Lump in back of head
« on: December 25, 2013, 01:06:23 PM »
First of all Merry Christmas too all. I haven't been here in a while because for years my GAD had been in check however now I have a whole brand new scare. I recently noticed a lump behind my left ear kind of on the back of my head. It seems to be the size of a marble. It is painful to touch and even when I lay down I feel some slight discomfort. Of course my first reaction was absolute panic and my second reaction was to start looking things up on the internet even though I know from the past that that's the worst thing any of us hypo's could do. Obviously it's Christmas and I'm not going to the doc today but I was just wondering if anyone out there has had anything similar? I'm sure this is going to ruin my day but I really am trying not to think about it. Please help.

I have some bony lumps in the back of my head, and I'm pretty sure it's the occipital ridge which is found in all humans.

The only thing to fear is fear itself.
Too bad my mind doesn't want to believe that.

Is it inside or outside the skin? Could be a cyst, or a lymph node.

It's inside the skin. It feels very much like the other side just slightly larger and now oh so sore  :-*

It's probably a Lymph Node, I beg you not to look on the internet for lymph node, thats how I got into the current state I'm in  :traurig001:, if it's still swollen in like a week or two go see your doctor just to make sure every thing is fine, It might not even be a node though. And if it's painful and tender to touch, thats actually a good thing when it comes to lymph nodes.

Oh boy that's scary. I definitely won't look that stuff up. I really do think its a lymph node because I haven't been feeling too well in general, my only concern is why would only one swell and not a few or all of them?? I'm so worried I really need to try and relax. I'm not sure I can wait a week to go to the doc. I might have to go tomorrow :(

I bet it's a lymph node, I have an enlarged one behind my ear and on the back of my head where my hair line is. I've had them for weeks and just found out I have mono.
