Pain Under The Left Ear And A Painful Lump Appears?
Hello. I want to ask. R nSo like this 6 years ago I started having pain in the lower left ear. There is a kind of small lump and a bit hard and if you touch it, it will hurt. The lump is not visible, you have to touch it first and then feel the pain only occasionally. R n … r nNow the lump is not only in the left side, but it has also spread to the lower side of the right ear. Within 6 years the lump was getting bigger and finally “this level of pain is getting more intense. r n … r nWhy can it propagate to the right huh? ? Does this attack the lymph nodes? Or some kind of tumor? And if you go to the hospital, which specialist do you have to go to? Is it internal medicine or ENT? R n … r nThank you.
Lumps that appear under the ear can be caused by the following conditions:
Parotitis is an infection of the salivary gland Abscess, which is a collection of pus that forms a lump Folliculitis, namely inflammation of the hair follicles, Mastoiditis, which is inflammation of the mastoid bone around the ear Sebaceous cysts, namely bags containing fatty fluid Lymphadenopathy, namely enlarged lymph nodes that can be caused by many factors including dental infections, Respiratory tract infections, tumor Lymphadenitis, namely infection of the lymph nodes, etc. To confirm your condition, you should see an ENT specialist. The doctor will perform an examination in connection with your complaint and may suggest investigations if needed. It is recommended that you get an examination immediately given the condition of the lump that is getting bigger and spreading to the opposite side.
Here's a suggestion for you:
Avoid squeezing the lumps that arise. Apply a healthy lifestyle. Eat regularly and nutritionally Get enough rest Hopefully useful
