Eustachian tube: The eustachian tube opens with yawn or swallow and contracting palate. When the eustachian tube is swollen due to sinus congestion, allergies, virus', pressure changes or with cerumen (wax) impaction in ear canal, stuffy sensation can occur. This is treated with nasal steroid spray, decongestant and gentle autoinsufflation of ears (pinch nose and blow). See physician with persistent symptoms. ...Read more

I found a painful red lump with black head in my armpit. Squezzed it and it discharged hard white stuff. What should I do?

It is likely to recurr after squeezing and usually needs excision to get rid of it. Consult your doctor, dermatologist or plastic surgeon to be sure. ...Read more

Stuffed ears: It is natural for your ears to feel stuffed up when you are congested b/c the eustachian tubes (that connect your middle ear to the upper part of your throat) are swollen and not letting your ears maintain a normal pressure.

Node or osteoma: A hard bump could be a lymph node but these usually are mobile. Sometimes the bone behind the ear (mastoid) is not smooth so may feel bumpy. If it sits right behind the ear lobe it could either be a part of the second cervical vertebra or a parotid salivary tumor which can be firm and slow growing. If it is enlarging I suggest it should be evaluated. ...Read more
Cerumen impaction: This is likely secondary to cerumen (wax) impaction. Of course other possibilities such as infection need to be ruled out as well. You should see your PCPS for disimpaction. ...Read more

Lymph node vs cyst: Lump under your ear could represent a periauricular node (lymph node around ear) or a simple skin cyst/gland. If you have ear pain, perhaps swimmer's ear and lump is painful, then it most likely represents swollen lymph node. Painful lump w/o ear infection could be due to boil/pimple aka clogged cyst/gland. Regardless, if lump persists, see your Family Doc or ENT for evaluation. ...Read more
