Hi, I'm 21 male and new here. I noticed a small bump behind my right ear a couple months ago like four maybe less and never really paid much attention to it. mostly caused i honestly forget about it but like a month ago. I've been experiencing tightening in my left temple in my head i did some some research and read that it could be caused be people who need glasses like myself but don't wear them. Soon after I went to the E.R cause i don't have health insurance i didn't know where else to go. i had a cat scan done, Doctors found nothing. soon experiencing the same on the right side this tightening. I never did any follow up work so a month later after all the stress like I've never experience before the tightening has almost virtually stop I have little to no headaches everything else seems O.K expecting my muscle twitching, but i had since i was 11 as it doesn't bother me as much ( I never went to a doctor About the muscle twitching). But i can't help to feel that maybe it has something to do with the bump behind my right ear right now since i last notice it's gotten rougher like almost dry skin on the dry elbow rough and also notice the bump is touching the back of the ear and where it's touching is also rough, I'm not really sure what that means. there's one more thing i feel i should throw out there about two or three months ago i got sick with a nasty cold for about two months first to weeks i decided not to take any medicine and just to ride it out soon after the two weeks i begin coughing up mucus at this point i started taking over the counter meds. soon when i felt i was getting better my right felt clog soon after the left one as well two weeks dealing with that begin the tighting and went to the E.R. Iv'e read that the bump sometimes comes with sickness but the bump appeard almost a month and half before any sypmtons of cold. i don't think it could be cancer i would think the cat scan might've pick up somthing altough i have no idea how one works. right now i got a new job and getting health insurance ealry next month and well be getting check out till then i could use some opinions (sorry for all the missplled words and what not :/ )
