Get needle biopsy: Usually a firm lump under the ear will be salivary gland tumor of some type. Firm nodes are always suspicious. Would suggest needle biopsy of the lump if for no other reason than peace of mind. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: You have 2 lumps "right side of neck". Lumps that can be felt in the neck region are usually prominent lymph nodes which are part of your immune system. Infection, trauma, & cancers can cause them to enlarge with or without pain. However, a prominent node can be a benign finding. You should have your doctor take a look to provide the correct diagnosis and for reassurance if no treatment is needed. ...Read more

Neck mass: The only definitive diagnosis of any mass is to have it biopsied. There are lymph chains in your neck area, so depending on where it is, it may be simply a benign lymphadenopathy, but again, as stated, the only definitive diagnosis is made by biopsy. An ENT Doctor would be able to perform a therapeutic and diagnostic excisional biopsy of the area if warranted after an examination. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have tenderness on both sides of my neck below my ear what is this?

I have tenderness on both sides of my neck below my ear what is this?

Muscles, lymph nodes: I suspect it's either the muscles of your neck or mildly irritated/inflamed superficial cervical lymph nodes - especially if you've been sick recently. I recommend to my pt's to try some Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) first, give it a few days and then see me if its not improving. Best of luck. ...Read more
