A Lump Under The Ear That Doesn’t Hurt?
Night, under my ear there is a small lump the size of a green bean seeds, but if held it does not hurt. What is that lump? Is it a serious illness? R nThanks😊
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Lumps around the ear may originate from enlarged lymph nodes (KGB). KGB is spread in all parts of the body and functions as the body's defense system against external microorganisms because it contains many immune cells inside. KGB in the facial area is in the lower jaw, around the ear, and the back hairline. Normally KGB is small and not palpable, and will enlarge locally if there is an inflammatory process in the organs around the enlarged KGB.
KGB enlargement around the ear can be caused by problems in organs including:
3. Skin or scalp
KGB enlargement is not a disease diagnosis but only a symptom. For this reason it is necessary to know the cause of the condition and what treatment is appropriate. In the enlargement of the KGB which is not caused by malignant conditions, the KGB will again shrink if the causative factors are handled.
Consult with your doctor to assess the possible causes of the condition so that treatment can be given more directed.
Get enough rest and eat healthy food to restore the body's immunity to fight infection from the surrounding environment.
That's all, hope it helps
