Lump behind ear loss of hearing

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind ear loss of hearing


Avatar f tn The common causes are enlarged lymph nodes, sebaceous cysts and mastoididtis.One of the most worrisome cause of a lump behind ear is cancer. Pain relievers, antibiotics and antiviral medication help treat and relieve the symptoms of swollen lymph nodes. Sebaceous cysts occur due to swollen hair follicles or skin trauma.Mastoiditis will be accompanied with fever, ear pain, hearing loss and ear redness. These are only a few possibilities.
Avatar n tn thanks for all your help with my lump behind my ear. i read marjority of everyones lymph nodes situations and mines is somewhat just the same. i just realized mines today the funny thing is mainly everyone stated it was on the right side. well all i can say is that i will keep it clean and my hands off of it so it can go away.
Avatar n tn I dont know anatomy well enough to tell you exactly where, but if you start at your chin and follow the bone at the base of your cheek up to the bottom of your ear, theres this hard lump. On my left ear, in the same spot, theres nothing - its just a fleshy soft spot. I dont know if the two are related. I went to see a doctor about it, they did some tests, found nothing really wrong, and basically told me if it gets really bad come back. Any ideas what it might be?
Avatar n tn The next couple days he conplained of pain and slight loss of hearing. Things sounded muffled in the ear he got hit. That healed in a few days. Now 2 weeks later he has a marble sized lump that he says is very painful and to me feels hard. Any ideas of what is going on? he doesnt want to go to the drs.
868575 tn?1250191618 Recently noticed it is a little larger, and irritating or irritated by my hearing BTE hearing aids. I can not wear headbands, my hearing aid or anything behind my ear because of it. I wanted to have the lump removed. It is about 4cm in diameter, very hard, normally painless, and immobile. A doctor a year ago suggested it was just a cyst and nothing to bother with. I have also been very ill for 3 years without an explination yet.
Avatar n tn If there is headache associated with redness behind the ear alongwith tenderness on touching the bone behind the ear it could be mastoiditis(inflammation of bone behind the ear)or inflamed lymph node. Inflammation of the external ear or otitis externa is possible if the ear is swollen and hurts on pulling. This could be a occipital migraine headache, tension headaches, headache due to nerve compression in the cervical spinal cord.
Avatar m tn Jimbojimbo, my dizziness is only very slight, and I was always prone to low tensions attacks, so I never figured out they could be connected. My symptoms are similar to yours, but along with headaches, which I can only describe as a painfull cold tension feeling at first on what seems the right nerves for a few minutes and then a normal headache covering all the right and the back of the head, it takes a paracetamol 1 gr to fall asleep, and nausea.
1437764 tn?1296247084 A small hole is often drilled in the skull and a small thin tube is passed into a ventricle of the brain and another behind the ear to the abdomen or chest. A valve is placed also beneath the skin behind the ear and attached to both catheters. When extra pressure builds up around the brain, the valve opens, and excess fluid drains out of it into the abdomen or chest area, decreasing the intracranial pressure. Antibiotics and pain medication may be given after.
Avatar m tn i then visited the ENT and had all testing done to measure pressure, ear function, check for infection and hearing loss. my tests were completely normal with excellent hearing and no signs of infection or pressure behind the ear drum. but i feel awful . i cant sleep because of the pain and pressure. i also have no appetite. the only thing the ENT noticed was a swollen lymph node infront of the right ear. it was right near the connection of the upper and lower jaw..

When I touch is sensitive..and a little sore...but no othe rpain associated with it. is this something I need to be concerned about? please advise....
Avatar m tn I don't have hearing loss. There is no redness behind my ear. No lump. No nothing, it's just the HORRIBLE pain, I have no other symptoms.
Avatar n tn I attributed this to sleeping on that side and tucking my hair behind my ear. When I found a lump right behind my ear lope but on my neck, that was large and visible, I became worried and went to the doc. The day before my appoint, poof my ear was completely back to normal. Doc couldnt tell anything said might have been a severe ear infection and come back if it returns. Just over a week later it returned, super itchy, hot and lumpy, including lump behind the lobe.

4542756 tn?1356193948 I have 3 cats that have had them, and another that formed one today, (all these cats are from the same litter, I believe my issue is hereditary for my babies) I've let all heal on their own. They are left with "cauliflower ear" where their ear looks crumpled up, but no loss of hearing or any other issues.
Avatar n tn Pulsatile tinnitis can be a sign of a conductive hearing loss, or a jugular tumoralis (sp). (basically a tumur near the jugular vein) Cure, if it is a conductive hearing loss there is usually a simple cure. If it is a tumor... that is more complicated. Find an ENT that staffs an audiologist and get a thorough hearing evaluation. The results will help to determine the root cause of what is going on.
149081 tn?1242401432 Today, my Thyroid levels show normal. Since the surgery, I have had increasing hearing loss. in the left ear only. The tympanic membrane has no movement. I often have a feeling of fullness and pressure. This past summer I suffered from severe vertigo which has since disappeared. I also get this small stabbing pain and tickle in this ear as well. All these symptoms are the same as other posters, however, what caught my attention is the symptom of neck pain.
Avatar f tn My problem in the left side of my head has come back after being silent for a short time in summer. I have pain sometimes under the ear, sometimes in or behind the ear. Temple pain has not occurred recently. The pain comes most often in early morning hours. I had also some congestion up in my nose, when I was in bed. Very viscous postnasal drip has slightly increeased. I have had postnasal drip for more than ten years. In the autumn I have had red flecks in mouth mucosa and sticky saliva.
Avatar f tn I got a second opinion from another ENT. So glad I did because he was able to see tons of fluid behind my ear, and sent me to the Audiologist in the office there. They tested my hearing, it was terrible. I had some sort of anomaly on the tempanography test and neither the ENT or audiologist could explain it... I also had an endoscopy and the doc saw that I had enlarged adenoids, which could be causing some issues.
Avatar f tn I have had a very hard lump on the right side of my abdomen that I have noticed twice now. The first time was about a month ago, and I am not sure if it has been there this whole time, because I didn't think much about it at that time, and I can only feel it when I am laying down on my left side. The second time I noticed it was on the night of the 21st, and the lump has not moved or changed in size since that night.
Avatar n tn I have a thumping sound in my left ear which is random, it comes and goes but I have had a bit of pain behind my ear and also I quite often have to hold my nose and blow and my ears squeek and then I can hear properlt again, any clues,
Avatar n tn for any fluid/infection in the sinuses or mastoid cells. 99.9% of us have eustachian tubes in back of throat above the palate, directly behind the nose where it connects to middle ear. Reason why nose sprays are used to open & pop ear. They aren't located behind your ears. You may have a problem w/ what they call mastoid air cells that can get inflammed or infection. If tender or swollen tissue behind ear, go back to ENT. May need antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Three or four months after that I found lumps in my neck, my groin, and behind my ear. My hearing issues had subsided somewhat but It started to feel like I was listening to everything underwater. (With added ringing) Then I decided to smoke some marijuana, and I had the worst experience of my life. (I'm not a chronic drug user) I started passing out, having panic attacks, felt like there was water dripping down my head and I couldn't remember who I was or where I was.
Avatar n tn Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym? I know a tumor or something like that would have showed on MRI.
Avatar n tn we're talking about the fluid filled cochlea of the inner ear. Not the ear drum, middle ear area, eustacian tube, or sinus. The cochlea has all the "little hairs" that account for our range of hearing and which send signals directly to the auditory nerve to be sent and interpreted by our brain as sound. This is an area that can neither be helped by surgery or drugs.
Avatar m tn The combination of recurrent dizziness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), fluccuating hearing loss and a persistent feeling of fullness in the ears is characteristic of an inner ear disorder called Meniere's Disease. All that said, Recurrent bouts of dizziness could certainly be a presentation of MS. I highly recommend seeing a Neuro-Otologist. An ENG and Computerized Posturography can help delineate whether the dizziness is central (brainstem) or peripheral (inner ear).
Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma of the spleen and had it removed in emergency surgery in August 2007. I took him through chemo and he survived 6 months following the surgery. On his last day, he was rebounding following a traumatic night a few days earlier vomiting and collapsing. He couldn't get up the next day but was more responsive the following. Although fatigued, he could walk the day after that and even began playing with his toys. So he was recovering.
Avatar n tn I have continued having ear problems such as pain, fluid running out, sometimes small amts of blood. I noticed lately I have a pea sized lump behind it on the right . I also have pain on the right side of my headand temple area. The doc looked at the inside, but didn't see anything wrong . what do you think?
