Avatar m tn My reason for posting, is that roughly a week and a half ago, I noticed a lump forming behind my front two teeth, on the roof of my mouth. It was a bit annoying, and I started to touch and press on it with my tongue. After a few days, the swelling showed up on the front of my gums, on my frenum (I believe that is the vein sort of line that runs between your two front teeth on your gums???). It is very noticeable on my gums now.

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.
Avatar m tn Over the last month a have a lump behind my ear, it's been growing a lot every week. It's now about the size of my ear lobe. It's right behind the lobe where jawbone crease is. It's sore but not painful at all an it's firm but seems kinda soft on top. Basically it's not soft or hard.. Kinda medium. I have had a gullbladder infection (or so the ER told me) a few months back. It's just growing so fast and I keep getting headaches everyday:( I have no insurance so can't afford to see doc atm.
Avatar n tn I noticed a huge lump that feels very tough above my teeth in the gumline right where the infection was. I know that this must have something to do with the infection. I took all of my antibiotics and everything seems to be ok. I am not in pain anymore as I was with the abcess. When I press on the hard lump, I can feel pressure on my teeth but, there is no pain. My next step is to go to the dentist to get the work done on that tooth. What could this lump possibly be?
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.

Avatar n tn But just lately my wisom teeth started growing out even more and the lower ones are impacted(epecially the one on the right side) , and I started feeling pressure behind my ears and most mornings when I wake up the lump behind my ear feels extra hard and slightly bigger, but throughout the day it goes down and the pressure goes away.

Avatar m tn This little lump behind my right ear is now going down my shoulder and getting worse. I've been to the DR. and had numerous tests, such as the MRI,Ex Ray,ultra sound and they say its nothing. I also have trouble sleeping on my side.
Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar f tn I have a lump at top gum line behind right front tooth. Seems to be getting bigger over last year. Most of the time painless unless I brush it hard or chew something there. I play with it all the time with my tongue. I have not brushed well the last few years there. Also what feels like crimped lumps on bottom of left side of mouth under tongue. Think it's where salivary gland is. I have no money and 3 kids and I haven't been able to see anyone because of the money issue. I'm afraid of cancer.
Avatar f tn I have several symptoms. I have a red lump on the top of my gum behind my right bottom moler tooth, where the jaw closes. When it gets inflamed I get a earache in my right ear. My tonsils are inflamed most of the time, but my right one always more. My lymph node under my jaw on the right side feels slightly swollen. I had my dentist look at it and a doctor about both can't seem to see it. It's the same color as my gums but it's raised and causes a earache. It is very bothersome. What is it???
Avatar n tn I also have these problems. I have a small lump behind each ear but the 1 behind the right ear is bigger. I am also getting headache, earache and have a sore throat. I went to the doctor 3 days ago and they said it was a throat infection and the lumps were just lymph nodes. I dont see how a throat infection would give me headache and earach. He gave me antibiotics but they dont seem to be helping. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow as I am very scared now.
Avatar f tn 3 months ago i noticed a lump on side of my left wrist, and gets painful sometimes on certain hand movements. And just yesterday, i found out that I have a lump behind my left ear. I've been having severe headaches as well as toothaches on the left side also. it seems that all these are happening on the left side of my body. additional info: i gave birth last april, preterm (30-31 weeks).
Avatar f tn Hi im a 27 yr old female, and i have a lump on both sides of my neck, under the ears and behind the jaw. they are painless and quite hard. i think they have been there for a very long time but think they have got bigger, the one on the left seems bigger than the right. i can only feel them, they are not so big you can see them and i can feel them much better when looking the other way so my neck is stretched. no other symptoms. im a smoker.
Avatar m tn Hi I noticed a lump behind my ear a few years ago and went to see a doctor about it who said it was a cyst and not to worry. On Sunday I noticed it had got really big (visible, about pea sized) and then found another one at the top of my neck too. The one behind my ear is hard and painless and the one on my neck feels bigger and softer and is a bit tender.
Avatar m tn i still have 2 upper wisdom teeth that hasnt been removed, however, behind my right upper wisdom tooth there seems to be a bony long lump within my gums, it seems to attached to my skull, and i dont have any idea what it was, my other side does not have the same knot/lump
Avatar n tn hi doc, i noticed that i have a stange bubble like thing behind my front teeth on my gums. It does not hurt, but it is irritating when i talk as my tounge hits it and feel stange. it hurts a bit when i try to apply preasure on it. What is that? and what should i do?
Avatar f tn I have recently found a lump behind each ear. They appeared pratically overnight One is larger than the other one and are very sore to touch. I also have found I have one on top of my head which only small but again sore. I've been having problems with my teeth and have an abcess I need to get sorted, and thought maybe these lumps could be connected to that, but I'm not really sure. Any idea's on what they could be?
Avatar n tn The top 3 teeth in my mouth all have stitches - and the roof of my mouth behind 2 of the teeth. This is not fun. Oh and all this work was done in and around an existing 4 tooth fixed bridge because I do not, on SSDI, have over $6,000 to have that removed and everything completely redone. The procedure I had done last Friday? $950 + I'm assuming a ton of small fees for follow-up visits, x-rays, etc. on top of normal cleaning/exams.
Avatar m tn Hello My mother had cyst removal operation from the maxillary sinus few years ago, shortly after that she noticed lump on the right side of hard palate, behind the canine teeth (2x2cm). She felt tingling and weak pain while lump growing but now it does not hurt and has stopped growing. She was send to CT and doctors said that there is chronic inflammation with periostal hypertrophy. Sorry for my bad English. What does that mean and what could it be?
Avatar n tn I would be anything from schoolwork, to internet browsing, to watching tv, to eating, to even just laying down in the dark and I would get these intense sharp pains on the back of my head behind my right ear. This pain only occurs in this location and it comes and goes. At first the pains were simply a nuesance as they would come and go and weren't that bad, but lately they're getting worse causing me to stop what I'm doing until they go away.

Avatar n tn Hello, I too have recently noticed fairly symmetrical white hard lumps approximately 4 teeth apart on the inner lower mouth, behind the bottom teeth. They appear to be rigid and fixed. As stated they are directly behind and below the same "set or pair" of teeth and just before the lower jaw is noticeable. I will be seeing a dentist of course, however is this something my primary care doctor should be looking at as well.
