Avatar f tn I have a movable, pea (or smaller) sized lump in (upper) front of my right ear and right on the area where you feel your jaw open when opening mouth wide. It cannot be 'seen'. No pain or change in size for at least 20 years. I found it years ago when massaging a sore jaw joint. It sort of feels like it's in a tendon and in front of the Tragus.
Avatar n tn I always have and was wondering if anyone else out there that has these swollen nodes in neck also have problems with their teeth and also wondering if problems with teeth (infections and such) could cause the nodes in the back of the neck swell up. Also, the glands in the front of my neck have always been large... these problems I've experienced have gone on for years... So, I'm hoping its nothing serious because, if it is, and I have it for years.... what chance would I have?
Avatar m tn Hi, I've had this pea-sized lump on my scalp for years ever since I was a child. It's about the size of a pea and it feels fleshy and scratching it may cause it to bleed. I have no idea what it is/if it's harmful and how to get rid of it. Any insight is appreciated!
Avatar n tn I also get occasional pain in the back of the neck. I get a lot of inflamation now...under my right cheek even down to my entrie right side inflamation increases depending on what I eat. I am currently taking Omega 3 supplements, magnesium, and vit B and am feeling better w/the inflamation subsiding. I have had such a long road..with this with it. I've had tried many RX and couldn't handle the stuff....the Omega's are really working well....
Avatar n tn so reading through everyone elses comments here, i too have discovered a small pea sized lump behind my right ear.. i have had no signs of sickness, rather then an irregular amount of headaches.. i cant sleep on it and it hurts to touch. i have no clue what it is and am a little stressed out about it all. i have had it for almost three days and am reading of all the possiblilties and becoming slightly worried !!
Avatar n tn It definitely sounds like a swollen lymph node. One thing to bear in mind - I had (actually still have) a pea-sized lump on my jaw and had it checked out last year. My doctor said as a rule of thumb, if the lump is soft and can be moved around, it is generally harmless, but if it is hard, it needs evaluation. So it's a good idea to have it looked at as soon as you can.
Avatar n tn Please go get it checked out. One of my sisters(33yr) noticed a lump at the end of feb/beginning of March. Told my mom about it my mom said go to the dr. My sisters Dr. had just left his practice. It took her about 2-3wks. To get in. make a long story short she was told that she had vulva cancer. She had surgery two weeks later. Since then she has been super sick(throwing up non stop).
Avatar n tn I have lost weight recently and noticed the lump, but also I have noticed a lump in the upper part of my stomach, which probably has me worried more. I don't know if this is related, but it is making me look like I am pregnant. I just wonder if any or all of this chest and stomach stuff is related? Let me know if anyone has any insight on this.
Avatar n tn I have an indentation on top of my head that I am getting checked out in a couple of weeks.It's been here for years but is getting sensitive and seems to be growing larger.Jen3000:So glad that tumors were ruled out for you.Bet you are relieved.I am also wondering if the indentation could have anything to do with why my heart goes dangerously out of rythym everytime I take practicly all meds.This has been a mystery to doctors.
Avatar n tn maternal parent can transfer it to a child at birth through blood exchange or in the birth canal. Think on the lines of infected hair follicles, that may be what it is.
Avatar n tn The lump in my breast was new as of 7-8 months ago. Had a needle biopsy a couple of months ago of the lump in my breast that came out negative. Was still concerned about the thing on my rib so my surgeon and I decided together to do a surgery and just take them both out. Got the news yesterday that both are cancer, invasive ductal cancer. Even the tumor that was originally thought to be benign via needle biopsy turned out to be cancer.

Avatar n tn I was reading all the post and seen that a warm cloth would help with the pain of the lump in my bikini area. As I read on further I decided to try the warm cloth, i added epson salts to the water and used the wash cloth as a compress. After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump.
Avatar m tn   I've been to an ENT (twice) who scoped it (twice) and said there was thick mucus in the back of my nasal cavity and that it was irritated.  I always feel like I have pressure in the back of my throat and actually have to "snort" (I know that sounds disgusting) very aggressively to finally dislodge some thick mucus so that the back of my upper throat/nasal passage feels better--sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
Avatar n tn Hi, during a routine breast exam, I located a lump that was in the 8-9 o'clock position. It was pea-sized. I watched it over the last couple of months and it didn't change size, but two of my aunts on my mothers' side have had breast cancer, so I decided I needed to get it checked out. I had a regular breast exam and pap smear, with my physician also finding the lump. She recommended me to have a mammogram. I went to a clinic in Rochester, NY that specializes in Breast Cancer...
Avatar f tn I do not want to initiate any unnessary enquiry which could jeopardise the doctors careers but I definately want all of the doctors to have knowledge of the situation though so that they might think about this in the future. Im not sure if a general letter to my surgery practice manager detailing the events might be worthwhile if only to get my concerns across.
Avatar n tn Hi. I think I have a similar problem but I'm not sure if its the same and i'm worried that it might be herpes. I have this sore on one side of the vaginal outer lip that started as just a hard lump. then after a few days it became an open sore that looks like a canker sore if anyone's ever had those. it really hurts and is sort of enlarged. There isn't really anything to "pop" in terms of blood and pus but there's this white coating.
Avatar f tn I just found a lump the size of a pea in the penis. Its not visible and its a bit below the skin. I have no idea what it is.
Avatar n tn Recently I discovered 3 additional fatty lumps in my neck. The ones in my neck appear to be a little deeper than the others. Some of the lumps have been on my body for several years and all of them have got larger and harder. The ones in my arm are painful if touched in the wrong way. I informed the doctor that I wanted the ones in my left arm removed. But he refused stating that such a procedure was unnecessary because the lumps a "harmless.
Avatar n tn I have had it for months on and of. I have a lump constanly in the crease of my finger. If I go climbing or carry shopping bags its really painful. So I try to be careful not to put pressure on it to stop the "pop" which is even more excrutiating. Hope someone out there can help.
393893 tn?1283554830 Last night, my husband found a lump on the side of his neck. Took him to urgent care and the doctor there said he was pretty sure it was just an innocent swollen lymphnode but it needs to be closely monitored. Today we went back to the doctor and she said he actually has 2-3 swollen lymphnodes on his neck. She said the "c" word is not on her list but she is testing just to be safe. She is also testing for allergies etc. We will hopefully get the test results back tomorrow.
Avatar n tn or not lol but the recent one i got about a week ago, i was wondering why it hadnt gone down so i was doing some research and noted some things down then tonight i had a hot bath then took to the lump with a sharp safety pin, just 'gently' tearing the top of the lump a little in various places (just did what my instinct told me to, to be honest!) and it started bleeding slightly (it did hurt) then i gave it a go of squeezing it abit, then alot, then harder etc.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a pea sized sore that resembled a canker sore on the inside of my labia majora. It is red and crater-like with a white center. It is itchy and sore and I was wondering what I could do to get rid of it and what it could be. I am fighting a sinus infection as well, i'm not sure if there is any relevance. I hurts a lot and is annoying when I am trying to sleep. Please help!
Avatar n tn The hole is about 1/4 inch in diameter, but I'm still a little concerned about having a hole in my belly! Of course, both my GP and OBGYN are closed for the holidays so I called the hospital that did my surgery. The nurse suggested I cover my belly button up with a band-aid or gauze and tape. Has anyone had this experience? Does it eventually heal from the inside out?
Avatar f tn I have a movable, rubbery, FLAT smaller than a pea (1/2 pea) sized lump in (upper) front of my right ear and right on the area where you feel your jaw open when opening mouth wide. It cannot be 'seen' and cannot be felt when mouth is wide open. No pain or change in size for at least 20 years. I found it years ago when massaging a sore jaw joint. It sort of feels like it's in a tendon and in front of the Tragus. No heat, not tender, no symptoms. Preauricular lymph node?
Avatar m tn My doctor at VCU health systems in Richmond, VA going to be part of a trial for Xolair starting in April that I am hoping to be a part of. If you are anywhere close by you should give him a call, Dr. Schwartz in allergy.
Avatar n tn My daughter just turned three. for the last year she has had a pea sized lump in her neck below her ear. has not changed in size and is movable. dr has described this as a lymph node. she tends to have a constant runny nose - majority of the time it is clear mucous. she coughs a few times a day - two doctors have said that this is just an over production of mucous and that it will clear in a few years. got some blood work done with our naturopathic doctor.
