This answer was rated:

I have a lump behind my left ear. I doesn't hurt and not inflamed. It has been there for more than 1 year. A haircutter first noticed and I thought it was from sunglasses. I don't have those sunglasses for the past 6 months and the lump is still there.

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Is the lump firm and how big is it? pea size?

Customer:

It is about 1.5 inches long, banana shaped and 1/4 inch wide

Customer:

It is firm

mysticdoc :

Ok

mysticdoc :

thanks for your reply.

mysticdoc :

Lymph node is unlikely since it is round in shape.

mysticdoc :

This can be a fat cyst or a scar tissue cyst.

mysticdoc :

This is likely harmless.

mysticdoc :

But this should be checked by your doctor for confirmation.

Best wishes,
