Si, I want to ask.rnI am still 17 years old, today, when I woke up, I felt something strange under my ear. It turned out that there was a lump when touched. It is located under my left ear. And it hurts a little when pressed. Why is that? Is it dangerous? Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

A lump under the ear can come from an external structure such as the skin, but it can also come from other components in it, such as lymph nodes, mastoid bone, and so on.

Some possible causes are:

Folliculitis (hair root infection) Acne vulgaris (acne) Herpes zoster (chickenpox) Skin tumors, eg lipoma, fibroma, melanoma, sarcoma Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes) Mastoiditis (infection of the mastoid bone) Skin tags, etc. Whether or not the condition is dangerous what you are experiencing can only be known after the cause of the lump is determined. Therefore, check with your doctor right away. In mild conditions, doctors usually just give you topical medicines. However, if other, more serious conditions are suspected, it is possible that further tests, such as a biopsy, will be carried out.

Avoid squeezing or applying anything to the lump that appears under your ear without a doctor's supervision. Always keep yourself clean to avoid dangerous skin infections. Don't forget, maintain your immune system by eating healthy food, resting regularly, and exercising diligently.

Hope it helps ya..
