Answer I have this exact same problem- I have a lump on my head behind my right ear and I recently noticed another lump on my actual head also on the right side. … If we have the same problem, and from searching on the internet, lots of other people seem to have it too, then I doubt it is serious. When my doctor examined the one behind my ear he told me it was only a swollen lymph node. I might go back soon though, as I have had it for a long time now (6 months to a year possibly). Good luck! I'm sure it will be ok.
Could be anything. Could be a muscle knot, could be a cyst, could be a benign growth of tissue, could be worse. Could be something else. Get to a doctor. You need someon…e with experience to examine it. It could be a bone spur.
Answer They can be mineral deposits from your body (mine were caused by caffine) or something more serious; See you doctor. = A…nswer == They could be swollen lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are grouped together along lymph vessels throughout the body. There are a few places in the neck that have a cluster of these nodes. If you've been sick recently, then they are more than likely swollen lymph nodes. These nodes serve to filter out toxins and infection as these things circulate through the body. If a great deal of immune waste is filtered through one particular area, that area becomes congested with filtered material. This presents as lumps along a chain, because these nodes are along a lymph vessel pathway. These nodules will dissappear in time, no treatments needed. If you want to speed things up, you can look on the internet for lymph massage techniques, in which you can strip the congestion out by stroking the area in the direction of natural lymph flow. If you have not been sick lately, then it's important to get this looked at. There are other possibilities, but don't worry yourself...this is a very common finding.
probably an enlarged lymph node caused by an infection, a malignant tumor, or in really rare cases by cancer. I'm not a medical expert though so definitely get it checked out …by your doctor.
Answer i get a small lump under my ear when i have an infection, lymph nodes (sp) get inflamed.
What is a small soft tissue lump on the right side of your neck about three inches down and to the left of your ear and could it be lymph nodes in that area and should you be worried?
See a doctor and get a proper diagnosis. Answer It could be anything from a harmless cyst to a lymph node. Our lymph nodes are everywhere in …our bodies and in some individuals these lymph nodes are working harder as a filtering system in your body. My girlfriend had two swollen lymph nodes under her chin and they were removed and not cancerous! People with many allergies can get this. It's best to let a specialist look at this lump. Don't be afraid as it's usually nothing that can't be fixed.
it could be swollen glands.
where exactly is the lump ,roughly how big is it ,is it sore does it feel hard or squashy is it the only lump on that side of the body or is it on both sides of the neck regar…ds t if it is a hard small lump i would suggest it could be a ganglian lump of gristle attached to ligaments . if it is hard to the touch i would also expect this .on the other hand if the lump is quite bigger and squidgy and you have had a viral infection etc your glands could be enlarged . but also if the lump has got gradually larger over a long period of time and maybe includes enlarged lumps under your armpits as well and maybe loss of weight and tiredness and night sweats then it could be more serious and should be making an appointment with your gp at the very least regards tracey
It is more than likely it is cancerous. And can be treated only be seeing a vet. Mine had the same problem.
Possibly a lymph node, but have it checked by a pediatrician.
Your mom. No, seriously. Probably a cyst or a pimple. Maybe she's got too much back fat. Or maybe you need to be a little bit more descriptive about the type of lump =…D

It is most likely just a swollen lymph node, especially if you are or have recently benn sick, even with a simple cold. If it is there for more than a few weeks, you sho…uld probably visit your doctor, as there is a possibility that it is lymphatic cancer.
Starting today I noticed a lump the size of a dime on the back of the right side of my neck about an inch below my ear it makes the right side feel tender Im only 17 and in good shape.?
Well it could be nothing. It coil have something to do with you're theiroid.

A normal healthy person, should not have a lump on the side of his neck. Can you be more specific about yoursymptoms and what it looks like? When did you discover it, wh…at were you doing at the time of discovery? How long has it been there? Is it move-able or fixed? Is there discoloration? Is there pain? Has it changed in appearance or size over time? Do you have any underlying medical conditions? What types of medications do you take?
