Question: Lump on back of head before menstral cycle

 zoto2 - Sun Feb 20, 2005 3:07 pm

For the past couple of years I have noticed that a week before my menstral cycle I develop a lump. It is usually behind one of my ears. I believe they are related but I am not 100% sure. Any thoughts??

User avatar Hello,

I do not think that they are related. If it persists please have it checked out.

Best regards.
