Hi,


A lump that appears between the ear and cheek can be caused by several possibilities. The most common cause is enlarged lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are normal in every human being, they are very small as big as peanuts, their function is to defend the body against an infection. Lymph nodes can become enlarged when there is an infection. But this is normal. The lumps will disappear if the infection process decreases.But apart from enlarged lymph nodes due to infection, several other possibilities include:

lymphadenitis, inflammation / infection of the lymph nodes, often following infections such as cold cough, sore throat, tooth infection, ear infection
lymphoma, a malignancy that occurs in the lymph nodes, enlargement of the lymph nodes
glandular tuberculosis, infection with mycobacterium tuberculosis that attacks the lymph nodes, symptoms of glandular enlargement, for example in the area under the ear, neck, armpits, groin, etc.
parotitis, infection / inflammation of the parotid gland, another name for mumps
tumor
abscess

To ascertain the exact cause of the thing or complaint you are experiencing, you should further check with the doctor at the hospital, later you will also need additional examinations if needed such as blood tests, etc. Treatment according to the underlying cause.


For initial treatment, you can do the following:

taking anti-inflammatory drugs such as paracetamol
get enough rest
Take care of health
treat the underlying disease if you get flu or other complaints
eat nutritious foods
don't squeeze the lump
warm compress
