Ear Pain: The lumps you have noticed are most likely swollen "glands" or lymph nodes. These enlarge and can be painful when you are fighting an infection. The ear pain with the location of the swollen lymph nodes sounds suspicious for an ear infection. I recommend ibuprofen 400mg every 6-8 hours for the pain and seeing a doctor tomorrow to check your ear and throat. ...Read more

I have 3 red lumps on my chin2 on bottom lip clear liquid comes out itches feels tight have got sore lump in throat under chin in centre hard 2 swallow?

Sounds infectious: Although it is very hard to determine what a rash is without seeing it, it sounds like you are describing a viral infection. The little lumps with clear fluid are probably blisters, and the lump under the chin is probably an enlarged lymph node from the rash. The most likely virus would be herpes simplex, which is the virus that causes recurrent cold sores. I suggest a visit to be seen for this. ...Read more

Surgeon or Derm.: Ask your dentist or primary care physician. Give them more details on the history of the mass (es) and any symptoms associated with them. They will probably send you to an oral surgeon or dermatologist depending on their clinical findings. It's good that it hasn't changed much (usually that suggests it's benign). Could be a number of different things. ...Read more

The lump on neck changes in size often. Thinking it's a trigger point? Thoughts?

It depends: A trigger point is the presence of tiny knots along a muscle fiber and when pressed may causes severe pain (jump sign). If you are saying a non painful lump on your neck and there is no limitation on your range of motion. It is unlikely to be a trigger point. Have it checked by your doctor. ...Read more
