Avatar n tn 2 days ago i noticed a lump behind my ear (not on my ear but on the skull part) that is hard.It doesn't seem to have gone down over these two days. I have been also been having very strong and painful headaches for 5 days now that don't seem to go away. The lump is not painful to touch from the top but if I press it from the underside then it does seem to hurt a little. I was just wondering what it could be and whether i need to worry or not.
Avatar n tn I will not be able to give you any advice but I know there are a lot of different kinds of lumps behind the ear and very different causes. So, now that we know the exact location... it would be good to know the size and what it feels like. Having had a hard "lump behind my ear", same location, all my life, I was wondering whether you may have had that lump for a long time and only discovered it now due to the sinus infection pains?
Avatar n tn He was hospitalized last week for tests due to a lump behind his ear that is extrememly painful. His vision is blurry, his right arm is tingley and he has severe headaches. The tests ranged from blood work, MRI to a spinal tap. All tests came back fine. Does anyone know what he could have?
Avatar m tn I have a lump behind my left ear. It hasn't hurt for the first days I noticed it. but it is slowly starting to become more painful to the touch, and even when I'm not touching it. It's about pea-size. Hard, and not movable. If anything else I also suffer from lost appetite, and little nausea, I get headaches sometimes too if that means anything. That's it. I'm 20, and female.
Avatar n tn Hi All, I am a 23 year old female and about 3 months ago I found a hard, immovable lump behind my right ear. There is one behind my left ear too but it is much smaller. I went to my Dr and he said it was just part of my normal anatomy. I wasn't convinced. I went to see another Dr who said the same but done a blood test anyway. The results came back clear.
868575 tn?1250191618 Hi, Please have a surgeon evaluate the hard, growing, lump behind behind your ear. About your other conditions, please continue to be under follow-up for the GI and neurological symptoms. Please post additional questions if you need more specific advise. All the best, and God Bless!
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 n tn There is one particular swelling just behind and between my ear lobe/jaw which is causing my a lot of worry. The pain seems to travel down into my neck muscles and the back of my neck, more recently my shoulders, and seems to radiate around on both sides. my neck doesn't look swollen particularly when i look in the mirror, but it feels it.
Avatar n tn I am a 37 year old male and have had a recent bout of these intensely painful sensations behind the right ear, located about an inch behind the hair line in the hard, nobbly bit near the base of the skull (sorry, I don't know the technical term for this part of the head). The pain is a throbbing sensation, seems to come on for no apparent reason and usually lasts between five and thirty minutes. I teach in an adult education facility so spend a lot of time sat at a desk, marking papers etc.
Avatar n tn I have found a small painful lump at the base of my skull on the lower right side--just above the hair line on that bone right behind the ear---seemed to come up yesterday----no lesion or break in the skin or redness--just painful and slightly squishy--I have an appointment with dermatologist in about 2 weeks---does this seem like a dermatologist issue?
Avatar n tn Hi, A lump behind the ear 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. This could be mastoiditis, cervical lymphadenopathy or parotitis.

436191 tn?1256649906 Feels like a cord is tugging me from behind my ear (skull) down the neck and into shoulder/clavicle. Not sure if that accident is to blame. Had issues before that but 1 month post accident I felt something "tear/burn" in the neck and things got much wose. No bladder problems. Chronic constipation and history of ulcerative colitis which has been inactive. No swelling... do have muscle pain in areas near kidney (qudradus lumborum/psoas etc).
4922507 tn?1361079848 A painful lump swelled up behind my ear and was painful and tender to touch, and my right lower jaw is very stiff, tender and also 'throbs'. The lump (which i believe from research is a lymph gland?) has now gone down but it is still painful to touch any of the area along my jaw from where my tooth was taken out up to my ear. The teeth either side of the extraction also feel very sensitive. I am not in any major pain, it is more of an annoyance.

Avatar n tn Hello, I have a quarter sized soft lump on my head, behind my right ear. It is the same color as the rest of my skin, round and smooth, and the mass moves when I put pressure on it. I saw a dermatologist last year and was told that it was a mass of fat tissue and not to worry; however, it has grown since then. It doesn't hurt so I've left it alone but it's definitely gotten bigger. I just graduated and don't have medical insurance yet... Can anyone help?
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 Hi, I have a sort of bubble expanding sensation in my right ear, its wierd and uncomfortable. My gland behind said ear is permanently swollen and at any one time can go into overdrive and swell hugely and very painfully. I often suffer with cellulitis infections, which causes the glands behind my ears, down my neck and around my upper back to swell and at times become painful. This is due to another condition I have called Ora Facial Granulomatosis. I also have a paralysed diaphragm.
Avatar m tn 27 y/o gay male, ive gave oral sex on five different partners no more than five times, saw no visible signs of anything appearing std related. Theres a flesh colored lump above my right tonsil, on the palatopharngeal arch and visibly blocked by the palatoglossal arch, when I squeeze my throat together it pops out. theres something similar on the other side, more like compressed skin VS a lump.
Avatar n tn Not untill cuple months ago, when I felt a lump in my right breast on the rigth side of it. When I knowtice, the lump was the size of a dime at that time. This really has me concern because everytime I take a shower, I check the lump and it is getting bigger, now it's the sizes of a quater, maybe a bit bigger. My breast, always feels sore and when I press the lump, it hurts. I don't have any medical insurance, my husband became unemployed on January of this year.
Avatar n tn I also have a not painful golf ball sized lump below my sternum and slightly to the right side. I found it during the middle of a weight loss biggest loser style competition that ended up winning. At the point I found it I think I had lost about 30 lbs in about 4 weeks. 2 more months have passed and I have been to two doctors and one physical therapist. No one seems concerned about it but no one did an xray or anything other than push on it either.
Avatar n tn I am so glad I found this forum. My almost 11 month old daughter has a hard lump behind her right ear and has had it since birth. I was told it was just the way her head formed and not to worry. I got a second opinion and this doc said to keep an eye on it because it does seem to move. It hasn't gotten any bigger and it doesn't cause any pain to my knowledge. We are going in for her 12 month visit and I am going to request an Xray just to put my mind at ease!
Avatar f tn My problem in the left side of my head has come back after being silent for a short time in summer. I have pain sometimes under the ear, sometimes in or behind the ear. Temple pain has not occurred recently. The pain comes most often in early morning hours. I had also some congestion up in my nose, when I was in bed. Very viscous postnasal drip has slightly increeased. I have had postnasal drip for more than ten years. In the autumn I have had red flecks in mouth mucosa and sticky saliva.
Avatar n tn For the last 2 yrs I have also been getting painful sharp pain in my right eye. Something strange is growing behind my right ear one is almost like a blister more oval, the other a little bigger and hard they feel sore if I press it. May Dr says I may be hypothyroid what really concerns me is cancer. Is there a chance I may have it or can these symptoms be normal? I appreciate your opinion.
Avatar m tn Both doctors said it was not a lymph node which is positive but there is still a lump and I guess any unexplained lump is a worry. No other symptoms though.
785584 tn?1273252832 I still have lots of ear pain -- my post-op ear pain is now a full blow cold! Lots of sinus pressure and a sore throat. If I were still pre-op, I'd be in bed from the head pain like last time, so thank God for that! Antibiotics should help a ton. I am finding the leg numbness thing too! But just my left leg, really. It was so bad, especially when we all had stomach flu last week! I spent lots of time at the toilet! Hopefully it will resolve itself.
Avatar n tn I have a pea sized lump behind my right ear for a few months. It's starting to grow bigger. It hurts when I touch it. But mostly hurts after I shower, I feel like my head and ears are plugged with water. I get sore thoats off and on and sometimes runny nose like having a cold but it comes and goes. At night when I lie on my side I feel like theres fluid draining from my ear. Sometimes I feel my ear is plugged. Sometimes my left ear feels sore, and plugged but I have no lump on that ear.
