Fatty mass under jaw. Why nausea and sleeplessness? Surgery now?

I have had for years a fatty mass in my neck under my right jaw. Lately I have had equilibrium problems, especially if quickly moving my head. The last two nights I have a spinning sensation upon lying down, which is accompanied by a wall, not waves, of nausea . This kkeeps me from getting to sleep and eventually my body calms down and I can get to sleep. I had a small lipoma removed from the other side of my neck in 1988; it was wrapped around a nerve and the electrocautery wrecked a nerve to my chest, causing hypertrophy of the muscle on the left side of the base of my I am not in any hurry to have more surgery. I also note a small lipoma under the skin on my left arm has recently symptoms from that one.What should I do??

Such symptoms are commonly due to middle ear or auditory nerve issues. Ideally this should be investigated with MRI brain with focus on this nerve and middle ear.I don't think this related to previous surgery or current fatty mass. So consider getting MRI done.
