Ear infection went 2 week ago but lymph node behind ear still swolen maybe pea size or bigger but some times cant feel it at all?how ong til node goes

It's ok

Head-ear
The node can take months to disappear, and once enlarged, it may never disappear. Pea size is nothing to worry about. Doctors usually don't get concerned until it is larger than a grape.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

Does ovarian cancer cause lymph node behind ear to get really big?

Not likely

Ear
Ovarian cancer spreads to the pelvic lymph nodes and peritoneum, i.e., the lining of the abdomen. A single enlarged retro-auricular lymph node is not likely to be due to ovarian cancer.

Dr. David Roberts answered:

What could be the cause of burning sensation in lymph node behind ear near jaw and some ringing in that ear from time to time?

Possible infection

Bursitis
Lymph nodes are localized groups of white cells that are designed to attack foreign tissue, especially infections. When activated, there can be a burning sensation to the surrounding tissues. Ringing in the ear is a non specific symptom, but may be associated with inflammation and infection. Best to have this checked out.

Can Tonsilitis cause your tongue to swell? And can you have Tonsilitis without fever? Throat hurts and swollen lymph node behind ear

Tonsilitis & tongue

Pharynx
Tonsillitis is a term to describe swollen tonsils. The tonsils swell to help fight off infection. The tongue may also swell in the presence of bacterial or viral infection. A newer concern regarding tonsillitis has to due with sleep apnea. Tonsillitis can obstruct your airway and should be evaluated for size once the infection is gone.

Have lymph node behind ear is enlarged to about the size of a pea..doesn't hurt , also have an abscessed tooth on same side, infection or cancer?

Likely infectious

Cancer
If the abscess is on the same side as the lymph node, it's likely related. However, if the infection in the tooth resolves and the lymph node doesn't then a thorough ENT examination is indicated. Lymph nodes in this area can arise from numerous processes in the Head and Neck.

Painful lymph node behind the ear.

Likely infection

Ear
There are a number of conditions which cause lymph node enlargement, with infection being the most common cause. Behind the ear nodes can come from the ear, the skin, teeth and possibly sinuses. Take some ibuprofen (if it's safe for you) and if the node persists, seeks care.
