Hey I really need help! I have had lymph nodes behind my ear for a year now! They now hurt when I touch them but are not super hard... Do I need to go to the doctor for this? Should I be concerned? Please be blunt with me! Thanks

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Lymph nodes behind ear are mostly ear related and suggest a chronic middle ear infection. We call that otitis media. You need to see an otorhinolaryngologist and let them have a look.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
