It is probably a salivary gland
where is it exactly?
just under the back og my jaw bone toward my ear
has it been examined?
It sounds like a salivary gland
with this length of time
unless there is increased swelling and pain
and it can effect my hearing badly
If your hearing is affected you need to see an ENT doctor
ear nose and throat specialist.
This might all be related to a chronic problem
such as infection
or autoimmune problem
infection for most of my life ?
but it should not affect your hearing
that is a concern
There might be something wrong in the ear aggravating the gland
autoimmune, not sure what that is
such as sjogren's syndrome
the body attacks itself
any time any questions
