Avatar n tn Worried about this lump behind my ear
Avatar n tn I have also discovered a lump in my neck right behind my ear and by my jaw line. It doesn't move and it isn't painful but I'm very concerned about it. I've been gaining weight and have been extremely fatigued. I just moved to Florida and don't have a doctor yet. Do you think I should have it checked at an urgent care or hospital? Does anyone know what it could possibly be?

Avatar f tn Hi, I noticed a couple weeks ago that there was a small rice-like bump behind my ear lobe. I kept massaging it hoping it would spread and go away, but it got a little bigger and split into two-conjoining bumps. It doesn't hurt, but if I squeeze it, it is like a mixture of soft tissue and cartilage that can shift slightly. Just yesterday I suddenly got a pain in my ear that hurts when I chew or move my jaw.

Avatar f tn hi! so i just recently found out that i have this lump behind my ear across the jawline. i found this lump when i was trying to unlock my earring and then i felt something behind my ear. it was not visible but when i touch it you can feel that there is a lump or something. if i put pressure on it i feel nothing. after that i started to feel some pain from my right ear, where the lump is, and when i try to move my jaw i feel like half of my right face is in pain. i really dont know what to do..
Avatar f tn lump noticed on jaw centrally located between chin and hinge. Pain throbbing and radiating between inner ear, right temple and right jaw.
Avatar f tn Now, a week later, the armpit pain is gone, and both the lumps behind my ear and under my jaw are virtually indecipherable... What I was wondering is a) what thismay be symptomatic of, and b) is it possible that the armpit ache might have been caused by my excessive fiddling with the lumps, which I believe to be lymph nodes, behind my ear/under my jaw? as in some kind of reaction in my lymphatic system to the interference?
Avatar f tn It is not possible to do that on net. The various possibilities of a lump behind the ear on the jaw could be due to Lump behind the ear could be folliculitis (hair follicle infection, chances less as this has been for so long), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
Avatar n tn t bothered her but last week she did have a little drainage in the ear on the same side.Now the lump feels like it is about the size of a Pinto bean.Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn Not affecting eye sight or any symtoms linked to it. Found softish non moveable lump behind ear feels like its attached to jaw bone. But if i open mouth or turn head lump disapears.... Most symtoms popped up after i found that lump behind ear i was thinking most of my symtoms could be caused by anxiety and depression because i had no problems before i found it ... If it is cancer i wont get treated by kemo or radiation i will posibly do surgery...
Avatar m tn This little lump behind my right ear is now going down my shoulder and getting worse. I've been to the DR. and had numerous tests, such as the MRI,Ex Ray,ultra sound and they say its nothing. I also have trouble sleeping on my side.
Avatar n tn my friend awoke at 2 am and felt a lump at his jaw line below the ear. On discovery it felt sore when touched, by that evening all tenderness was gone and the lump was as big as a silver dollar. I palpaped it. It was hard and attached on the back side.

1748247 tn?1311799602 My take on this is that what ever this lump or knot is behind my ear has nothing to do w/any salivatery gland, because the lump is behind the ear and not in my mouth. As to the swelling I feel that its to the lump behind my hear that is causing my jaw muscle and neck muscle to swell, as a defense to the lump behind my ear. I am also feeling numbness in my L. side of my face, lip and arm which she said is a nuero issue.

Avatar n tn it also felt swollen when i tried to eat as if it was inflamed 10 days ago I got swelling under the left ear which runs along the jaw line and at the beginning it also felt like the area next to my ear at the top of my cheek was inflamed which has now gone down but the gland which runs down my jaw line is still inflated, although I cant feel any physical lump its feels more an inflamation.
