Lump behind both ears

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind both ears


Avatar f tn I have had a hard pretty large lump behind both of my ears for awhile now. They do not hurt when touched but sometimes I get headaches and when working out it feels like a lot of pressure is pushing on the lumps. There is no discoloration but the lumps are visible because of their size. I am nervous because they have not gone away, do I need to go see a doctor? I am currently away at school and the doctors out here are horrible! thats why I have not seen a ENT or doctor yet.
Avatar m tn My son has had a lump behind his ear ever since he was a baby. I asked the doctor about it when he was younger and he did not seem concerned. He is 17 now and still has a lump there. Should I be concerned?
795097 tn?1237220795 My mom and I have both had a lump behind our ears and it was from our earrings. I would talk to you doctor though if you are still worried to ease your mind.
1389878 tn?1279854755 this is actually for my husband, he has recently noticed a hard lump behind his ear and has grown to be very worried about it. He actually has lumps on both sides behind his ears but his left side has grown enough for him to take notice in it, it is hard and does not move around, is not tender to the touch nor is it red or irritated in any way on the outside. He says that it doesn't cause him any constant pain but every once in awhile he will get little sharp pains where the lump is.
Avatar n tn I was taking 1000 but ran out and bought the wrong one so I thought probably be ok just give me more energy. Well all of a sudden I now have a small lump behind both ears (I guess on the bone), back right side of skull, and 1 back of neck which is almost gone. Just curious if it's because of the increase of b12 or what? I'm not sick nor have I been in like 3 or 4 weeks, never noticed them before. Just seems like they're popping out everywhere??
Avatar n tn a few days ago my co-workers noticed a bump behind my both ears. one told me that it could be lymph nodes so i looked it up but it didn't say anything about lymph nodes being behind your ears. i just looked in the mirror and i saw it myself. it looks like swellings behind my ears. as long as i know myself i always had that but it never bother me but if not What could that possibly be?
Avatar f tn Hi im 26 and female. Behind both my ears about half way up my head I can feel a small lump 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.
Avatar f tn Painless lump behind the ear could be Lump behind the ear could be folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). Watch the lump. Do not touch everyday but once in 10-15 days. If the lump increases in size, becomes painful, changes color, bleeds, changes shape or consistency or more similar lumps appear then consult a doctor. Hope this helps.

Avatar n tn After that I found another one a couple more years later on my upper left leg, just above the knee cap. Most recently (6 months ago)I discoverd a hard lump form right behind my right ear followed by a smaller one forming behind my left ear. I also have been wakeing up with soaked hair line and sweaty body, not too bad but night sweats altogether. Then I noticed another lump form on my scalp above my face on my hairline, small but hard and present.
Avatar n tn Lumps that are painless behind the ears are not uncommon. Sebaceous cysts is one which is a build up of oil and skin tissue over time. Lipoma is another which is a fatty cyst. Neither are serious. I would guess it is one of these two things. See your doctor to confirm.
Avatar n tn I have a lump behind my right ear that is rather larger than the normal one I have behind the left. I have been felling dizzy for about a week, and my balance is off. What should I do.
868575 tn?1250191618 Hi, Please have a surgeon evaluate the hard, growing, lump behind behind your ear. About your other conditions, please continue to be under follow-up for the GI and neurological symptoms. Please post additional questions if you need more specific advise. All the best, and God Bless!
288415 tn?1231634102 But for the past year or two I've had EXTREMELY itchy ears. Both of my inner ears get these irresistible itches. I use qtips all the time and I know that's so horrible but they're the only things that help me relieve the itches.I wake up in the middle of the night with the most crazy itches and it drives me insane! I hate being in public and getting ear itches because there's nothing I can do. I usually just close my ear & wait for it to go away but that's hard.
Avatar f tn If there is some specie, and if it is oozing or painful or red—then yes you have infection. Otherwise—some space remains which gets filled by nail later. Lump behind the ear which is hard and painful could be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), an infected cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue).
Avatar f tn Hi im a 27 yr old female, and i have a lump on both sides of my neck, under the ears and behind the jaw. they are painless and quite hard. i think they have been there for a very long time but think they have got bigger, the one on the left seems bigger than the right. i can only feel them, they are not so big you can see them and i can feel them much better when looking the other way so my neck is stretched. no other symptoms. im a smoker.
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 f tn You are probably having pressure symptoms from lump behind the ear. It is difficult to comment without examination. Lump behind the ear could be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue).
Avatar n tn I am and have been having the same issues. The hard painful lumps are behind both of my ears, my neck feels stiff and hurts, my throat feels extremely swollen and is difficult to touch my chin to my chest. One ear usually at a time will hurt, turn bright red and get really hot.The worst is prolly this ongoing headache though which seems to really only be behind my ears and the back of my head.
Avatar n tn I have this bone problem behind both ears. Doctor said could be mastoiditis so why don't you Google that and see if your son needs to see his doc.
Avatar n tn The lymph node thus swelled in response to the infection. The other possibility is that both the swellings are lymph nodes. Swollen lymphnodes behind your ears could be due to chest infection, tonsillitis or pharyngitis, dandruff, or infection of ear. A fine needle biopsy of a CT scan can tell for sure what the lump is. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn For almost 3 weeks now I've been experiencing symptoms of blurry vision, imbalance (when I walk or turn my head I feel like I'm on a boat, things in my vision are rocky, and move more than they should), and pressure behind my right eye, on the inside corner especially. From time to time I have neck pain on the right side, especially at the base of the skull, but unlike the other symptoms this neck pain is not constant.
Avatar n tn Last week I started getting the full blown behind the ears yellow discharge and scales. I can't take it. I am at a loss. I have found that behind the ears and most of what is posted here is related to Seborrhoeic Excema. People with this have a reduced resistance to yeast, which explains the beer offsets for some. It's not contagious or related to diet, but can be worsened by certain yeast present in the system. I am going to try probiotics today.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I'm able to put up with my PET for the most part, as it comes and goes. If it's in both ears at the same time, then it's pretty awful, but that is usually not the case. That happens once in a great while. Just recently I've been trying the "drink 3 glasses of water" tip that I read above and I think it works.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was reading and some of the others here that seem to have my same problem. I have sharp pains behind my ears and even above. I decided to google this problem and it seems there are hundreds if not thousands with this problem. I am a 30yr old male and am healthy outside of back pain. So I don't quite understand what this could be. I do however have scoliosis and Sherman's disease. Could this somehow be connected? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Took son, 15 years old ,to Dr yesterday for his check up and he he has a one painless lump behind ear bone left side about 1" maybe slight less, they said it was lymph node, his blood pressure was 85/55 and his pulse was 83. Said his blood pressure was normal He has lost weight , 4lbs and is complaining of being chronic tired. Sleeping 8 hours a day, trying to gain weight but can't, eating healthy.
Avatar n tn I was born with a lump behind both of my ears, and they both started out as about the size of a grain of rice. Now, at age 18, the left one is almost unnoticeable but the right one has grown in size over the years and is fairly big, much much bigger than a couple of grains of rice. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I have a 4 month old boy and found a little lump behind his left ear. I took him to the doctor and he said not to worry because he thought it was just where his head is growing together, but to keep an eye on it. Any lump scares me, but it's good to know that it isn't so uncommon for babies to have lumps on their heads.
Avatar m tn Both doctors said it was not a lymph node which is positive but there is still a lump and I guess any unexplained lump is a worry. No other symptoms though.
