Swollen lymph nodes but no infection doc says, on amtrymitline for headaches, but what is hard lump behind jaw under ear if I have no infection?

Lymph node: You probably have a lymph nose on the mastoid process. A bony part behind the ear. Have an ENT look at it. They will sort the problem out. Good luck! ...Read more

Small hard lump under right ear behind lower jaw. Have had it for at least 5 years now. What could cause this and what affordable ways could treat it?

Many things: It could be a cyst, tumor, swollen lymph node, etc. Get a referral from your dr. For this to be biopsied, and removed properly. The fact it's been there for 5 yr leads me to believe it is not too serious, but get it removed. ...Read more

Neck mass: Se an ENT as this could be a sebaceous cyst, a lymph node or parotid gland neoplasm, among other things. It warrants an exam and possibly imaging, followed by a biopsy or removal of the mass. ...Read more

Hi , I have a grape sized lump under my left ear right behind my jaw bone. I am gauging my ears, & that ear is sore, so could it be just a infection?

Hi , I have a grape sized lump under my left ear right behind my jaw bone. I am gauging my ears, & that ear is sore, so could it be just a infection?

Yes: It could be "just an infection", but this should be evaluated by your doctor and treated appropriately. If you were concerned that this lump might be a cancer that seems improbable, but a doctor needs to see it and feel it to be certain what it is likely to be due to. ...Read more

On amtrymitline for headaches, hard lump under ear behind jaw for 6 months but doc says no infection. Blood tests fine and dentist says teeth ok too?

Continue diagnosis: Ruling out possible causes is the art of diagnosis. Knowing what it isn't is the pathway to figuring out what it is. No infection means other possibilities need to be considered, for example many people have benign fatty tumors called lipomas that sometimes present this way. Continue with your physician or find one interested in getting to the bottom of your concern for the best result. ...Read more
