My right ear lobe is numb and my hearing from that ear is very foggy. Could it be a tumor? I am 57 years old. Female.

My right ear lobe is numb and my hearing from that ear is very foggy. Could it be a tumor? I am 57 years old. Female.

See your doctor: You should go to see an ear nose throat doctor and have yourself checked. In adiditon to clinical examination, an auditory evaluation will be done and if indicated an MRI should be considered. Hearing problem can happen due to differen causes such as problem with the ear canal (ear wax etc), conduction problem through the bone, ear drum, nerve etc. A tumor should also be ruled out. Go to see md.

Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

May or may not be: It takes time and follow up CT scans to see if these tumors are growing in size. If they are not tumors (cancer) it will remain unchanged in size over a period of 3-6 months. A biopsy may be required to confirm it in case these lesions are increasing in size (growing bigger). They are too small to do a biopsy now, need to be at least 1Cm or bigger.

What are common symptoms of a frontal lobe tumor?

What are common symptoms of a frontal lobe tumor?

Personality changes: The frontal lobe is known to give us our personality traits. In the case of a tumor any disruption in this area of the brain changes in the person's behavior and personality may be seen. However this largely depends on the size and specific area and also the resulting destruction of the brain by that tumor.

Is it possible to get tinnitis and severe symptoms from a foreign object stuck in my ear lobe?

Anything is, but. .: A foreign body in your ear lobe would not be expected to produce tinnitus or change in hearing. I don't know what you mean by severe symptoms. Anything is possible, but tinnitus and a process on your ear lobe are not likely to be related.

Local infection: Could be a local infection, especially if sensitive to touch. Warm compress can help it come to a head. Keep area clean and it should diminish with time. If not, see your MD!

Cysts: Most cysts are benign. Have your doctor follow them for size and consistency, but if they remain unchanged don't be concerned. If they grow or persist, your doctor may do a biopsy, just to be sure that it is benign.

If I had a tumor in my inner ear, what would the symptoms be? Would a ear infec. With roaring& some dizziness be it? Would it be constant?

If I had a tumor in my inner ear, what would the symptoms be? Would a ear infec. With roaring& some dizziness be it? Would it be constant?

Hearing & Balance: Tumors of the inner ear are not common. The most common tumor of the ear would be an acoustic neuroma which is benign and not cancer. Most present with hearing loss - usually gradual but can be sudden. Tinnitus (abnormal sound in the ear) is possible as well. Dizziness is a very uncommon presenting symptom because these tumors usually grow very slowly the body compensates for the loss of balance.

? sebaceous cyst?: You should have your PCP or a dermatologist look at this.... it may be a lymph node, or it may be a gland in the skin that gets inflamed and infected on and off (a sebaceous cyst). Your parotid gland is IN FRONT of your ear, so I doubt it is a problem with that. But having a doctor examine it is your best course of action. They will probably want to biopsy it or excise it.

Infected cyst: You have what sounds like an infected cyst. This could be related to a piercing if you have had that. At any rate you should have this seen and treated soon.

I had a normal MRI of the head. Would that have shown any tumors that could cause symptoms in ear? (i.e. pressures, whooshing sound when swallow)

I had a normal MRI of the head. Would that have shown any tumors that could cause symptoms in ear? (i.e. pressures, whooshing sound when swallow)

Maybe: MRI of the brain looks at the brain and would show most brain masses. Small lesions in the ear and internal auditory canal may be missed unless an MRI that focuses in on the ear is performed using a smaller field of view. Talk to your doctor.

Cyst: This bump is probably an uninflamed cyst....However, you should have it verified by a dermatologist. You may or may not want to have it surgically removed. You want to be sure that is all it is. Depending on the size and if it's growing you may decide to remove it.

Anxiety: You are on at least 2 anti-depressants but do not have anxiety or depression listed under your "conditions"? why? We can't offer you helpful answers if you don't provide helpful information. Given your recent negative CT, your headache may be neurogenic, vascular or psychogenic. It is highly unlikely that you have a "tumor". Please consult your mental health provider.

I feel pressure on left side of my head near my ear and right above sideburn. I am not having any symptoms of brain tumor. What is it?

TMJ?: A diagnosis cannot be made without an exam. However, this sounds like this may be related to you temporal mandibular joint (tmj). An ear issue cannot be excluded. This would require an exam by your doctor for a diagnosis.

A palpable, non-moving protrusion from top-back of my skull (parietal lobe) of size 3 cc. No headaches or other symptoms. Could it be a tumor?

A palpable, non-moving protrusion from top-back of my skull (parietal lobe) of size 3 cc. No headaches or other symptoms. Could it be a tumor?

Could be anything: I'd be interested to know if this is new or something you had all your life. Could be as simple as a bony protrusion of your skull that has been there from the beginning but any new lump that persists or grows should be evaluated by a physician. Have it checked and best to you.
