Question: Gobstopper size lump !
|stu_the_blue - Tue Feb 22, 2005 11:34 am||
For the past two days now I’ve had a small lump the size of a gobstopper on the back of my head. I do recall when I was younger getting similar lumps when playing sport. But they seemed to go within a couple of hours. I think it was put down to glands.
However this little fella doesn’t look like going anyway and is giving me a little pain from time to time.
I'm currently taking Erythromycim 250mg for an eye infection, previous to that i was taking some Creatine based protein drink for thr Gym.
Anyone got any suggestions before I lose yet another day at work going the doctors

From your description it sounds as though it may be an enlarged lymph node which should decrease in size after the course of your antibiotic treatment.
