I've got 2 of them: I've got 2 of these things in the same place as you since age 9. They didn't turn out to be anything hazardous or important...wouldn't you agree? They are common and can be anything from a calcific lymph node to a small benign bony growth called an exostosis or osteoma. All harmless. By all means have it checked out though. Or if you'd like to show me one: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafiSee 1 more doctor answer
I hurt with swollen and achy joints all over. All my joints are swollen and very painful. Sore neck w tender lumps along neck going down behind ear right under under skull. Felt this way since saturday march 10. Not going away, .
I: I recommend, you should consult your primary care physician so that you can be checked properly and if necessary he can order some tests and also refer you to specialist if necessary. Tender lumps may be lymph nodes because of some infection but please you need to be checked by the physician to be on safe side.
7 yr old son woke up with dime sized bump on skull behind ear. Very sore to the touch, hard not squishy. Couldn't find evidence of a bug bite. Doctor?
Lymph gland: Sounds like an inflammed lymph gland. This can happen in response to recent infection in the area. You could first apply heat to it and observe if it gets larger and remains tender. Sometimes these glands get infected and swell. Call your doctor if not improving with heat and observation
Doctor can examine: Bumps are hard to figure out without an exam. Sometimes, they appear and disappear for unknown reasons. Bumps may be ok if there is no pain, oozing, bleeding, itching, etc... Otherwise, the causes may be irritant or allergic (something touched the area), or may be from blocked pores, blocked glands, irritated follicles, etc... A doctor can look at the bumps to help get a diagnosis.

Mgt: I would recommend an evaluation with dermatology. There are pediatric conditions which may cause these findings. Does he have any skin rashes or lesions? Is he developing and growing normally?

I got a hard lump at my lower skull behind my ear, not painful when touched, got fever last night, light headaches, ?
Swollen lymph: Gland with a fever and headache may indicate infection - viral or bacterial. You can observe for now and do supportive management- bed rest, plenty of fluids, fever and pain medicine as needed. You may be coming down with a throat infection, sinus infection or viral illness. I if condition worsened, you need to see your doctor.

Should be checked: This is not usual so it should be checked by your child's doctor.
Hard lump behind ear was told it was a lymph node. Hasn't grown but hasn't gotten smaller. I lost 6-7 lbs in last 3 months. Do I need to be concerned?
Below: You need to be seen and have the "node" rechecked. The weight loss is concerning and needs to be evaluated.
Lipoma: Lipomas, a fatty tumor are common in this location as well as a few other tumors. Has the lump been present for some time or rapidly developing recently? If rapid, get an evaluation by an ENT specialist fairly soon. If it has been there for some time, you can probably ignore it if it does not bother you and is not changing.
Hopefully: It will resolve without intevention. You may have a swollen lymph node or cyst that may or maynot be infected. If it doesn't resolve - get it checked.
Either or see a doc: It could be either a lymph node and that will explain the tenderness and mass effect it could be an oil gland cyst what is called sebaceous cyst that could get hard like a solid mass and it could get infected and turn to abscess like structure either way you need to see your doctor for evaluation and proper treatment at least with antibiotic before the infection spread good luck
