Question:
2 days ago I suddenly got a hard, very painful lump behind my right ear, about the size of a marble. It is extremely painful and accompanied by weakness. I was unsuccessful in finding what it might be. It can't be a tumor because it grew literally overnight. What can it be? Should I go to the emergency room?
VB
Answer:
One of the most likely explanations for this is a simple one (an infected sebaceus cyst) but you need to have a doctor examine you to be sure that this is the right explanation. We recommend you make an appointment to see your doctor or come to our clinic to be seen.
