As of date i have had no test ran on me and i am in perfect health no other symptoms exist. 1 year ago i began having pain in my arms and back, I visited two different neurologist and had two MRIs of the lower and mid back.
Avatar n tn I have a bump (lump) behind my right ear it is larger than a pea or a pimple... it is a little smaller than a dime around. it is slightly raised, not bulging out so much... it doesn't hurt, but i can definetly feel some sort very very slight pain if i press it too hard. it is pretty tender, not mushy or really soft. It isn;t discolored. It is right next to my hair line behind the middle area behind my ear. Should I be worried?
Avatar n tn I too have a lump behind my ear, have thyroid issues, fatique, irregular periods, anemia, iron defiecency, and just this morning had blood work and ultrasound done of thyroid.

Avatar f tn Painless lump behind the ear could be Lump behind the ear could be folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). Watch the lump. Do not touch everyday but once in 10-15 days. If the lump increases in size, becomes painful, changes color, bleeds, changes shape or consistency or more similar lumps appear then consult a doctor. Hope this helps.

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.
Avatar n tn I'm a 24 year old female-A couple of months ago I woke up with a painful pea to marble sized lump under the skin on my ear. It is located right where my ear connects to my head, on the bottom. Like if I were to pull my earlobe away from my head, it is in that "flap" of skin. Because it was painful and hard, I assumed it was a boil as I have had these in the past. I treated it with warm washclothes and heating pads, but the lump never softened or drained, however, the pain did go away.
Avatar n tn I now have a small pea sized lump behind the ear. It has really been painful for me the last couple days. My sinuses are bugging me as well. It is a continuous pain that only goes away when I lie on it or push near the area. It really hurts to touch it. It causes sever headaches all around. I also have felt sick and dizzy. I went to the clinic again. The doctor there asked me if I had bumped my head on something. Of course I think I would know.
Avatar n tn Either accompanied with radiating pain on the right or straight through to my forehead. Last week I noticed a lump behind my right ear (like a pea cut in half on the lower part of the skull behind the ear). Doc says it is a cyst - hard as bone and painless. Last night I was massaging my neck and noticed another lump where the spine meets the skull (egg sized and shaped - soft) but when I pressed on it to determine if it is soft or hard I set off a headache that won't stop.
Avatar f tn about 4 days ago i noticed a small pea sized lump behind my 7 year old daughters ear. its not very hard but when i touch it you can tell it causes discomfert. she has not been sick at all in about in 3 months. any ideas what this could be?
Avatar n tn So it all happened around six to seven months ago when my wife got one lump behind her ear and it is the size of a pea. We didn't think much about it but then she started getting more lots more. She now has three of four lumps around her hair line on the back of her neck. She has one lump behind her right ear. She has three behind her left ear including the first one she got that was pea sized. But she also got one right below her left eyebrow kinda on the eyelid.
Avatar m tn my wife has a marble sized lump and two pea sized lumps behind her left ear . also two marble sized bumps on her head just at the hair line in the front off her head. she says they hurt when its cold almost like a tingly burning sensation. they dont hurt all off the time. she is a worrywart can anybody maybe give us a guess to what this may be. so she doesnt drive me crazy.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks post exposure i noticed a node behind my left ear that only normally comes up if i have a cold but i did not have one. Approx 4 weeks post exposure i developed a very bad case of Tonsillitis that grew worse over a few days and had to be treated with antibiotics on a high dosage as the standard dose did not work. My daughter had Tonsillitis 2 weeks prior to me having it and my son was currently ill at the time of my Tonsillitis with a fever of 99+ & sore throat etc.
Avatar f tn I get them behind my ear. A friend had a cyst on his testicle, it got infected, and he swelled up to soft ball size, and they had to drain his sack. If the sack of the cysts breaks ( from squeezing, or picking at it) thats when it gets really infected, and has to be drained.
Avatar f tn His doctor is sending us to a ENT on wednesday, and I am absolutely terrified. His doctor has no clue what it could be. He just kept saying it was strange. It doesn't move much, but it does a little but feels like its attached to the tissue that connects to his jaw. It has no give to it whatsoever, it's hard like bone. Does anyone have the slightest clue what this might be? My son is only 7 years old and I am so worried I can hardly think straight.
Avatar n tn My son is 2, and just today i noticed a lump behind his right ear. it is aboutthe size of a pea. it feels hard like bone. reading all these posts have been very helpful. i am very worried and am thinking i should go see a doctor..any advice?
Avatar n tn My son is 4 years old and he has 2 small bumps in the back of his ear, He has not fallen or been hurt their. The reason I noticed it is because he keeps scratching behind the ear and i noticed the lumps and I checked the rest of his head and I also noticed he has 2 more lumps in the back of his head where the skull ends. He does not complain about it hurting, i dont know if that is a good sign or not.
Avatar n tn it feels like it is between my stomach and the sternum somehow. and it is the size of a golf ball and it is hard. and it doesn't move. any idea what can it be? I am very worried, but will see the doc for an endoscopy only on the 14th. they were booked until then. thanks.
Avatar n tn I have a pretty large lump on my neck right at my jawline right behind my ear. It gets bigger when I tilt my head to the side too. I have a lump on the other side...but not nearly as big. I went to my primary physician today and he did a blood work up...cbc count ect. and am getting a MRI done tomorrow. I am worried sick!!!!!!! I've also been really tired lately and my muscles seem weaker. Does anyone know about this type of thing????

Not sure what it is...just curious what it is. it is almost similur to these but most them have neck pain and i don't have pain in my neck just the lump in back of my tongue not sure if it is a lump or not and the earache....
Avatar m tn i was cracking my neck one morning and i pulled a muscle i guess and i felt this lump but thought it was due to the pulled muscle.. the lump doesnt hurt but it is some what of a discomfort.. recently i've been tired but i cant blame it on the lump since i dont get much sleep. The lum is small and hard its right between the hair line and back of my neck .. when i press on doesnt really hurt but it does bother me from time to time..
210459 tn?1197085792 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 n tn Almost immediately after cough ended I noticed a pea sized hard lump on the left side of my neck 2 inches behind and 4 inches below my left ear. It is well under the skin and seems to be grown out of the large muscle there that runs until it touches the top of my jaw. A week after the lump I noticed my throat/mouth/lips are very dry if I don't talk for a long period or constantly drink. Only really notice at home since I am a Customer Service Rep at work and talk all day.
Avatar f tn I have a lump behind my right jaw, directly below my ear lobe. This lump has gone from the size of a small pea to about 1&1/2inches long and about 3/4 to 1inch wide. There is no pain when the lump is touched but in the last 2-3 weeks I've been having pain on the right when I open my mouth to eat or yawn. I can not have a CT with contrast because of an allergy that caused anaphylaxis the last time I got the contrast. So...
