Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind my ear


Avatar n tn I notice about a week ago this lump behind my ear. I left it alone until the other day. I showed my mom and she said its probably a pimple. So me being me I have to perform surgery on any zit lol i squeezed this lump and poked it with a pin thinking it would pop and my troubles would be over. This did not work at all. It did not pop and it was even more red and irritated. I looked it up on the internet and all the topics say it either a swollen glad or a tumor.
Avatar n tn I have a small lump growing behind my ear. I have to say Im a bit concerned. Its bigger than a pea and smaller than a walnut, maybe the size of a small marble. Its feels rather sore and warm which makes me think its some type of pus filled internal skin infection. Well, I hope its not a tumor. The problem here is I have no health insurance and practically no money. So Im not really sure what to do.
Avatar f tn Last night I found a good sized lump behind my left ear, right above that flap of fat that you get you put earrings in. It's hard and hurts when I push on it. I would have had my mom look at it but it was midnight and she was asleep. When I got up this morning to have her look at it she was gone. Do I have cancer, or could this be and allergic reaction to something? The lump/bump is under my skin, which means it's probably not a sist, right?

Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old male. I have had a hard lump behind my right ear for years least 4 or 5. It feels like part of my skull but it is not on the left side of my head so i know that it's not. I asked my doctor about it when i was younger and he said it was a swollen lymph node and should go away at some point. It never did, however, it also never caused me any discomfort so i never got it looked at again.
804382 tn?1237994213 About a year ago I noticed a small hard unmoveable lump behind my right ear.. (between my ear and my hair line of my neck) I wasn't to worried about it until about two weeks ago when my wife was able to SEE IT. I haven't been touching it a whole lot cause I figured it was probably a lymph node, and I didn't want to irratate it. It doesn't hurt and it is now about the size of a nickel.... can someone please give me an idea what is going on?

Avatar f tn I developed a small hard lump behind my left ear almost 12 years ago. At the time we went to the doctors and they told me it was just a cyst and to come back if it got larger and or painful.

Avatar n tn Hello, I have had a lump behind my right ear for approximately 18 months now and it has been progressively getting bigger. It started with pain in the area behind the ear, along the jawline and suddenly I discovered a tiny lump of about 1mm diameter. Over the last 18 months, this lump has grown to almost 18mm diameter.(less than 1inch) i have had several ultrasounds done which all came back as a possibility of a slow growing sebaseous cyst.
