Hi Khaswati....

Thank you for your question.

The condition experienced by your child at this time with the main complaint in the form of a lump around the ear, most often caused by swollen lymph nodes, which is generally triggered because the body is experiencing a certain disease or infection.

The following are some conditions that can trigger swollen lymph nodes, especially around the ear, including: inflammation of the tonsils, ear infections, dental and oral health problems, inflammation of the throat, tuberculosis or tuberculosis, cancer.

However, apart from the things mentioned above, a lump around the ear can also be caused by: lipoma === fat cells that grow excessively, abscess === collection of pus in the skin, cyst === pouch containing fluid in the skin.

If it is an Swollen lymph node. Then you don't have to worry too much. The lump will deflate by itself if your child's body is healthy / fit.

Basically, if the lump doesn't deflate for more than a month, then we suggest that you immediately see a pediatrician, and discuss this problem, so that your child can be carried out a series of further examinations, and finally the appropriate treatment can be given.

Thus the explanation that we can convey, may be useful.

Regards,

Dr. Teak
