Small hard lump behind left ear and pregnant.

Hello im shardae, I have had a small hard non-movable lump behind my left ear for about 2 weeks. When it first appeard it was tender and swollen, that pain went away in about three days, now the lump is about the size of a dime. Im also 13 weeks pregnant so im starting to worry more and more with each passing day! Should I make a call to the doctors, or just wait till my next prenatal visit to bring it up?

get it checked out just to put your mind at rest. Adults and children have tonnes of lymph nodes in the neck and head area the lymph nodes fight infection and sometimes they swell and can for no reason. Fretting will not make it go away but a visit to the doctor could. Any lump is worth having checked and as you are pregnant this is a time to enjoy. Good luck with your baby
