I've had this strange lump behind my left ear ( and a much smaller one behind my right ear ) since as long as I can remember - someone first pointed it out to me when I was about 11
It feels rubbery and can be moved around slightly
It's never hurt or anything, but I really don't know what it is
Whenever I search "lump behind ear" I never receive ANY cases that are like mine ! Does anyone have an idea of what it is and if anything should be done about it ? Thank you !
Do you have any symptoms? Any pain in the ears or behind the ears, dizzyness or vertigo or any other symptoms. It could be a benign tumor called an acoustic neuroma but you would need an MRI to check.I suppose it could be a cyst as well. Cysts are more common.
