It depnds on its siz: You should monitor the size of your lymph gland. If it is less than 1.5 cm, it may not be anything to worry about. But if it is getting bigger and gets to be 2 cm or larger, then you should consult your doctor, as a biopsy may be desirable to find the cause. Nothing immediately to worry about, but check if it is growing over the next 1-2 months or not..

See an ENT: Something is causing the hissing sound.. Most probably some toxin, pathogen or allergen present somewhere in the head, possibly the ears or TM joints. Rule out any issue with Migraine.
