Lump Behind My Ear (Page 1)

I woke up 3 days ago with a lump behind my left upper ear its a size of a quarter and very painful it seems to be little bit red but not much and sometimes itches. It was so painful that I had to take tylenol, and when I touch it is worse. I hade some pennisilin in the house from a previos tooth infection so I started taking it yesterday I think its helping because I dont fill pain as much, only when I touch it now. Does anyone know what this is??? Im scared to go to the doctor plus I dont have insurance.... Thank you so much...

You both probably have sebaceous cysts that usually appear like soft, symmetrical bumps near the hair line, neck, skull. This is not serious and you can get rid of them if you visit dermatologist.

my poor daughter
my 5 year old daughter has had a lump in her neck for a few months now that is getting larger by the day. it is now 4-5 inch. and extends from behind her ear down to almost her collar bone and comes off her neck about 1 inch. she complain about severe pain in her neck and that is it. i have taken her in to see a doctor twice and they tell me she has an ear infection but she never complains about anything but her neck. i am very concerned and think that it could be a bigger problem, and get discouraged every time i take her in because they always pawn the problem off as an ear infection after looking at her for only about 1 minute. please tell me what i can do so that my baby does not have to suffer any longer.

Hard medium size lump behind ear
I found a medium sized lump between my ear and the hairline, a day later i noticed i have another one about a cm into my hairline feels smaller but both lumps are hard and not soft like the lumps i have read about above. They also dont hurt to touch but i do get a weird sensation when i do touch it but not painfull. I am very worried what this could be.

Hey, I'm Nikki. I'm 13 and this happened to me, too. Or, is happening. I noticed the lump behind my ear 6 months ago, and told my mom. She said that it should go away in a few days.It didn't go away. I told her again a few months later. Same reply. I noticed it did not go away or change in size (well, as far as i can tell). Mom will not take me to a doctor, and my friend thinks it's a tumor. Do you know if that's true, being that you posted this 3 years ago?

TO LUVLINES26
Please please have your daughter checked, i've experienced the same problem, i discovered a lump in my throat, i had an ultrasound done which showed a tumor on my thyriod, i then had a biopsy which came back negative, but i know that i was have health issues and insteaded on second biopsy which came back negative again, the doctors said just leave it alone but i could feel that the lump had increased in size and insteaded on having the lump removed, after the surgury i was told it was cancer of the thyriod and the entire thyriod had to be removed not only that but they discovered that there was four lumps 2 that were 4cm and the there 2 were about 2-2.5 cm big these tumor were not discovered on the ultrasound,and i had radition and after a year was recovering only to rediscover more growth in ther same area and again i had surgery which was 8.5 hours long and this time they removed over 28 lumps of all sizes, anything that looks cancerous they removed, and again i had radition and this past dec again the tests didn't look good and again i had radition to kill off any cancer there might be growing, this has been a five year ordeal for me, and now i've discovered a lump behind my right ear which is why i was reading the blogs on this sight and now again i will instead on more tests, i know that if i hadn't insteaded over and over again the first surgery and the second surgery never would have happened and i would most likeily be dead because the tests were wrong but i knew that i am not well and wanted answers, you luvline26 please instead over and over until you have some answers cause the doctors wouldn't fight for your daughter and you have to fight for your daughter, i'm sorry if i've scared you with my story but i just had to let you know that i think that your daughter's story seems similar to what i had, i'll pray for your daughter's good health.

I also found a strange lump hat is under the skin on the bottom left side of my head. It is right on the bone of the skull and was tender. I was also reading some of the blogs and am worried too. I am going to my doctor tomorrow and I will let you know what I am told. I have also been having sweating when I am sleeping and have never had this before I wonder if its related. Either way I am going to the doctor becasue I am very worried.

Painful lump behind ear
Hi everyone lumped together....lol I found a hard painful lump behind my right ear a couple of nights ago, at first it freaked me out, but then I stopped worrying about it until tonight, I started thinking that it may have something to do with me having the right side and middle part of my thyroid removed....could it be the result of that and should I be worrying about it? I had the surgery about 3 and half years ago and I have also had significant weight gain but have had my thyroid tested, and they said that my left side of my thyroid is working fine.....I am just a little concerned at this time. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, I am all ears and then some = )

Bump behind ear........been there for months
I've been dating the same man for about 8 months. He's had a lump behing his ear that he's been picking and squeezing at (not infront of me....I yell at him) for as long as I've known him. Just the other day he ended up in the hospital because the lump became infected and he got seriously sick. He now is wating for the antibiotics to take effect, and the ear doctor has given him no diagnosis. I've read different things and I worry what it could be......any ideas?
