<p>Customer,</p><p> </p><p>Is the lymph node painful to the touch? Do you have any pain inside the ear? Any trouble hearing? Do you have a sore throat? Is teh rash on the forehead only itchy or is it painful and swollen too?</p>
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes it is painful to touch the lymph node. Not much pain inside the ear now. I have a little bit of sore throat only not much. The rash is on the right side of the forehead only & it is a bit itchy but not swollen or painful. I have used Ciprodex on my right ear. The pain is mostly on the back of the right ear. I have no trouble hearing. If the blood test is normal, could it be the presence of any tumour?

Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 5 years ago.
<p>Although the blood test is normal, it is more likely that the lymph node is swollen because of infection. A mild infection may not necessarily cause a rise in the WBC level. The lymph nodes of these area drain the ears, the upper throat, the nose and the surrounding areas. Since you had infection inside the ear as well as a sore throat , chances are that the lymph node is also inflamed. Swelling of lymph ndes due to tumors are usually painless. If you have not been prescribed any anti-inflammatory medicine besides the Ciprodex, please also take an anti-inflmammatory like Ibuprofen 200mg thrice daily after food. You should see the swelling go down in about 3 days.</p><p> </p><p>I hope this helps. </p><p>Let me know if you need more input. If not, please click on the green"Accept" button on this page.
