Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old male. I have had a hard lump behind my right ear for years now...at least 4 or 5. It feels like part of my skull but it is not on the left side of my head so i know that it's not. I asked my doctor about it when i was younger and he said it was a swollen lymph node and should go away at some point. It never did, however, it also never caused me any discomfort so i never got it looked at again.

Avatar f tn I am worried about the lump behind my ear which ive discovered since year 1986. I am now 53 years old and Ive consulted doctors about this. They said its a parotid gland tumor and is not cancerous. When i look at the internet about the picture of the parotid gland it is located in front of the ear and not at the back. Please clarify me on this. The lump is 2 cms in diameter. In 1986, it was a size of a small pea and is still flat. It is located behid the lower back of my left ear.
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago, I noticed a small sore lump half way down my neck, on the side just behind the right ear. After a few days it stopped hurting, but the hard immovable lump stayed (about the width of 2 fingertips). Then, a couple of days ago, I woke up at 3-4am and felt another sore spot, this time more on the front and a little closer to the collarbone, but still on the right side. This is still sore to touch.
Avatar n tn Today it is on the left front cheek and is so swollen that my cheek is hard and tender and swollen from my jawbone to my cheekbone. There is no small lump, but a quarter sized lump in between my ear and front teeth. But when the front swells up it doesn't go away for a couple days. I brush and gargle multiple times a day, drink a lot of water and have actually been on antibiotics 2 times in recent months for congestion,etc. I massage the affected area to try push any plug out.

Avatar n tn I woke up one morning with small swollen bumps behind roof of my mouth right under my two front teeth. The day after day symptoms of gum disease started to appear, swollen gums and gums that easily bled while brushing. Then one of the bumps erupted and the second bump grew. The tissue above my mouth is sore and don't seem to be healing properly. I finally went to the dentist and she said I had gum disease and she told me to clean properly and floss daily to stop infection.

Avatar f tn This past monday I noticed a lump develop on the hard palate of my mouth just behind the dental ridge. I thought nothing of it until 2 days later the glands in my throat were swollen, I just didn't feel well and the lump began to radiate severe pain throughout my upper mouth, teeth and nose. I was called in some antibiotics by a doctor after giving symptoms over the phone. I attributed to being dental issue since i had been diagnosed with gum disease while I was pregnant last year.
Avatar n tn He has very crooked teeth, adn recently had 2 teeth grow out from behind his 2 front teeth, (basically throught the roof of his mouth).

86664 tn?1291557795 t have gingivitus and had my teeth cleaned 3 months ago when the hygienist remarked that my gums looked great except for some receeding near a permanent retainer on my bottom front teeth. All of a sudden my bottom gum on the backside below my front teeth is red, inflamed, and feels like it has a big swollen lump. My dentist says maybe some food got caught below the gum and tried to dig some out of there. This is excrutiatingly painful and making my whole lower jaw/teeth throb.
Avatar n tn i have this small red lump on my gums.. just above my front teeth.. it doesn't really hurt when i touch it, but im just curious about what it is.

Avatar m tn Less then a week ago, I noticed a small lump behind my jaw in front of my ear, and today I noticed in addition to the small sound lump, the area surrounding it seemed swollen and stiff, painfull to the touch, I am concerned that it might be cancer, but I do not have health insurance....can someone help me figure out what is wrong?
Avatar n tn What I have is a mild to moderate sore / sensitive / toothachey feeling in the top left front tooth and sometimes a painful feeling in the gums behind the two top front teeth where they meet the gums. The best way I can describe that feeling is like the gums are pulled away from the teeth a little, but I can't actually see anything wrong when I look behind the teeth using a mirror. I'm not sure if the pain is coming from directly behind the teeth or in between them.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend got the flu this past week and with that he got swollen gums and what looks like canker sores on the inside of his bottom lip and on his tounge and behind his front upper teeth have swollen patches...along with this he has a sore throat and he has problems talking and eating...what could have caused this??
Avatar n tn A part of my gums is swollen and red. There are black specks on it. I don't know what it is. It's located beside my front teeth behind them. I tried looking it up but all i got was sexual diseases such as herpes. I have never had intercourses so it can't be that. What is going on?
