For the past 5 months or so I have noticed a small lump behind my left ear. This bump is on the bonde behind the ear (NOT the front of the face). The lump is hard, fixed, and not movable. It causes me no pain, and is about the size of a small pea. I have been playing with it lately, and do not think it has changed it size, and if it has it has been very minimal. About 2 months ago I had a doctor check it out, and the GP said that he didn't think it was anything to be concerned about. Also, for an unrelated issue I had to go through a hematologist exam due to a swollen liver, and he thoroughly examined my neck area and made no mention to anything (not sure if he felt it or not). Now that it has been a couple of months later and is still here, should I be very worried? I know I need to make an appoitment with an ENT, but I am curious as to;
1) What are lumps in this area behind the ear usually attributable to?
Thanks a lot.
