Fixed lymph node. Help please!
« on: December 28, 2013, 05:08:37 PM »
Hi everyone. I've discovered small pea size lymph node behind my ear. It is hard and fixed to a bone and it doesn't hurt. I think it was there for a while. When I poke it swells (and I was doing it a lot recently).
Yesterday I came to see my GP and he basically blew me off saying that it is normal for this type of lymph nodes to be immobile and rock hard as it is located on a bone  B-; Is it really the case? I couldn't find any proof online and seems like Dr Google only suggests that such cases should be further investigated.

I need your advise please: shall I go to see another doctor (should be a private now) for a second opinion? Or should I trust my GP and try to control my HA?
I feel great and don't have any other symptoms.

Thanks.

I have heard this about it being immobile because it's on the bone before. That's all I can tell you. You should wait for 2 weeks and see the doctor again if it's still there.

My son has this and three doctors including a physician at a children's hospital have all looked at it to no concern.

I have one behind my ear that's very similar - doesn't move and all that. I've had it for many years (and worried about it when I discovered it, too!). On top of that a couple of years back I had a hard immovable spot in my neck that I thought was a lymph node. I convinced myself it was cancer - was so sure it would be. But I went do a doc who happened to specialize in bones and he felt it and said it was a bone! Anyway, yeah ... especially since your doc said he wasn't worried, I would not be either. :)

I have the exact same thing and noticed it about a month ago. Hard as a rock. ENT said he's "100% sure" it's not cancer.

My daughter was born with one of those. Behind her war, it's the size of a pea, it's Rick hard and doesn't move. Dr says as long as it doesn't grow she's not worried. It's been two years and its the same.
