Customer Question
Over the last two weeks...
Over the last two weeks I have having a swelling behind my left ear. I don’t think it’s lynphnodes because it’s quite painful and smaller almost like a pimple but it’s not poop able because it seems like it is deeper.I had one behind the ear in a different spot 2 weeks ago, it went away in a few days and not one came back on the lower back part of the ear (almost on the jaw line) and it much more painful. What could this be? Viral?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
