Question cut off: Please resubmit and insure that the actual question is included.
Occipital neuralgia: The common symptom is suboccipital pain radiating to the back of the head and occasionally down the back of the neck. Tenderness over the greater and lesser occipital nerves is common. During severe episodes, the pain may be felt in the retro-orbital and behind the ear. Although the attacks may be bilateral, one side usually predominates. Rec.:see an orofacial pain or pain management specialist.

You can ask but: You can ask but unlikely. I'd be more worried about surgeon losing concentration with awake patient. Tumor very very close to facial nerve. Risk of facial paralysis. You are safer doing the procedure under general anesthesia than you are driving to the hospital for the procedure. Best bet: Have the procedure done using the protocol that the surgeon is most comfortable with.
Sebaceous cysts: Many people have these cysts, which develop in the earlobes and behind the ears. They are oily, containing sebum, and sometimes can get infected. If you're able to express and drain them on your own, I would not be too concerned. If you develop a large one or it becomes infected, then sometimes surgical removal is necessary.
Lump on face near ear lobe, moves slightly, rash behind ear, hurts a bit when touched. Is this serious?
Reactive node: The lump is most likely a reactive lymph node that tends to enlarge from pea sized to bean sized when stimulated by such things as skin rashes/bug bites/viruses &the like. They usually stay enlarged while stimulated &recede when not. Takes 3-4 weeks to settle down. Your doc can confirm this.
Tender bump in the crease behind ear lobe, no head. Cyst or boil? Seems to be just under skin surface.
Hard immobile painful lymph node in back of head above hair line and another right behind ear lobe. Both are painful. Possible causes?
Small painless hard lump behind ear lobe on neck about 4wks. Came when earlobe was infected. Lobe ok now but lump still there and remains same size.
Lymph node: Most likely a lymph node which was inflamed initially, could be something else as well, like a lipoma, cyst etc plz make sure with your doctor.
Tender lump in crease behind ear right where the lobe connects to cartilage. Is there a node there? Or more likely a cyst?
Sebaceous cyst: This is the most common lesion at that location. It may require surgical excision if it gets infected or enlarges.
Keep dry and clean:
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by secretions but if you are having drainage from a cyst that ruptured or a pierced ear that is oozing fluid, I'd say first off keep the area dry and clean. Soap and warm water, pat dry. If the area looks red, warm, and painful, it could be infected. In this case, it would be reasonable to get seen at a walk in clinic. Hope this helps
I have a small, painful lump behind both ear lobes. They don't hurt outright, but they hurt to touch. Is this serious?
Hard to say: These could be lymph nodes or cysts or infected/clogged follicles or even something else. Since it's bilateral - as in on both sides - lymph nodes are more likely the culprit. To be sure you should seek an in person evaluation. Hope this helps.
Hello Sir, I have a rock hard node 1/2 inch behind my left ear lobe. It will not move and it has been there a year. 3X/yr I am also getting cysts.
Evaluation: You will need an evaluation of this mass to see if it s also a cyst or something else. Hope this helps.
Lump: Could be a parotid gland mass. See ENT
