A lump behind the ear can be caused by several possible causes, including:
Enlargement of lymph nodes, often occurs simultaneously with an infectious process, whether viral or bacterial, pustules, cysts, lipomas, tuberculosis, malignant glands of the gland. Enlarged lymph nodes often occur simultaneously with infection and when the infection is complete, it will shrink again. Therefore, it is necessary to treat the underlying cause. Further check your child's condition to the pediatrician to find out the exact cause and also carry out additional necessary tests such as blood tests, etc. Also pay attention if the lump:
continues to grow and does not shrink for more than 2 weeks accompanied by other symptoms such as weight loss Some things as initial treatment:
keep an eye on the need for breast milk and food intake for your child, avoid eating snacks with seasonings, avoid squeezing or massaging the lumps, treat the underlying disease, for example, if there is a fever, cough, runny nose, etc.
