Lumps need to be: Evaluated by your doctor. He/she can identify or rule things out. Glad you are not having discomfort but don't let that stop you from getting to the root of this situation. Peace and good health.

Doctor should check: Most people get a headache at some time, such as from colds, infections, lack of sleep, too much driving, long hours on the computer, stress at work, etc... A bad or increasing headache, recurrent headache, weird headache, or with other worrisome symptoms should be evaluated now. A person can write down a diary of symptoms to show her doctor.

If it worries you: There are thousands of lymph node located around the body.Many in the neck, head, behind the ear are prominent as they are not buried deep in tissue . At rest these are often 1/4 inch in diameter and may grow to marble sized when reacting to a stimulus. Bug bites, or viral infections can increase their size to 1 cm or more.Most will shrink down to pre-stimulated size over 3-4 wks.
