Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. This is the mastoid process. It's always sticking out in every person. Sometimes there may be a swelling on it causing pain. However check it to see any redness, press it to see fluctuation, if present consults a general physician near you.

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