Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind ear purple


Avatar n tn ive had a lump behind my ear for about 2 months now it recently has grown in size and is all red and purple and sore
1288586 tn?1271907761 but now it has swollen up and hurts a lot on and around the lump and i am having pain in my ear canal also. the lump is a little bigger then a pea. i can't see it, since it's along the bone behind my ear, so my fiance had a look at it and says it's red and looks infected. i also have a lump on the left side of my pelvis, which is also red and sore and my fiance says its starting to go purple.
Avatar n tn i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/lump behind her ear on the bone part (not on the ear itself). i touched it and it hurts. it's about as big as an eraser on top of a pencil or a pea. it is not red or anything (skin color). i get very worried about these kind of things and will give her dr. a call but in the mean time i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what it may be? like i said, i am worried.

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 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.

Mine is like a purple lump, same size as a pea but its on top of the skin (if that makes sence) its not a huge lump it just sticks right out of the skin?? i get them all the time and they are horrible! i usually cover them with plasters and hope for them to go away.. does anyone have any idea what they are actually called???

Avatar n tn I am now 27 yrs old. I just had a recurrent infection. It usually forms an abscess behind my ear cos the pit was sewn shut by the Dr during the first surgery.This last episode was the last straw. Went to my ENT Dr's office to schedule 2nd surgery on monday. Surgery was supposed to be for tmro but cos abscess poped today. Dr said we have to cancel surgery till further notice. Said since its been recurring for many years. It will be hard to find all the tracts due to scar tissue.
Avatar n tn I have a huge boil(or at least appear to look that way) on the outside of my ear. I noticed it about 2 months ago. Where then it hadn't surfaced yet. I could feel a lump under the skin.

Avatar f tn I do not smoke so this seems odd, I have lines around my eyes and a few small ones on my forehead when I smile. I have a lump behind my ear (where the pituitary gland is) that has been there since I was like 12. I thought it was nothing, though it seems to have been growing slowly, as through the years it seems to have gotten bigger. When I touch it, it doesn't hurt. Though I can feel it starting from behind the top part of my ear, to the bottom of my jaw.
5457294 tn?1368274510 I contacted her doctor who set up an appointment for Deleilah with a dermatologist for Thursday (5-9) Wednesday (5-8) she woke up with two lumps on her head. One was right on top of her head the other was behind her right ear. Hot to the touch - also very painful. She felt like something was pulling her hair. Thursday (5-9) At the dermatologist a lump appeared on the top of her left hand. She was complaining she couldn't straighten her left arm. By the time we left her elbow was twice the size.
288415 tn?1231634102 Av, its horrible. Mine has been going on for three years. The only benefit is that I do not hear my husband's snoring. I lay down and they immediately clog. I did used to get really nasty smelling crud out of them every morning. I have had times when my jaw is so sore, or my ear, or below my ear. This has been such a pain in "the ear" for me. Richt now the itchiness is truly driving me nuts.

Avatar f tn I think I have the H thyroid autoimmune disease (can't spell it - my Japanese not that great) I'm fearing HL at this time - lump behind my ear...
Avatar n tn I am a 44 year old man and I have been having right side throat/neck pain when swallowing that radiates to my right ear. Right ear pain, pain at the base of my skull behind my right ear and all sorts of neurological issues in my head, face and neck. All right-sided. Even blurry vision in my right eye that comes and goes. It doesn't make sense at all. I saw an ENT in December '08 and again one month later about the ear pain and throat pain. Scoped me both times and sent me on my way.
132578 tn?1189759437 I honestly dont know how I would deal with this disease without this forum. Who cares why we have time , just thanks for being there.
Avatar n tn I had a brain MRI in April of this year, everything was normal, the doc did this because of the facial tingling that I have on the left side of my face. I do have jaw stiffness, and ear pain on that side, but no cracking or popping noise, I don't know if I grind my teeth at night or not, I know that my husband and son do all the time, I probably don't get enough sleep to grind my teeth, from them keeping me up. LOL!!!
136849 tn?1327325110 I went to a female gyne in 2005 for an annual check and asked to have a ct about a hard lump behind my belly button. She said it was probably a hernia. 2nd opinion doc said 1st doc probably right. I still fight that tumor today. Not a hernia. Also mad that having cancer can bankrupt a family. I'm done ranting.
Avatar n tn I read your story with interest. As a child I suffered from chronic ear infections and underwent 4 surgeries. As an adult, I've suffered from chronic sinusitis for several years. In 2004 I had my right maxillary sinus cleaned out only after I insisted. I am an RN and yes my x-rays were "fine" but my symptoms were not. I had severe pain and pressure into my teeth along with mild dizzyness, and severe post-nasal drip. After that surgery, the pain in my right maxillary was eliminated...
Avatar m tn it was like someone dimming the lights, and throwing me off a building, more of a Falling then spinning (Not vertigo) This relapse / attack, has been 2 weeks of hell, the numbness in my face I can feel all the way deep, from my neck, to in behind my ocular socket, my leg completely numb, center of my back is numb, Arm / pins n' Needles, elbow joint VERY tender, vision distorted, but the brain fog.. Ugh, it's overwhelming.
Avatar m tn "I don't think you started out with stomach problems, nor did I , but I think jimjim I correct? " --------- I started out with ear pressure, then ear aches, then swallowing problems, lump in my throat (globus), sore throats, hoarseness, sinus pressure, headaches and generally feeling lousy from the neck up. I did have some stomach problems but it turned out most of the stomach problems were related to the the double Aciphex (PPI) that I took for a couple of months.
Avatar f tn For about the past 2 years, I've been experiencing bruises that are dark purple and then seem to "bleach out" after a couple days or so. At about that same time, the intense itching occurs with a red bumpy raised rash that takes up the exact size/shape of the original bruise. It seems that once I start scratching it at all, the more intense the itching becomes. In February of 2007, I fell with all my weight on my left knee in a kneeling position.
