A few weeks ago I posted about a swollen lymph node behind my right ear. I've had this lymph node for around about 5 weeks now and it is slowly eating away at my life.
When I first found it seemed a lot larger than it is now and possibly a bit harder (not sure if my mind is just playing tricks on me). Anyways, the reason I think that it appeared is because I came down with a cold a few days after I found it.
After a few days my cold disappeared and I expected my lymph node to also disappear. Sadly it's still here. The lymph node is movable and relatively soft with a tad of firmness. It feels almost, 'fleshy'. It is currently about 0.5cm - 1cm in size. Although it feels larger in the morning for some reason and after I touch it, it goes down a little.
I've tried so hard not to touch it but it is becoming nearly impossible!!!! I feel totally fine and would never have noticed this without touching behind my ears!
Any sort of help will go a long way.
Thanks so much.
