Egg size neck growth
My 84 yo mother developed an egg size growth under her left ear on her neck.  It prevents some movement and is very sore to the touch.

i dont mean to scare you but my uncle had a growth in the same place. he was quickly diagnosed with cancer and passed away a couple weeks ago. theres no reason to think this is the same thing but i would definitely get it checked as soon as possible.

I would definitely see a doctor in this case.  It could just be a boil or benign cyst that may need to be lanced; however a doctor should rule other possilbilites out.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
A lump that feels warm and is present on the side of the face (underneath where the earlobe attached to my face) could be a swollen lymph node or a chronically inflamed parotid gland or a parotid abscess (localized collection of pus) or an abscess not involving the parotid gland.
This may need to be drained, treated with antibiotics and you must consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
