Avatar n tn Hi All, I am a 23 year old female and about 3 months ago I found a hard, immovable lump behind my right ear. There is one behind my left ear too but it is much smaller. I went to my Dr and he said it was just part of my normal anatomy. I wasn't convinced. I went to see another Dr who said the same but done a blood test anyway. The results came back clear.

Does anyone know what it could possibly be?

Avatar n tn When I push in the small cavity right below my hear, and behind the most vertical part of my jaw line, i hear a shwishing noise and I feel a sensation as if someone punched me in the jaw the day before.

I also feel as if I am constantly changing elevation, because everytime I swollow I hear popping noises. This may be of importance, but my wisdom teeth are starting to tear through.

Avatar n tn I have a hard lump that is about an inch to 1.5 inches beneath my right ear right behind my jawline. It is also hard and presents with the same congestion/sinus issues that were described above. Has anyone received any answer's to what this is? My father passed from throat cancer that had spread throughout his lymph nodes and throat at the age of 48. My IM has brushed it off as sinus/allergy issues due to my age.
Avatar n tn I have recently come across a small lump in the right side of my neck located just past the halfway point of my neck and slightly towards the back (behind my ear as opposed to in front of it). The lump is not painful, hard, and I can move it slightly up and down, and it's not round more of and oval shape. I don't smoke or drink, I am however tired all the time.
Avatar n tn But her ear hasn'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 n tn I have a 7 wk old baby girl and I discovered her pea size bump when she was 2 wks right behind her left ear ,right behind where her hair line starts. It feels hard and does not move. When i feel it, it doesn't seem to hurt or bother her at all. The doctor said not to worry. We just need to keep an eye on it and she thinks it's either a swollen lymph node or cyst . I can't help but to worry.
Avatar n tn For the last 2 yrs I have also been getting painful sharp pain in my right eye. Something strange is growing behind my right ear one is almost like a blister more oval, the other a little bigger and hard they feel sore if I press it. May Dr says I may be hypothyroid what really concerns me is cancer. Is there a chance I may have it or can these symptoms be normal? I appreciate your opinion.
Avatar n tn I have a similar sharp pain behind my jaw/below my ear after drinking. Eating one pill of Vitamin C before drinking removes the symptom completely.

Avatar n tn I have a pea sized lump behind my right ear for a few months. It's starting to grow bigger. It hurts when I touch it. But mostly hurts after I shower, I feel like my head and ears are plugged with water. I get sore thoats off and on and sometimes runny nose like having a cold but it comes and goes. At night when I lie on my side I feel like theres fluid draining from my ear. Sometimes I feel my ear is plugged. Sometimes my left ear feels sore, and plugged but I have no lump on that ear.
Avatar n tn The pain starts at around the jaw line and goes to my ear and as for the circumvallate papillae I have been to an oral surgen 3 times all with no results. Anything on that?
Avatar n tn I have had 2 cervical fushions and believe that my ear pain comes from my neck injury. I hurt in my ear behind my ear and in my face....I also have severe head aches that are one sided....Good luck to you...
Avatar f tn I have this hard lump that is located about an inch below my ear near my jaw line. I was having sharp pains and discomfort around my ear so I got it checked out but never mentioned the lump just said I was having pain near my ear. The doctor diagnosed me with TMJ and gave me muscle relaxer that did no help for the pain. The pain is on and off. My dad died from malignant sarcoma soft tissue type at 36 and his mom died at 24 from hodgkins lyphoma.
Avatar n tn I am in desperate need of some advice. For the past 4 or 5 months i have experienced what i thought was a lymph node problem. I got a ct scan and numerous blood tests from sugar levels to hepatitis and thyroid tests all of which came back negative. The problem started initially when I "messed" with a cyst behind my ear.
Avatar n tn D surgery for abscess in my mouth and still not discharged due to still having a hard knot in my jaw line that is sore. Just wondering if migraines, lump, everything is tied in together since they have been worse in past few weeks? btw, the lump is not easy to feel, its only when turn head in certain, bent way and probe deeper. My migraines are mostly over left temple area but lately headaches are becoming stronger but not putting me to bed.
Avatar n tn About 4 months ago, while shaving, I noticed a lump on the right side of my neck, behind the hinge of the jaw under the ear. Not painful, no other symptoms. After 2 weeks I talked with a friend who is an MD, he said to watch it for another couple months. A week after that I had a cold for 2-3 days, which developed into a slightly productive cough which lingered for 3 weeks, then went away. The lump would fluctuate during the day, more noticeable in AM, much less so in PM.
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.
