Hello, I am new to this forum, and I need some advise. I am very scared! I am a 21 year old female. On 10/19/06 at night I discovered a bump behind my ear. Now I know that I got it on that same day because my ear had been itchy for a couple of days already, inicially I thought it was just an insect bight or something similar because it was red and itchy, but my insect bites never last more than a few days and well my ear has been itchy for about 1 week and 1/2. Now like I said because my ear has been itchy on the 19th I noticed a bump behind my right ear, which hurts when I touch it. Its not very big, but I have never had anything like this happen to me before. well I have had the bump for about 1 week now, its not increasing in size but its not going away. Its not as painful, but stil hurts when I touch it. Now about two days ago my ear started hurting a little but. Its a very slight pain wich comes and goes, sort of light waves of pain shoot from my ear to the righ side of my head. Sort of like a migran, but like I said its waves of slight pain wich start sort of at my ear, then moves to my right side of head and ends up behind my right side of my head. front to back. I also have irritation on my neck, its very itchy, especially my left side, just as itchy as my ear, which is irritated because i have scratched it so much. Can anyone help me or give me advise!
