I have a swollen lymph node right under my right ear lobe.

This answer was rated:

I have a swollen lymph node right under my right ear lobe. Both of my ears also feel congested with cracking and popping when I open my jaw. I do have seasonal allergies and I use Flonase nasal spray day and night. What is this and should I be concerned about lymphoma?
Hello. I am not worried about you having lymphoma. It is much more likely that you are experiencing a swollen node secondary to you having allergies. If this continues without any change in your symptoms for more than 2 weeks, I would advise you to see your physician. If you develop a significant fever or experience night sweats or begin to lose a considerable amount of weight during this time, I would see your doctor as soon as possible. I hope this helps.
