Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind cartilage piercing


Avatar n tn hello okay so i had this hard lump behind my ear that was painless and movable. I had it for a couple months but since i had just gotten my ear pierced and it got infected i thought maybe it was a swollen gland due to the infection in the piercing, so I took it out. It went down almost completely for about a week. and then i got like a zit inside my ear, and the lump is back. its really hard but its movable. I have a Dr. appt. this thursday but im just looking for some guidance.

Avatar n tn Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It causes sharp pain in the costosternal joint — where your ribs and breastbone are joined by rubbery cartilage. Pain caused by costochondritis may mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions. Costochondritis is the most common cause of chest pain originating in the chest wall. It occurs most often in women and people over age 40.
Avatar n tn I have also had a fever of about 101 that never seems to exceed that, but comes and goes as well. My PCP asked about the eyebrow piercing on the right side of my face and I informed her it was made of titanium. She then concluded that it's probably not the issue (being that I hadn't had any issues with infection at the site of the piercing). She's the only person that brought it up, and now it's got me thinking.
Avatar n tn for those with lower back and hip pain it could simply be that your hips are misaligned, which kind of does depend on the severity of pain. It could also be damaged cartilage in the affected, which i had/have and with that i sat awkwardly which caused lower back pain. I'm 25, mother of 2 and slowly losing the will to live like most others as my left hip, which was operated on for a labral tear.
Avatar m tn After the tests came back, they said I had a hernia from my stomach that protruded through the diaphragm into the chest cavity behind my heart and was pressing on a nerve around my heart and that was what was causing my pain. All I know is that every time I have a gas problem, I get that pain again in the upper left side of my chest. It usually moves to my left arm then around to my upper back. It makes it very hard to sleep.
Avatar n tn I found a round area about the size of a half dollar behind my ear that was red with blisters. My first symptom was a stiff, swollen neck. I was actually relieved when the doctor said he thought it was shingles. He prescribed two types of antibiotics and a pain reliever. The outbreak never got any bigger on the outside, but I have been itching all over my entire body. I don't know that this isn't my mind messing with me, but I've been taking benedril (sp?) and it seems to help.
