Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind ear sore throat

Avatar n tn I have developed a sore throat on my right side, my ear on this side also hurts. There is no sign of tonsillitis, however, when I look into my throat just behind my right tonsil there is a red lump. The lump is flesh colored, should I be worried about this or is it just a symptom of fall allergies??
Avatar f tn About 8 days ago she went to the doctor with strep-throat. Now today I noticed she has a lump behind her right ear, should I be concerned? I read it could just be her body fighting the infection. Should I get her to the doctor or should I just keep an eye on the lump for a few days? She is 8 years old.
Avatar m tn Hi. I've had what appears to be a boil behind my right ear lobe. It sore, warm and slightly itchy. What worries me is right below it is sore, too...in my right side neck area. The last few days that area also feels like it is getting a hard lump under my skin, but this lump is not sore,warm like the boil behind my ear. My right side upper shoulder/neck is also sore. When I turn my head right it is sore. I'm not really sure what this all means. Do you think I should go to the doctor?
2133874 tn?1335812339 I just thought it was from my glasses but Friday morning I had a big lump behind my ear. it was about 2 inches long and kind of bean shaped. At the base of it, it was softer but sore if i rubbed it and the top of it was harder but didn't hurt at all. It also was a little itchy. We had a big function at our church this weekend that we were very involved in so i couldn't get it checked out. Saturday it was maybe slightly worse and Sunday I thought the swelling was less.
Avatar f tn Hiya, I've had a lump behind my left ear for a about 3-4 weeks now.. It's small & hard & it isn't sore or tender at all.. I had a cold about 3 weeks ago so I presumed it was something to do with that, & my Dr. said it was when I went to see him, however, my cold has been & gone & all that's left is a sore throat.. But it isn't sore all the time, just at night when I'm sleeping?
Avatar n tn I suddenly have a lump that showed up on the my right ear just below the ear lobe, its small but very painful to touch and is very hard. It moves when you touch it and it has caused my ear a slight swelling. It's not red or anything and the ear lobe doesn't hurt when it's touch, if anyone has some kinda of info on what it could be please email me at ***@****.
Avatar n tn I had a lump behind my ear when I was a teen. It was from mono. Do you have a sore throat or anything?
Avatar n tn 2 days ago i noticed a lump behind my ear (not on my ear but on the skull part) that is hard.It doesn't seem to have gone down over these two days. I have been also been having very strong and painful headaches for 5 days now that don't seem to go away. The lump is not painful to touch from the top but if I press it from the underside then it does seem to hurt a little. I was just wondering what it could be and whether i need to worry or not.
Avatar f tn Hi there....I'm new to this post and was wondering...I found a lump behind my 4-year old son's ear....last week he had a sore throat in addition to him saying that a bug bit him in that same spot. It was red and swollen a week ago, now it's just a pea-sized bump. Since then he's had no symptoms of being sick, but the bump is still there.....is that a lymph node and are they reactive? I keep touching it to see if it's getting bigger.
Avatar n tn Hi, A lump behind the ear could be due to throat infection, insect bite, accidental trauma to the site, ear infection , etc. Lymph nodes in the region are known as post auricular lymph nodes and can enlarge secondary to infection, inflammation, etc. You could try some warm compresses at the site, warm saline gargles for his sore throat and some oral antihistamine medications for the swelling. This could be mastoiditis, cervical lymphadenopathy or parotitis.
Avatar n tn Worried about this lump behind my ear
Avatar f tn I have a painful lump behind my ear. Once in a while I will get a throbbing pain that feels like someone is pushing on my pressure point. That hurts so bad, it makes my vision blurry. Its only on my left side though. I also can hear something in my ear. It sounds like the beating of my heart. Its very annoying when everything is quiet, because that is all I can hear. I was recently running a fever and had a sore throat. Please someone help me find answers.
Avatar n tn my 2 year old son has a hard lump on his head behind his left ear. We did notice this weekend (before we noticed this lump) a HUGE raised , red, insect bite on his scalp on the same side of his head as the lump- which definitely could have been infected. my husband insists this is a swollen gland due to the insect bite. he also has been fighting off a cold for over a week now. but he it otherwise fine- normal energy, appetite, no fever and generally healthy seeming.

Avatar f tn I have a hard non-movable lump behind my left ear. It is not sensitive to the touch, but it does hurt. I haven't felt well in about a month. I feel extremely tired and ill feeling with a slight sore throat. I do have stuffy sinuses. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Yesterday I noticed a sore hard lump on the right side of my head above my ear in my hair. Today my right occipital lymph node and the lymph node behind my ear are swollen and painful and the lump turned into a white head or blister. Could it be a spider bite? Or just a really nasty pimple? I am hoping its not a staph infection. There is only bump and I have no fever.

Avatar n tn The only change I have made in my daily activities. Yesterday I noticed a few knots on my head, lump behind my ear and today a lump on the side of my neck. Have had a bad headache for the past two days and dont know if it could be from the medicine or what. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn For the past year I have had a sore, inflammed throat only on my right side of my face. A couple of years ago I had strep. I cannot get this sore throat and ear pain to go away and have been on every kind of antbiotics. Last april I got a yellowish lump on the tonsil. Dr said it is tonsil tissure, Just recently I got on at the back of my throat and now another higher on the tonsil. I had a tonsil stone come out about a week ago. My face is sore from behind my ear to under my chin.
Avatar n tn I have had headaches for 4 months straight. The lump feels like my throat is about halfway open right behind my adams apple. I am worried that it may be throat cancer. Does anyone have any ideas?
