Avatar n tn On a side note, the past few weeks (starting a 2 weeks before noticing this back lump) I have had a sore area in my throat (not a sore throat!, no pain swallowing, but an irregular feeling like a lump or abrasion) WITH what seemed to be salivary gland pain, two (first tender, then hard) lymph glands in neck, and pain/throb in armpit, groin, and femoral region (no noticed lumps except swollen pain in groin while on Augmentin) and ear pain.
Avatar n tn I have been having a lump in my throat for several months. After thinking I was getting food caught in my throat and even getting an endoscopy I've begun to think it may be food allergies. I do not find it hard to breath though. Can a food allergy symptom be a lump in the throat or chest without feeling hard to breath? I usually feel this just after eating and I feel very nauseous some of the time. I have a bit of a feeling of pins and needles in my throat sometimes.
Avatar f tn Hello, This lump looks like swollen lymph node in response to the sore throat. In some cases, over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers and warm compresses may be all you need. Treatment of sore throat can cause regression of size of lymph nodes. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn After that, I woke up with a Cough and Ear Ache in the middle of the night. That morning I woke up with a sore throat and a popped ear (same ear). The sore throat lasted a few days, the popped ear was gone within 2. Its been 9 days now, and I feel much better. I have had a lot less cough. I still dont feel 100% . I feel like i have a lump in my throat, making swallowing a struggle. When I clear my throat, I cough up normal light green/white phlegm.
Avatar m tn 3 wks ago I had my tooth worked on at the dentist to relieve some preassure of tooth pain I was having. No bump or swelling at that time. I finished my amoxicillan prescribed. Three days later, I started with pain again and major swelling in cheek. I went back into dentist and they tried to drain the hard ping pong sized lump in my lower right cheek. I left feeling less pain, but more swelling and bigger lump/more hard.
2133874 tn?1335812339 White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat which you had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I have a very inflamed throat and an ear ache which the doctor said was responding to the sore throat. PLEASE quick answer-Thanks SO much.
Avatar f tn Swollen lymph glands can cause a lump on one side of your throat. Have you had a recent sore throat? Strep? Ear infections? Sinus infection? In some cases, even after antibiotics, some bacteria can remain, and cause a swollen gland or lymph node. A longer round of antibiotics typically clears it right up.
Avatar m tn 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?
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 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 Hi, A lump behind the ear in children 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. Does he have any other symptoms of fever, etc?
Avatar n tn I suggest you see an Ear nose and throat specialist. They will be able to take a look in your nasal area as well as in your throat. So suggest to your family doctor you would like to see your local specialist.
Avatar f tn it do sound like you have an infection in your throat and maybe your ears,the lump could be a swollen gland but as londres said after four days and it havent cleared you should go to the doctors.
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 f tn Fast forward a year and I am still not the same person.The lump in my ear/neck area is constantly tender and painful. The majority of the time I have an earache. This has been causing me discomfort and pain now for a year! I feel dismissed by the doctor I saw and cannot afford to keep going back without results. I need a direction or suggestions as to what to do next. I am losing sleep over this and feel an urgency to press on. I am a female, age 42, 5;3", 135 lbs.Thank you.
Avatar f tn Recently I found a small soft lump in my throat under my chin at my jaw line. I have had a sore throat and then I notice the lump. My sore throat went away but the lump is still there. Sometimes I have pain in my throat near the lump but it only lasts a second and then goes away. It's on the right side of my face, nothing on the left. Should I be alarms or does it just sound like swollen lymph node?? Help!!
Avatar n tn Today i noticed that my ear was sore, and found a lump in my earlobe, it hurts when i touch it and appears to be turning a bit purple, i also noticed the lymph node on my throat is swollen.. any ideas as to what it may be?
Avatar f tn About three years ago, I notice a lump by my right ear (in front of my ear lobe). I thought it was a huge pimple but nothing came out until I poked it with a pin. Now I have a lump with a deep whole in it. Roughly a year later, a second lump appeared above the orginal lump. Now I have, what I think is, a swollen submandibular gland (same side as my 'lumpy' ear), with a marble sized hard lump (possible lymph node) in front of it.
Avatar f tn Hi, Cancers that involve the throat, base of the tongue, tonsil, or pharynx usually present with a sore throat that does not go away, cough, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, ear pain, blood-tinge sputum or a lump in the back of the mouth, throat or neck. Are there other symptoms present? You have an increased risk of developing throat cancer if you smoke tobacco and drink alcohol, chew betel quid, or being infected with human papillomavirus (HPV).
Avatar f tn My right ear has been hurting and both ears have been feeling like my ears need to pop. The sore throat/ feeling of a lump in my throat has been there for over a month. The ENT did scope down my throat and didn't see anything. I know that I have anxiety about these things, but it scares me that it could be cancer. Do these symptoms appear to be something bad? I have tried to get the doctors to do something but they haven't yet. Any answers would be welcome!
1866508 tn?1333984613 greetings all, I have an extremely swollen lump under my left ear and behind my jaw that is excruciatingly painful and rather large, approx. the size of a quarter maybe a little bigger. I have had a lot of sinus congestion over the past several days and producing a lot of mucous,really thick viscous and slightly greenish-yellow. I had a very low-grade fever for a day or so (99.0-99.8) but none for the past few days since this lump showed up and has gotten large and very painful rather quickly.
