Avatar n tn Worried about this lump behind my ear
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 found, what sounds like, the same lump behind my left ear. It's hard & stationary & a little painful if I push on it. I just noticed it today. I have been a little stressed out lately...planning my wedding. I does worry me though even though I'm only 36 & otherwise healthy. Should I be concerned??

Avatar n tn I notice 3 weeks ago a lump directly behind my ear just behind my ear lob more in the crack. Over the past week it has gotten large and more painful.

Avatar n tn Last week, I noticed a painful to the touch lump on the back of my ear exactly where it connects to my head. I applied a hot towel to it thinking it might be a boil. This did not help, it only made it more inflamed. I forgot about it until yesterday when I was showering washing behind the ears with soap when I felt two more lumps (that are not painful) behind the ear on the neck area. I am Hypothyroid and last year I was experiencing throbbing in the ear.

Avatar f tn I have a painful lump behind my ear. Once in a while I will get a throbbing pain that feels like someone is pushing on my pressure point. That hurts so bad, it makes my vision blurry. Its only on my left side though. I also can hear something in my ear. It sounds like the beating of my heart. Its very annoying when everything is quiet, because that is all I can hear. I was recently running a fever and had a sore throat. Please someone help me find answers.

Avatar f tn My eight year old daughter has a painful lump behind her ear and another painful lump on her neck on the same side. I would say that each is a bit smaller than a marble. She is being treated for swimmer's ear. Could the lumps be a side effect of the medicine? Is it possibly an infection?

Avatar n tn I suddenly have a lump that showed up on the my right ear just below the ear lobe, its small but very painful to touch and is very hard. It moves when you touch it and it has caused my ear a slight swelling.

Avatar m tn My daughter has a lump behind her right ear about the size of a dime. When I first notice the lump, it was smaller than a pencil eraser. There is some discomfort when the area is touched at times, and sometimes there is more swelling. She has complained with ear aches as well as headaches for 4+ months now and I have repeatedly taken her to the doctor. Ever visit, the doctor has said that her ear is healthy and normal.
Avatar n tn For the past few months, I have been experiencing dull headaches, and they seem to radiate from one spot, which is directly behind my right ear. Last year, a painful lump about an inch in diameter appeared on the bone behind that same ear, which obviously influenced me to seek medical attention. Before I went to the doctor, I looked up a possible diagnosis for that lump, and the one that fit suggested that it was an osteoma.
