I figured it was from not eating so I grabbed a burger and it seemed to alleviate the problems. Well, it happened again around the same time of day a few days later. But this time, eating didn't help as much. Eventually the symptoms went away. My colleagues observed that I looked very pale.
Avatar f tn The Worst Part Is Just At The Base Of Skull, Where The Bones Are Behind The Ears, Is Where All The Pressure Is. Sometimes When The Pressure Is Really Bad, It Makes Me Feel Really Groggy In The Head And Strange. (Yucky) My Ears Arent Blocked, But They feel as Though There Is A Bit Of Pressure, Like When U Drive Up A Hill, And You Need To Pop Them. Im Just So Sick Of Feeling Like This All Of The Time! If Anyone Has Any Input.........Please Please Please Help!!!
Avatar n tn The 2 bumps located in the back of his head (near the base of his skull - not sure of it's technical term) are often swollen and when he presses on them, he says he feels pressure in his sinuses. He is a Union Ironworker and commonly gets headaches after welding. Several senior coworkers have complained of the same symptoms and relate it to the years of the constant strain,weight and "whiplash motion" of flipping the welding shield down using the neck muscles.
Avatar f tn When i push a little above the left side base of the skull, it feels kinds sore (maybe thats a good word for it) and kinda hurts a little.... but i know im not supposed to be pushing around on my skull either. haha Could it be something with a nerve? Possible I finally over stretched it? It didnt seem like a pulled neck muscle since its on the lower part of my head.... Im a bit of a worrier and hoping its nothing really serious. I alwasy run to the doctor for everything Any comments?!
Avatar n tn My husband has seen the lesions, bumps, etc. appear and, in the beginning, a painful skull-base cyst which ruptured and seemed to then spread. I also have massive pain behind my eyes and down my neck as well as idiopathic episodes of swelling, rash, flushing and on at least one occasion, cyanosis. I'm experiencing cognitive issues (inability to find words, solve puzzles, remember things, etc) and physical issues (tripping, spilling, dizziness, etc).
Avatar m tn I also read about being a danger to others if sick... Day 7-two tender goose eggs on back of skull high up-not in the base of the skull/neck region, not behind/below the ears which was the area mentioned for normal reactions. No reaction at injection site which no longer could see. Day 11 blotchy face which slowly progressed to spotted neck and then upper chest and then breasts and then upper abdomen etc.
Avatar m tn From this another mouth ulcer came with red spots and groin/neck/general muscle pain (I still get some neck pain at top of spine/base of skull). I cannot feel any raised bumps. Behind the ears and at the sides of the neck have been 'pulsing' sometimes. I also had a sore throat for a few days 4/5 weeks after and now mouth feels dry. When I calmed down all symptoms went away. Now at 9 weeks I feel fine, no issues with me at all.
Avatar f tn woke me in the night, my eyes, orbits, felt like they were going to explode from the pressure behind them...my mastoid bone swelled on one side...it felt like all the vessels in my head were expanding, and my nerves were haywire...I couldnt walk....was in the ER many times.....head CT, MRI all negative. a battery of blood work, checking for inflammation, lyme, hormones, pituitary, nothing was materializing. I had now been suffering each day for months...

I have been very anxious about catching HIV from the stupid acts I did.
529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
Avatar n tn I don't get pains from it, it may be a little tender if I press on the indent kind of hard. Is there any condition that would cause my skull to cave in? please help!
Avatar n tn It is in my neck (both sides but the left is worse) and the base of my skull outward toward my ears. My jaw hurts and sometimes I feel a pressure in my ears. Once in a while, my right hand shakes, I feel slightly dizzy or lightheaded or the feeling like my "brain is vibrating" (I know my brain doesn't vibrate but that is what is feels like because whatever I am looking at moves for a second).
Avatar f tn Sometimes they are as some of you described, feeling as if someone is jabbing a pen in my head and sometimes it's just severe pressure that throbs and aches. It's mainly at the back of my head, but sometimes behind my ears or on the crown. I'm not sure, but I think I started getting these pains when I got my laptop. I've always laid down on the bed on my stomach (like now....
Avatar n tn I had a car fall on my head back in '87 ... breaking the bones in the inner ears (as well as cracking my skull and breaking numerous facial bones)... I underwent 6 surgeries, had shunts in my ears, did 6 weeks of bed rest flat on my back (allowed up only 15 total minutes a day) and for the first two years after the accident couldn't walk 10 feet without hanging on to some one or I'd fall. I was blessed enough to work with John Eppley ...
Avatar n tn no i dont- i have a rash on my stomache but i think its because im allergic to the metal on my belt. so what do i do??? how do i get rid of this??? another thing is if my hair falls out or i accidently pull it out with my elastic- it pulls out RIGHT FROM THE ROOT and has a clear substance or white substace attached-- any connection??
