Avatar f tn About 8 days ago she went to the doctor with strep-throat. Now today I noticed she has a lump behind her right ear, should I be concerned? I read it could just be her body fighting the infection. Should I get her to the doctor or should I just keep an eye on the lump for a few days? She is 8 years old.
2133874 tn?1335812339 The swelling and pain could also be due to mastoiditis, which is infection of the bone behind the ear. This happens when there is a middle ear infection, which spreads to involve the mastoid bone. But as your symptoms are resolving, you could wait and watch. However, if you develop fever, increase in the size of the swelling or pain; please consult your primary care physician. In the meantime you can use OTC Acetaminophen for relief from pain. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Hiya, I've had a lump behind my left ear for a about 3-4 weeks now.. It's small & hard & it isn't sore or tender at all.. I had a cold about 3 weeks ago so I presumed it was something to do with that, & my Dr. said it was when I went to see him, however, my cold has been & gone & all that's left is a sore throat.. But it isn't sore all the time, just at night when I'm sleeping?

Avatar m tn Hi. I've had what appears to be a boil behind my right ear lobe. It sore, warm and slightly itchy. What worries me is right below it is sore, my right side neck area. The last few days that area also feels like it is getting a hard lump under my skin, but this lump is not sore,warm like the boil behind my ear. My right side upper shoulder/neck is also sore. When I turn my head right it is sore. I'm not really sure what this all means. Do you think I should go to the doctor?
Avatar f tn Hi there....I'm new to this post and was wondering...I found a lump behind my 4-year old son's ear....last week he had a sore throat in addition to him saying that a bug bit him in that same spot. It was red and swollen a week ago, now it's just a pea-sized bump. Since then he's had no symptoms of being sick, but the bump is still that a lymph node and are they reactive? I keep touching it to see if it's getting bigger.
Avatar n tn Hi, A lump behind the ear in children 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. Does he have any other symptoms of fever, etc?

Avatar f tn i am on week 13 of tx and I am going on my 6th week of having a sore throat and can not get rid of it. I took antibiotics for 7 days and didnt help at all. My Lymph Nodes located behind the ears and my throat are so enlarged that they are very sore. My nose is congested and is constantly bleeding. Is anyone having this problem? and is their any releif? Thank you for helping.
Avatar n tn Hello, I don’t think your symptoms are related to fibromyalgia. From your symptoms of ear pain and sore throat on one side of throat it can be due to Eustachian tube dysfunction. For each ear, a eustachian tube runs from the middle ear to the back of the throat and when this tube is blocked then it may cause fluid build up in ear and infections. You can get an examination done from an ENT specialist for these possibilities.

Avatar n tn did was feel it and told me by feeling it see was sure ( either by it not moving or moving ) that is was not cancer but everyone is different. it has been two years i still get pain in my ear and sore throat. but i take some ibuprofen and it helps. Also i would put a heating pad behind my ear. but i was told some people just have them for life but u should really only do what your doc.
Avatar n tn I've been suffering from a sore throat for approx. 3 days and i have very swollen glads and lumps behind my ears and at the back of my head which are sore to touch. Any ideas what it could be??
Avatar m tn What could cause a knot/cyst behind my ear? I went to the doctor and she told my a lymthnode, but it has got bigger and more sore to touch. I have had an extreme increase in the amount of severe headaches I have been having. I do not know if that is related. I plan on making an appointment with an ear,nose, and throat doctor tomorrow. But I am becoming more concerned with the sheer size and pain it is causing.
Avatar n tn impacted wax, swimmer’s ear, middle ear infection, fungal infection of outer canal, boil in outer canal, pinched nerve, benign intracranial hypertension, blocked Eustachian tube as seen in cold and sinusitis etc. TMJ, sore throat and tooth ache can cause referred pain to ear. It is difficult to diagnose on net. Please consult an ENT specialist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn After that occured, for a number of hours yesterday I felt superb and thought I must have coughed up the culprit, or the infection. Then my symptoms started to come back, my right ear, sore throat, etc. Now my right side feels exactly the same way as when I was coughing hard. I can feel something that feels like a glob of mucus in my throat that will NOT come loose.
3123268 tn?1342176937 This is the jaw joint and inflammation of this joint can cause pain on opening the mouth and tenderness on palpation behind the ear. As you have had a recent throat infection, it could also be a lymph node enlargement. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn U have an enlarged right tonsils called acute or follicular tonsillitis. On examination we can confirm it. If u have pain while swallowing then confirm it. Also do u have any irritation in your throat or any cough or discomfort or cold. I prescribe on antibiotics, take amoxycillin+ clavulanic acid(Augmentin Duo) for 5 days(1-0-1) after food. Take 625 mg if u are an adult and if u are a child below 14, then take 375 mg. Do hot saline gargle and betadine gargles alternatively.
Avatar f tn I only had the pain on the right side of my throat when I swallowed that radiated to my right ear. The doctor put me on cephalexin for 10 days, by day 4 or 5 the sore throat was gone but I had severe swelling on my lower right gum area behind my last tooth. It hurt worse then the strep throat. I work in a hospital setting so I asked a doctor about it and he said the antibiotics should clear it up just fine, but gave me some lortab to get through the next couple days.
Avatar m tn Lymphoid follicles over the back of the throat (pharyngeal wall) Even though the bump over the base of the tongue and ulcer over the right tonsil are unrelated, the inflammation in either of these areas will cause you throat pain. The pain will definitely radiate to the ears because of the common innervations of the nerve supplying ear and the throat. The ulcer might be because of lowered immunity, stress, acidity, vitamin deficiency and medicines.
Avatar f tn She had extremely bloodshot eyes and a sore throat and ear pain. Her pediatrician ex her sd she had a virus. Then an ER trip suggested Kawasaki disease and white blood cell alarm in her urine. It was only day 4 of fever so we were sent home cuz she was hydrated.
