What Are The Causes And Solutions Of Lumps Under The Earlobe?
Hello, I don’t know if there is a small lump under my earlobe if it is squeezed and it hurts a little, and I really want to touch it because it feels like a lump even though the scale of the lump is small. What should I do?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
It seems like what you mean is a lump in the neck under the ear. As for diseases that can be related to the complaint, including:
1. Lymphadhenitis colli, which is inflammation of the neck lymph nodes, which is caused by a viral or bacterial infection. A person who is coughing or has caries or is the focus of an infection on the teeth is at risk of developing this disease due to germs spreading to the nearest lymph node.
2. Lipoma is swelling due to the growth of fat between the skin and muscle tissue. Lipoma when pressed will feel soft and easy to move. Lipomas will grow slowly, if large can press on nerves, causing pain.
To find out your disease, you can consult an ENT doctor. The doctor will conduct an examination and provide treatment according to the cause. If the lump is not relieved by medication, alternative surgery may be considered minimal. Meanwhile, while at home you can compress the lump with warm water. If the estimated lump location does not match your complaint, please create a new question topic by specifying the location of the lump in detail.
Thus hopefully useful.
