Thanks in advance for anyone who has any insight into my question.
I recently had a small lump directly behind one ear lobe almost in the crease.
I did panic. I got it checked, one person said he thought it was just a benign cyst (wasn't 100%) a week later a triage nurse said it was a lymph node. A third doctor said it could've been either.
My question is, the cyst or node never formed a head but was definitely attached to the skin layer. I thought nodes were always under the skin??
Also the other nodes under the ear didn't change size at all, some medical diagrams don't even show a node directly behind the ear lobe, so i left 3 appointments none the wiser..
I did constantly prod and check it. If it was a node I do get allergies or it could've been something else.
Any ideas of where I can get more information of theses specific nodes, it's quite important.
