Painful lump near ear..hairline...

I noticed that the right side of my head was hurting and could not pinpoint the problem until this morning. I have a lump right where my ear connects to my head....right on my temple. It is very sore and it is making my ear hurt? Any thoughts

Re: Painful lump near ear..hairline...

My first thought is some sort of benign skin eruption like acne or a boil.

How long have you had it?

How big is it?

It could also be an ingrown hair since you said it's near the hairline.

Does it feel like fluid is inside? Is it hard like a pea?

Do you have ANY other symptoms of anything?

Generally, as far as lymphomas go, the "lumps" (actually swollen lymph nodes) are not tender or painful, so I doubt it's related.

If it doesn't resolve in a couple of days or it bothers you, visit a Dr.
