Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hey guys!

So I noticed when I took my plugs out of my ears to clean them today that there's a strange lump under my ear lobe. It's almost on my jawline, and you can really feel it when you kind of lift up my earlobe. It doesn't hurt unless I touch it, but it's really freaking me out! I notice it about 2 days ago and today it doesn't feel any better. What is it? Should I see a doctor?


Hi Heather,

It's a lymph node, most likely.  There are some located there.  If it is swollen it may indicate a minor infection, possibly even a dental infection.  Check behind the other ear and see if you can feel it too.

If you have no other symptoms it is probably not a cause for concern.
