Ear pain neck mass

Common Questions and Answers about Ear pain neck mass


Avatar n tn Thank you for your time. I have a mass in the left side of my neck that lies just below the jawline, in front of the ear. I see an ENT regularly, so when I was in to see him I pointed out the mass, and he said it was not normal. He did an FNA, and that yielded very little. It said the aspirate showed no malignant cells. It is a cyst or benign tumour. He did say that the aspirate doesn't get everything, so malignancy is slight.
Avatar n tn s more obvious to me and combines with other symptoms. I have history of neck/back pain. Now I have a constant pain left side of neck, sense of pretty intense pressure at bottom of back of my head, clicking in neck when turning my head, ear pressure, and most recently intense shooting pain in my left arm around my elbow. Tobacco chewer so even more concerned. Thought?
Avatar f tn The location is behind my ear, about a finger width beyond where my jawbone connects to my skull. The mass appears to be attached to my skull and is about an inch in length - when feeling it I can work my finger down it and then it just drops abruptly and becomes fleshy. It is really hard and doesn't have any give. It feels like a nodule attached to the bottom of my mastoid bone (the curving portion). This doesn't cause any direct pain.

914782 tn?1243435663 I recently had CT scan of head and neck that revealed I have 4 tumors. Three of the tumors are on my jugular (the largest measures 1cm) and one is on my thyroid(measures 1.5cm and is hypodense). This all by itself has made me a nervous wreck because the first thing that comes to my mind is the big scary "C" word. I've had a 'lump' on the left side of my neck just below my ear for approx. 8 years.
1748247 tn?1311799602 For the past 3 days now I have been having a pain radiating from behind my left ear down to my left side of my neck. It is swollen and hot to the touch. I have taken some Advil for the pain, and that does not seem to be doing anything for it. I have i ced it and the pain is still there. I have discovered that there is a lump right under the ear where the jaw connects. That whole side of my face is swollen, hot and painful.
Avatar f tn shape which ends at my neck close to the artery. the pain can be described as a streaking mild electric shock and then slight soft pulses. i have had migraines in the past but they normally go away within the day. other anamolys i have noticed are blurred vision from one second to the next and dizzy spells. anyway out there gone through this? am a bit leary. hope i hear from someone with good news about what i am experiencing.
Avatar n tn I do have a stiff neck alot but I am skeptical to think that it can cause such a rock hard nodule in my neck that wont go away. Anyone else ever have a mass like this? Any opinions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Generally, pain at ear & back of head originates from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, these symptoms aggravate after turning head and typically occur in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
Avatar n tn It only ever lasts for a few minutes but it causes extreme tonsil and ear pain on the left side. I can barely move my neck when it happens. Does anyone know what this is?
Avatar f tn I've been having swollen lypmh nodes in my neck in my neck thy are nova labd but in my right ear behind it for a year I've had this . they did blood work and it came out fine , a chest x ray no enlargement. Now I'm having stomach pain like when I touch my stomach it hurts or when I lay down on it.
Avatar n tn My neck pops too. Mostly when put my ear towards my shoulders. I have a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders. But I've always considered to be stress/ tension. Last time I got a massage the lady said my muscles in my neck and shoulders were REALLY stiff and tense.
1759188 tn?1324678308 and I had the ear pain, it felt as though someone jabbing me with an ice pick....and I also had jaw pain....I would wake some days and it felt that I slept in a position that my jaw held my whole body up....which I know is not so....I also use to get this weird spasm when I would yawn in my throat/neck... Most of that is all gone with my surgery...the fact it is neuro it is hard to track down it does not leave a trace....or tracks as to what it could be...Chiari is very sneaky.
Avatar f tn Hi For about 3 months my neck hurts, especially when i try to tilt my head back or down to the left. The pain radiates to my ear and up the left side of my head. I cant sleep on my right side , the pain is so intense. Should i see someone for this?
529142 tn?1214352259 Charles, in 2001 I was dignosed with a soft tissue mass at the brain stem/spinal cord, loose bones at c1c2 after surgery on at the back of neck and one through right side under ear, I was left in severe pain to the right side of head/face, hands, lower outside right leg and chronic nerve damage. Then in 2006 will flying to spain I suffered severe pain accross my leftside of chest.
Avatar m tn I seem to only feel neck pain in the right side and only when laying down on my right side and only when swallowing. Have seen a ENT and was told throat looked fine. I am thinking it could be an artery.
Avatar n tn I would like to thank you first for your advice. I happen to have this tender swelling on my lower left neck I don't have any pain at all and after waiting for two weeks I go to the urgent care and they test my blood and my chest(x-ray) everything comes normal so they send me directly to ER for CT scaning test and I did that, they came up with this result: There is a complex solid and systic mass in the left side of the neck, the cystic component measures 2.7 by 2.
450140 tn?1317947304 I have been checked by ENT as well. MRI of neck, brain, and spine. The biggest complaints I have are the above mentioned neck, ear pain, sweats (not hot flashes really sweats that drench me), weakness on left side of body. I am on pain meds for the pain. Yesterday at my appt. he prescribed KEPPRA as a preventitive. Also, ATEX if I feel a migraine coming on. I have gained 25 pounds since Jan 23! I figured because my GP put me on predisone at the beginning of all this. But I am still gaining.
Avatar n tn A musculoskeletal cause of the neck pain can be considered. If there is concern about a herniated disk or mass, a CT scan or MRI can be considered. A referral to an orthopedist would be a good idea. Regarding the lymph node, it can be imaged with an ultrasound to exclude other causes. If it persists, seeing a surgeon can be done to see whether a biopsy is needed. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Avatar f tn i stopped meds to see if the nausea and dizzy would stop. no such luck and now there is some realpain on bone behind ear where tumor is pain and burning. i also find my appetite is not good or taste is not great. .alot to say huh sorry . what are your thoughts? thank you for your response and care . i really appreciate it.
4699693 tn?1358122418 Hello, I had a CT during 5/2012 for a small mass on the back right preocciptal area of my neck (i.e., mid back near spine just below base of my head) the mass was 3x7x9 mm. I saw numerous doctors including 4 ENTS that refuse to biopsy the mass even though I have been experiencing neck pain and pressure in my right ear. Since then, my new general practioner looked at the CT paperwork and also found that the CT found multiple hypodensities on my thyroid.
Avatar n tn After a weeks of non-tender pain from base of my skull down my neck into the top of my shoulders and along my shoulder on the left side unrelated to movement I went to my my internist, who attributed to muscle spasm / tension and gave me a muscle relaxer that didn't help. A few days later I felt the left side of my neck and found a 'lump' that is fairly deep (can't be felt or seen superficially and requires some pressure to feel), long (about 2.5 cm long x 1.
Avatar f tn I started having headaches, daily and neck/ear/jaw pain back in May 2010 - sudden onset. . Went to an ENT, a dentist, a TMJ specialist, back to PCP. In June started getting migraines - about 1-2x a week lasting for hours. They did MRI in July and found a pineal cyst 1.2x 1.7x1.0. More tests, more meds, doctors telling me I've always had headaches, they were sinus headaches, that the cyst wasn't causing the headaches.
Avatar f tn That is the first available appointment. I am concerned about the pain radiating up my neck to my ear from this cold spot and I have a large hard lump in my throat from it. It hurts to cough too. They ordered a ultrasound and more blood work before I finally meet this doctor.
Avatar f tn I had my first thyroidectomy (removal of right lobe, isthmus, half of left lobe) 2/2013. Diagnosed Hashimoto's and pathology report came back malignant but contained within the thyroid itself. The doctor referred me to an endocrinologist who basically told me no RAI treatments because my blood work stated I had no cancer. March of 2015, my left lobe grew 3 times the size and was removed due to severe Hashi's. Pathology revealed negative malignancy this surgery.
Avatar m tn Moreover, the testing we did had a part where we would send stimuli through the bone (rather than the ear canal), to bypass the ear drum and middle ear. This is supposed to target the inner ear, and indeed it shows the same loss of hearing there, which led my doctor to prescribe Prednisone for 2 weeks (1 week @ 60 mg/day then taper 2nd week), thinking I could have an inflammation of the inner ear.
Avatar n tn everytime i swallow its like needles in my ear and throat. what can i do to reduce the swelling and get rid of the pain. i m currently taking antibiotics. but its been 5 days and the pain does not subside.
Avatar m tn Went to primary care physician, not feeling right, exhausted, crick in neck, ear pain, pain under jaw, headaches. Bloodwork normal, ultrasound found one complex cyst 2.3x 1.5x1.6. Endo said ugly should come out, 2 non diagnostic fna with fluid removal down to 1.5 cm of just solid mass. Endo says no more fna after 2 non diagnostic but watch it for 2 mo.
