My girlfriend has some kind of growth behind her ear. she first noticed it 3 years ago but was told it was nothing to worry about. That it was only a calcium deposit. Then it was about the size of a penny. It was as hard as a bone that bulges out.

Now this growth has grown to be bigger than a quarter, bulges out even more, and still bone-hard. There is no discoloration. This "thing" gives her a subtle but constant pressure that causes pain and headaches.

If anyone knows anything about this or has something related to this, PLEASE let me know. Any kind of information will be most appreciated.
