This is one that I wasn't worried much about..until now. It has gone up and down in size. One time, it went down almost completely then I touched it andd it went back up again. it has never gotten bigger and its small, squishy and if I poke it enough, it hurts.
Anyways, my only concern is that compared to my other lymph nodes, it seems close to the surface. I've tried to take pictures of it and never see anything. Its been about a month-month and a half that it hasn\t changed in size. However, it obviously protrudes when i touch it.
So my question is, logically, I'm thinking this is just because there is less room behind the ear opposed to in the neck. So that's why it feels like it sticks out. is this normal??
(I've read that lymphoma nodes don't tend to be behind the ear anyways but I'm just wondering)>
