Lumps with Pain

Asked for Female, 35 years

I want to ask about the lumps that come and go after some time on its own on the neck and behind the ear. But they keep coming back? And yes they are painful. Are they dangerous?

Dear Patient,

They are lymph nodes. They are small bodies that help fight infections and germs. They grow when we have an infection or inflammation of the head and neck (since they are in your neck). They settled down when we improve. If they remain enlarged constantly then it's concerning.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best General Surgeons in Islamabad and seek in-person advice.
