I have a lump in the right side of my neck below/behind my ear. There also seems to be some light swelling in the area. I have blurry vision in 1 eye. Thoughts?
The lump should be investigated more on the basis of its location, size, movement on swallowing, relation with nearby infection if present.
I is not possible to tell whether blurry vision is linked with that lump.
Dr Hari Om Chandrakar
Hi, Welcome to HCM.
Causes of lumps under armpits can be multiple. Lymph nodes are primarily present in the armpits and most of swelling or lumps are due to infections of the neighboring areas. These are usually warm and tender. Others can be tumors (spread from the breasts), cysts, abscess. Regardless of these causes they should not be ignored.
Hope this helps.
