Avatar n tn I have had a painless lump in my neck for several years. It is on the left side in the same area where my lymph nodes typically swell up when I have a cold. It is behind the upper part of my jaw, below my ear. It is hard, painless (unless I press it rather hard), immovable and about an inch in size. I have had two doctors who have been aware of it, but dismissed it. The first one put me on antibiotics to make it go down, but they did not do anything.
Avatar n tn I have recently come across a small lump in the right side of my neck located just past the halfway point of my neck and slightly towards the back (behind my ear as opposed to in front of it). The lump is not painful, hard, and I can move it slightly up and down, and it's not round more of and oval shape. I don't smoke or drink, I am however tired all the time.
Avatar n tn I am 21 years old and I have had a lump behind my jaw, on my neck, for about 5 or 6 years now. My lump, however, is internal and does not feel like cystic acne. I have been to several doctors and none of them can tell me what it is. I think it is possibly a swollen gland. I try so many things to make it go away, but it just won't. Does your lump seem more internal (like a gland) or external (like acne)?
Avatar n tn I have also discovered a lump in my neck right behind my ear and by my jaw line. It doesn't move and it isn't painful but I'm very concerned about it. I've been gaining weight and have been extremely fatigued. I just moved to Florida and don't have a doctor yet. Do you think I should have it checked at an urgent care or hospital? Does anyone know what it could possibly be?
Avatar n tn hey, i have never posted here in reply to a question so i hope i can help, I occasionly have a lump behind my ear that usuallly appears when i am stressed or rundown and it can be painful not unbearable just noticable so i went to the doctor and he explained this lump is caused by my body fighting a bug or not being 100% well and trying to get rid of it,and even if you feel 100% you could still be fighting a bug. i have noticed that when i have a colds or feel extremly run down it appears again.
Avatar n tn ) But yesterday I, too, discovered the lump (pea sized, not read, behind my left ear in the middle. it hurts to touch it, so I don't. I hope it's because I picked up E Coli or Samonella or something and the poison in my body is creating it. So for those worried about this, it's all new for me. I hope it's something in the body that the lymph isn't happy with and that's it.
Avatar f tn When there is sudden neck flexure the cervical vertebra compress thre cartilidge. This often results in lifelong pain that develops six months to a year after the injury. There is disagreement on treatment. You need an MRI. Keep well hydrated, take NSAIDS. One protocol is to use an axial traction device intermittantly (THREE TO SIX MINUTES) for short periods six to twelve times a day for the first three weeks.
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 n tn But over the last 4 days I have had a pain in the right side of my jaw. It's painful to yawn and to fully open my mouth. There is now a small bump located directly under my ear, behind my earlobe on my neck inbetween my jaw line and the large muscle on the right side of my neck, that little soft spot or pocket inbetween the skull and jaw.... The pain is moving into my ear and causing me to have headaches all through the day all on the right side of my head. Any ideas what this could be from?
Avatar n tn I was eatin some food and all of a sudden I got a pain in my neck almost behind my ear. A couple seconds later it turned into a big lump. I stated sweating really bad and started feeling sick (possibly from worrying). It has been a good 30 minutes and its still there. What could this be and is it serious?
Avatar n tn I have a large lump under my jaw and an iud too. is it related?
Avatar n tn I'm 23, and I just discovered a small lump on my neck below my ear, behind my jaw. It's only on the left side, and it's very hard. At the end of October, I went to the health center at my law school for an on and off fever, weight loss, and other miscellaneous symptoms. They did the mono blood test and I was positive. I seemed to get through it pretty easily, though my throat was miserable for 2 weeks or so and I was exhausted for those two weeks as well.
1748247 tn?1311803202 As to the swelling I feel that its to the lump behind my hear that is causing my jaw muscle and neck muscle to swell, as a defense to the lump behind my ear. I am also feeling numbness in my L. side of my face, lip and arm which she said is a nuero issue. She ordered a CT of my neck to check what she diagnosed me with to see what is the cause of my swollen shoulder. P.S.
Avatar f tn My guess on cancer: no, definitely not! It is good, however, you are having it checked. I don't understand "behind ear"... is that on your neck, or more up on your jaw? Can you see it (mirror) or is it something you have to feel with your fingers?
210459 tn?1197085792 I have had a lump in my neck for 7 years. I have buried my head about it till now afraid of what it may be. The lump is non painfull and about the size of a marble. It is slightly visible and protrudes maybe a tenth of an inch from neck. it has grown very slightly in the seven years. The lump is hard and mobile under skin. it feels like its attached to the skin underneath. the skin over it is normal colored. it is located directly in the middle front of neck just beneath my adams apple.

Avatar m tn I have a small lump on my neck, it is on the right side about halfway up. It is quite small, probably not much bigger than a pea and it feels like it is located on the neck muscle (of course I suppose it could be behind it and pushing the muscle, I am not qualified to say but I don’t think so). I have played sport before and it feels to me exactly like the kind of scar tissue you can get after a pulled muscle.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm a 24YO female and I've had this very small lump on the inner jaw close to the bottom of my mouth for about 4 years. It's under the skin, it doesnt move and it feels like a cyst (I have one behind my ear). But I don't see anything when I look in the mirror and when I read about cysts inside the mouth it says you should see it and that you have to have it removed. Mine doesnt bother me it's just there but I was wondering if it should be something to worry about.
Avatar f tn Hello all, Several days ago, I discovered a small lump on the right side of my neck. It's not a lymph node (under my right jaw) that I sometimes feel when I'm sick. It's a bit under the hairline behind the ear, if that makes sense. I don't feel one on the other side. Do you think this is something of enough concern to take to my doctor? I'm 25. My mom had thyroid cancer but her nodules were in the front, plus she was in her 50s. Thank you for any advice.
Avatar n tn I then noticed a hard acorn sized lump in the right side of my neck that is located just behind the corner of my jaw and . My neck hurt for that day and the next couple of days. The pain went away then i noticed pain in the right side of my back and even in my right pectorial. i also notised a strange pulsing feeling that shot down the front of my neck to the chest. After this swelling cotinued in the back of my back and got worse.
Avatar n tn hey -- my guess is that it's a swollen gland in her neck.. especially if she has a cold. These glands (or lymph nodes) enlarge when fighting infection in the body. They produce lymph with travels through your body in the lymph system and filter out impurites from the body... They are in other places in your body as well, such as armpits -- when I'm sick my armits sometimes hurt from the swollen glands...
1627094 tn?1304449886 My boyfriend has this lump or it may even be a cyst behind his neck and its really close to his ear. Since he was young he has always had health problems because when he was a baby he had heart surgery. I guess the doctors warned him and his mom that he will forever have and occasinal migraines. But now its gotten worse as his grown older.
215234 tn?1305146561 Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Avatar n tn I have a swollen one (for over a year now from when I noticed it) behind my left ear (hard and small) and another one under my jaw (left side) soft and moveable. I had been concerned about lymphoma or throat cancer. I saw int doc & ent doc and had bloodwork which came back normal and both doctors were not concerned stating that your lymph nodes are infection fighters and I possibly could have had an infection at one time in my life and they just never returned to normal.
