Have swollen lymph node behind ear when touched it feels like theres a hard ball in there not on any meds feeling well just got high prolactin levels?

Have swollen lymph node behind ear when touched it feels like theres a hard ball in there not on any meds feeling well just got high prolactin levels?

Location issue: If you are talking about right behind ear, there usually aren't major lymph node chains hanging out unless it is more in the neck region. Something that may feel like lymph node in the area may be blocked duct/follicle. Not sure if this has anything to do with high prolactin levels but this would not be typical. You can try warm compress as if this is a blocked follicle, may help. ...Read more

If cancer, how fast does a swollen lymph node grow? I've had one (0,5-1 cm) behind ear for 5 months. Rather soft & moveable. The Doct.says no worries?

Had a swollen lymph node on the side of my neck and small one behind ear for over 4 years. Not bothersome. Not growing. Normal blood tests. Cancer?

Not to worry: One can never rule out cancer unless the lymph node is biopsied. However a lymph node that is painless and not enlarging is most likely a reactive lymph node or calcified lymph node as a result of a prior infection in the area. If the lymph node enlarges or becomes painful I would advise you to have it examined by a physician. ...Read more
