524172 tn?1212297566 my sister, whos 8, showed me this lump behind the ear a couple weeks ago, little couldnt see it, could only feel it to know it was there. i said it was nothing, but to just watch it to see if it does anything. 3 weeks later its gotten so big its popping out of her head not by inches but a 1/8 of a cm. im thinking cancer but i don't no exactly. i have been looking online and then i found this web site and thought i would try it. can you please help.
Avatar n tn I went to see a cranial osteopath earlier this evening with my eight week old son. The osteopath pointed out a lump, located between my son's skull and the fold of his neck (behind his ear). I am very worried as I had not noticed it before. It seems to move slightly but feels hard. It is approximately 5mm in terms of size. What is it and what should I do?
Avatar f tn Hi - I wrote in about my son's lump behind his ear. The doctor was not concerned at all - said it was probably inflammation - he went on Augmentin for two weeks and it went down, however, he got a ton of mosquito bites on his head, neck and face this past weekend, and I noticed another swollen lymph node - pea sized above the original one. Do bug bites harbor cause lymph nodes to swell? He has no other symptoms - like fever or lethargy or weight loss.
Avatar m tn My little boy has had a bump behind his right ear from birth. It was tiny at first, and the health visitor said she was definitely not concerned, it was just a fat lump. He is now 6 years old, perfectly healthy, but I notice, and he does too, that it's still there and slightly bigger, more like a small marble now - he says he can move it around, but it starts to hurt when he does - it is on the bone behind the ear. He calls it his 'baby bump'.

Avatar f tn About a year ago i woke up with a burning lump behind my left ear found a lump. Now let me add that i had wore some cheap earrings. But it has been almost a year since. The burning pain would shoot down my neck and into my breast that happened off and on for months and finally quite. i had itching all over and mostly on the lump. now the itching on the lump doesn't happen as often. Now the lump Burns like every 3/4 days. When i push on it it seems to flatten out but returns within hours.
Avatar n tn s kind of scaring me. I have a lump behind my right ear that is rather larger than the normal one I have behind the left. I have been felling dizzy for about a week, and my balance is off. What should I do.
Avatar f tn I am worried about the lump behind my ear which ive discovered since year 1986. I am now 53 years old and Ive consulted doctors about this. They said its a parotid gland tumor and is not cancerous. When i look at the internet about the picture of the parotid gland it is located in front of the ear and not at the back. Please clarify me on this. The lump is 2 cms in diameter. In 1986, it was a size of a small pea and is still flat. It is located behid the lower back of my left ear.

Avatar m tn Hey everyone, I am hoping you can help me figure out what this lump is behind my ear is. Not literally on my ear, but when you feel behind your ear, the bony part. about an inch or 1.5 inches away from my ear there is a painless lump (circular) about the size of a blueberry. It is difficult to tell if it is hard or squishy so I can't really say. All I can say is that it has been there for about a month maybe more. Has not grown is size that ive noticed.
Avatar f tn I have a small pea sized lump on where my ear hits my head right before the lobe starts hurts on surface, but is hard and does not move. Do I have cancer or what is it???
Avatar m tn Well about 5 years ago maybe more at the age of 9 I found a lump behind my right ear it was movable and was absolutely painless I forgot about it and didn't tell anybody because I was so young.
Avatar n tn recently I went to the doc. because I have notice a marble sice lump behind my ear and I also have pain that starts at the neck and ends at the lump please help wiith any info pertaining my situation.
Avatar n tn I have a lump underneath my skin behind my ear it doesnt move and over the last 2 years it has gotten bigger. I went to the docter about 2 years ago and he said there was nothing to worry about. Now I am getting bad headaches just on the side that the lump is on which is the left side. should I go back to the doc?
Avatar n tn He did not need a shunt and has met all of his milestones up to this time. I recently discovered a lump on his scalp behind his left ear. The lump flattens when you press on it and inflates when you let go. It is more of a round shape, almost the size of a dime. It has no color that I can see. It lies under his hair. Sometimes the lump goes away temporarily. It is easy to make it reappear by making him laugh or when he cries or is straining in some way. It does not pulsate that I know of.
Avatar n tn about four days ago i found a hard lump behind my ear which is very painful also about four cm down i have a pea size lump, could this have been caused by what happened a few weeks ago?
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.
