Pain On Left Side Of Neck Under Ear
Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?
Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity. It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, I would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy. ...Read more
Left side headache top of head, facial/check pressure/pain, ear discomfort, tender left side neck and under ear? Could I have brain tumor?
Likely not tumor: Given your younger age and type of symptoms currently displayed, a brain tumor is less likely. It depends on the frequency and severity of symptoms, but you might consider requesting your doctor to order an MRI brain with and without contrast (it provides better detail of the brain than does the ct). Sinusitis might be a more plausible diagnosis in your case. ...Read more

I have a small lump on the left side of neck and it's located near left side of ear. It hurts at times and is increasing in size. What is this?
Access vs lymph node: If it is red and hot, then it may be an abscess or infection. It could also be a lymph node.

If you are feeling otherwise well, then it should be checked out, with possible labs, imaging and/or a biopsy. ...Read more

An ENT Doctor would be able to perform a therapeutic and diagnostic excisional biopsy of the area if warranted after an examination. Best wishes. ...Read more
