Hey, i'm new to the forum, but i really need some type of answer.. because i really dont like going to the doctor. :D So I'm 18 years old and i had got home from work, and sat down and brushed my hair behind my ear when i felt this little bump. its not ON the back of my ear.. its a few cenimeters south of the bone. at first i thought, oh whatever its a bug bite. but it doesnt hurt. AT ALL. its about pea sized. it's not red or irritated or anything. and i can feel that its under the skin. My mom thinks its a pimple. but 1. ive never had a pimple behind my ear. 2. dont pimples form in the skin?! Then, a few hours later I felt behind my other ear. and there were TWO others!! these were on the bone. one is larger than the one on my left ear. and the second is smaller. And like the other one, these don;t hurt. and theyre not red. But by looking at the skin, you can clearly see round bumps.
Does ANYONE know whats wrong with me?
I'm hesitant to go to the doctor if its nothing.
