Hello Rahardiana Galuh Cahyanning Kirtty,
Lumps behind the ear can occur due to infection, enlarged lymph nodes, or neoplasms (cancer). Some diseases that can cause a lump behind the ear include:
Lipoma Sebaceous cyst, epidermoid cyst Acne / cystic acne Enlargement of lymph nodes Mastoiditis Sarcoma Most of the above diseases are harmless, but some are dangerous so need early diagnosis and proper treatment. A direct examination with a doctor is needed to diagnose the cause of a lump behind the ear. The doctor needs to ask when the lump first appeared, enlargement, tenderness, complaints in the ear or other organs that can be related to the lump, accompanying symptoms, history of the lump elsewhere and so on. Investigations such as ultrasonography, MRI, or lump tissue biopsy may be needed for certain cases.
Handling of a lump behind the ear varies depending on the cause. If the infection, the doctor may give antibiotics for several days. To relieve pain, the doctor will give pain relievers. If there is a large amount of pus and does not decrease with treatment, the doctor may perform a small surgical procedure to remove the pus. Enlargement of lymph nodes can be above by finding the source of infection that causes it and providing therapy for the infection. Lipomas and cysts can be treated surgically. In lumps suspected as malignancy / cancer investigations are needed to ensure that a new diagnosis can be given appropriate therapy in the form of surgery, chemotherapy, and or radiotherapy.
Tremors are rhythmic movements of parts of the body that are unintentional and cannot be controlled. Tremors in the hands can occur in the following conditions and diseases:
Muscle fatigue due to repetitive and severe use Essential tremor Hyperthyroid Anxiety disorders, panic attacks Multiple sclerosis Parkinson's disease Alcohol dependence Consumption of caffeine Side effects of certain drugs If tremors only appear occasionally, it is not often possible to be caused due to muscle fatigue. However, if tremors occur all the time and interfere with your activities and activities using your hands such as holding a spoon, writing, knitting and other activities that use motor hands are disrupted, you should consult yourself directly to the doctor to find out the cause of your tremor and proper handling. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
