Pain In The Back Of My Head Behind Ear
What to do if I have a severe pain on the back of my head behind my left ear. Could it be a lymph node?
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

If you feel around you should find several the size of a pea ; sometimes bigger. They can increase to the size of a big peanut if stimulated by local factors, illness or vaccines. I would just monitor it or have doc see it during regular visit.
