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 m tn Most of the time, the initial presentation is a unilateral neck node enlargement (one side of the neck) that is progressively enlarging. I believe you can convince your father to have a check up with his doctor. Diagnostic procedures will be carried out in order to have a more definite diagnosis. Good luck.
Avatar n tn 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. They ran tests and found I have a very small lump on my thyroid not to be alarmed too small for biopsy. For the past 8 months or so I have been experiencing pain in the ear when I sleep on that side.

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 Your symptoms could be due to a middle ear infection, which can spread causing a painful lump behind the ear. This could be a lymph node or sometimes the infection can spread to the mastoid bone. But if it is due to this you should have accompanying ear pain. Sometimes repetitive injuries or strain can also produce these symptoms. Inflammation of the muscles, joints and surrounding soft tissues can also cause pain. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.

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 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 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? Is it worth going to the doctor for or should it go away?
Avatar n tn I have a lump on my collar bone close to my neck that is painful. I am not sure if this is the right forum to come to but I thought I would at least try. The lump isn't hard and the pain radiates up to behind my ear. It is more of an annoyance than anything. I was wondering if anyone might have any thoughts on this. I can't see my Dr until the end of July and more than likely it will be gone by then.

Avatar f tn Last month, within an hour, I felt a painful swelling behind my left ear. I was given antibiotic which brought down the swelling but the nagging tenderness and tightness behind my ear, extending to my neck,persisted. I was given another dose of antibiotic but the pain is still there which is more than a month already. The pain is more obvious when I press behind and just below the ear lobe.
Avatar n tn Last night I noticed a lump on the back of my neck, on the right side, at the base of my skull. It's about the size of a penny and doesn't seem to be moving around or anything. It isn't real painful, only if I poke at it. I haven't had any visual issues, nor terrible headaches or nausea or anything. I had my family and a couple friends feel it and they all said it feels like a tension knot.
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.
400417 tn?1201403749 On top of this, I discovered today that the lump behind my areola had increased to the size of a ping-pong ball and was very painful as well. I was feeling my absolute worst when I discovered the much larger lump in my breast. As far as i know, there isn't any family history of breast cancer and the only cancer I know of was my father, who battled benign brain tumors (at first) which were operated on twice and on the third time, the tumors had become cancerous.
