This is the reason I haven't been able to ride my ATV. I have had this thing beside my ear for like forever. Never gotten bigger or changed (The size of a zit). Tuesday before Christmas it swelled up. Went to the Dr. on Monday and a specialist Wednesday. She drained like 1/10 ounce of fluid out of it and it has swollen everyday since. My wife keeps helping me drain it. Dr. has me on Antibiotics. I got a little trouble with my Equilibrium and can feel it everytime I open my jaw. Other then its swollen out further then my ear I feel like a freak and it hurts like hell. I go for a Cat Scan Wenesday to check my neck and face for anything adnormal or cancerous.

Anyone ever have any problems like this before?

I've had several removed from my head, still have some left. Never bothered with them till one started getting bigger. I think in almost all cases it's nothing to worry about :)

I think she wants to remove it but wants all the swelling to be gone. Its laying right on my nerve and near my Equilibrium and I just got an off balance kind of feeling right out of the blue every now and then. Can't wait until that stops.

I meant in most cases they benign, not cancerous.

I've had a few removed also, but not from my head or neck. Had one on my wrist and a few on my left arm. I currently have 4 more on my left arm, 1 bothers me because it fukking itches at times. The one that was on my wrist hurt like a bitch, couldn't even ride my motorcycle until I had it removed. None of them removed were malignant.

Well Skippy you know I have been in the medical field for many years. In rare incidences when they test they cyst tissue at the lab they find testicular cells. When some boys reach maturity their balls drop. It sounds like you finely made it to puberty. Unfortunately they have dropped next to your ear. I have always said you were a dick head!!! :p

It's likely a simple sebacious cyst (oil gland) that became infected. It's laying on the main facial nerve which will end up giving you pain anywhere from the tip of your chin to the side of your forehead. It may not respond to oral antibiotics; you could end up on IV to get the infection under control.
Hopefully the doctor knew what she was doing when she tried to drain it; it's not uncommon to have the puss leak out and cause more infection in the area if it's drained while still infected.

That is all the Dr pulled out. My wife thinks she has pulled out an ounce and a half or more...

i had a cyst on my neck, it was there all my life... they called it a branchial cleft cyst, it was just a knot under the skin... everyone made a big deal of it, so my wife finally talked me into seeing a surgeon...

in post op, the doctor came up to me and said he got it removed... he said it was 1.5 cm, it didn.t
have a tail to trace down... but he wasn't sure what it was...

so, i went 2 weeks thinking i had some kind of cancer till the results came back... it was a branchial cleft cyst that had died and became covered in cartilage...

i have a few lumps on my head but nothing causing me pain.. i did have my neck swell up though, kind of below and behind my ear.. my jaw hurt like hell and it hurt to swallow so i went to the doc.. it turned out to be an infection in my gland from a piece of steel that got stuck in my ear from the lathe.. antibiotics cleared it up..
