Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've noticed two firm bumps behind my ears, and this morning I discovered another smaller one. They match my skin tone and don't cause any itching. What could be the cause of this?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr.Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


1. It's possible that these bumps are lymph nodes, which can become swollen in response to infection or inflammation.


2. Another potential cause could be cysts, which are sacs filled with fluid or semi-solid material.


3. If the bumps persist or cause discomfort, it's advisable to consult a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment.
