I have a pea size lump underneath my right earlobe on the right side if my neck. I also have a marble size lump on the lower part of my neck, right side,approximately 2 down from my ear lobe. Both lumps appeared suddenly over 3 weeks ago with no cold, cough, or known infections at the time.

For over a year I have been having intermittent pain, like an uncomfortableness or pressure in the upper right hand side, behind my ribs. I can press the area and gag. I also have pain in my ear whenever I get this uncomfortableness and I have been told that this is referred pain. I have a daily bowel movement but it is hard and smells odd. It also always floats. I have had an ultrasound and endoscopy and my blood tests are normal. I eat well - lots of vegetables and drink plenty of fluids.
