I have had a hard, unmovable lump on the temporal bone behind my right ear for a year or more now. It isn't painful to touch but it often causes pain in, around my ear, and where the lump is. It is the size of a dime now but was smaller when I first found it. Not sure if this is related to the lump but my scalp has been quite itchy(no bugs or dandruff), and a couple of night these past few weeks, right above my ear with the lump, I get a tingling sensation in my head(like you feel when your foot or hand falls asleep) but I had not even been laying on that side of my head, and it was in one little spot.Not sure what it is but I did some research and I don't think it is a lymph node because of the fact that it is on the bone and it has not gone away. But I'm not sure. Should I be worried?View Thread
