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

Continue diagnosis

Head-jaw
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.

V hard lump on neck,under ear behind jaw,comes & goes. Not v painful but aware of.On amtrymitline for headaches.Seen dentist & doc all blood work ok??

Neck mass

Head-jaw
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

I have a lump behind my right jaw bone just below my ear lobe and its kind of painful what could it be?

Lymph node or gland

Could be a swollen lymph node or a swollen parotid salivary gland. If it is tender it may be infected and you should see a doctor.

I have a grape-sized lump in my neck below my ear, just behind my jaw. It moves when I push it around. What is it? Should I be concerned?

Swollen lymph node

This is likely a swollen lymph node, a sign of an infection.

Lymph node

It's probably an enlarged lymph node but could be other things as well. Get it checked out to ensure it's ok.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

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

Head-jaw
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.

I have small lump behind ear near jaw my neck Burns my ears Burns it feels like my head is wet. My neck hurts when i turn it to the rgt. Any idea?

Lumps

Head
Lumps in the neck need to be evaluated by a surgeon. Many are infectious and are lymph nodes which may react to local ear or tooth infections. But some are more ominous and need careful evaluation and following. Depending on how long present, anything more than 2 weeks means a complete exam.

I woke up with a lump behind my ear at the jaw. It has been burning. soar throat. Times of burning throw out my body. Burning in ear. No ear infection?

See your doctor

Head-jaw
Lump behind the ear, sore throat, ear burning suggest active inflammation if not infection. Throat infections can cause these symptoms. You should see your doctor. An examination is essential for diagnosis.

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.
