Re: i found a small hard painless lump 2 inches below my ear does that mean i have ca

Treehugger,
It may be a swollen lymph node due to the virus you had. You may have to get on antibiotics to see if the swelling goes down. If not, then I would go to an ear nose throat specialist to have it looked at. Just because you dont have insurance doesnt mean you cant go to the doctor, unless of course you meant you couldnt afford it. If thats the case, I would try to make it work, because if it is "just a lymph node" and it is swollen and palpable and doesnt go away, it would be cause for concern.
