Painless Lump In The Lower Part Of The Right Ear?
Well, I want to ask, my lower right earlobe has a small lump that if you see nothing, but if you touch it, it doesn’t feel any pain, just like normal, only when touched, it feels like a lump, that’s why .. Please answer, thanks 🙏
Hello Ms. Mulyarani, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. We will try to explain what you ask us.
Basically in the human body there is an immune system that functions to protect the body from all kinds of dangers that threaten, such as viral, bacterial or even parasitic infections and can also be against the body's own malignancy. Organs that are closely related to the body's defense system are lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are scattered in all parts of the body, it's just that in certain places there are more in number namely:
armpit chin behind the neck ear groin back of the head Lumps around your ears are most likely an enlarged lymph node. This enlargement occurs because of the reaction to the number of body defense cells produced by lymph nodes to fight substances that are harmful to the body, be it viruses, bacteria or other harmful substances.
To be sure you should check with your doctor, especially if the lump appears for no apparent reason, continues to grow and has remained more than 2 weeks and also has a hard texture and does not move when shaken. In some cases swelling of the lymph nodes can indeed heal itself, but it would be better if you consult a doctor directly when you feel the symptoms of lymph node swelling. If later the lump gets more painful then you can do simple treatments at home such as compressing it with warm water, getting enough rest and taking drugs that can be purchased at pharmacies such as paracetamol.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful for you. thank you
