Question: Pea sized lump, left mastoid process


 sarkin - Fri Dec 08, 2006 5:59 pm

I have had this lump on my left mastoid process, hard & fixed, for a couple of years. It is definitely not just my mastoid. Recently it has begun to get larger, and become mildly tender to the touch, then goes back to it's previous size which it is always pea sized. I have hx. of c5-c6 fusion w/ current c6-c67 degeration w/ a lot of soft tissue pain primarily on my right. Could neck hx. irritate SCM to the point of developing a lump or is this something I should have my doctor look at?

Thank you for your help!

User avatar Hello,

If no one has examined your swelling before then you should have your doctor look at it.

I don't think your history of disc problems has anything to do with it.

Best regards,
