Question: Hi there I am a 28-year-old female I do not smoke I do not drink. I have found a small P size lump behind my right ear in the crease it is movable. I also found another one behind my right ear closer to the hairline but this one has shrunk in size. I have one more on the left side underneath my left ear lobe behind my Jaw line. Other symptoms include night sweats but I am on antidepressants I have had these night sweats for about six months or so back pain which is mild I have seen to doctors one said nothing to worry about the other doctor had me take a blood test and chest x-ray. They both came back normal. I am still very worried should I be? Could this be lymphoma? Also I have not been sick of any kind such as cold or flu or anything like that
