Lump in front of right eat
I have got a lump that has come up just in
Front of my right ear. It is quite painful and bigger than a pea. It's hard to the touch. I gave also had some problems getting my breathe and have used an inhaler, I thought my breathing was down to an allergy but can't understand why the lump has come up and hurts. Any ideas

Hey i don't think it is a lymphnode because we r talking about the outside of the jaw near the ear and I had 3 small bumps on my left side of my head 1 went away but the other two got smaller.

I had dental work done, a tooth pulled out and over years had pains in front of ear and shooting pains in head. Funny feeling behind eye and if vision is blurred but it isnt. Went to a Cranial Sacral Therapist/Osteopath and he found my jaw to be very badly out. TMJ can affect your WHOLE body, the nerves will affect your face, neck, back, pelvis even down to your feet. Jaw put back in which I didnt realise was out and told to wear a night guard and now problems are starting to get better. Eye prob still there but getting a littel better, only had one visit to Cranial Sacral Therapist so having a few more visits. AMAZING.. Please try it.

lump near front of ear
i have had a lump like this for over 10 years, about that time ago i had it become infected sort of thing, it was swollen painful could not lie on it. i had the doctor drain it, but it was always still there.
ive had a sinus infection recently and gum infection and it has decided not lay dormant anymore after all this time. these lumps formed years ago after taking ecstacy. by golly i have never taken those things for 6 years now :/ im abit worried it has decided to hurt and swell all of a sudden. as it never hurt at all, just was a lump deep in the skin, like a little m&m near my ear. unsure what it is... i know its related to the drug taking as there is similar cases, like scar tissue from jaw damage/ear or fatty deposit after toxins. but is it safe re cancer etc? help!!

Eldor, have you learned what your lump could be? Did you ever get it checked out? I noticed this was from 2008 so you must have checked it out by now right? Haha I have the exactly same symptoms as you. I have tmj and crack my jaw all the time. I have cracked it and it has become painful before but I don't remember where the pain was exactly, if it was where my lump is. It's hard but feels like you can move it a little. No pain when pushing it. It's just there and I'm nervous to what it could be! It also sinks in when I open my jaw. Please let me know if you have learned anything. Thank you!!

Krystensarks, I am also curious to what you all find out. I have the same thing in front of my right ear. The small lump disappears when I open my jaw. That part of my jaw also feels more sunken in where the lump is. I have not been diagnosed with TMJ but my jaw does pop often.

I have the exact same symptoms. Going to see my doctor next week. I've had it since last April and was told to see my dentist. Dentist said its being caused by the misalignment of my jaw and proceeded to try to sell my 5k worth of invisalign treatments.

Have you since had your lump evaluated?
