Maybe I'm overreacting. I stretched today, and rubbed behjind my ear, and felt a large lump behind on of them. it's just below ear level, and starts where the jaw bone is. It's not a cyst- I've had those. This is the size of an almond, and hard. I can't move it around, it kind of hurts when I put pressure on it.
The reason I'm posting here- I just noticed it today, and wondering what it was, did a google search. When a ton of pages came up with cancer in the title, I got scared. After reading some more, it seems that its quite possibly just a bacterial infection. Am I overreacting? I dont want to run to the doctor if it turns out it'll disappear on its own in a day or two. Should I wait a couple days before going to see him?
