Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will answer your questions.
The lump behind the ear like the one you are complaining about can be caused by the following conditions:
Cyst: namely a bag filled with lipoma fluid: a bag filled with fat Mastoiditis: inflammation of the mastoid bone, the symptoms are swelling, pain, and redness of the mastoid bone behind the ear Boils (furuncles) Tumors Enlarged lymph nodes due to infection: in this case usually the lymph nodes will shrink back as the infection heals. To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct an examination of the area that you are complaining about. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations in the form of blood tests or consult an ENT doctor or surgeon for a biopsy, CT scan, or x-ray examination. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Avoid pressing or trying to get rid of the lump by yourself or non-medical people. If the lump is painful, you can take over-the-counter pain medications such as paracetamol. Eat nutritious foods and multiply fruits and vegetables to increase your endurance. Get enough rest, sleep 7- 8 hours a day Consumption of water about 2 liters per day That's all my explanation. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
