Pain behind earlobe, no fever. Chest x-ray?

Hello, I am a 5 4 female with no prior medical issues, other than cold now and then, 155 lb, but when I drink beer or some sorts of alcohol , I get a pain sensation in behind my earlobe in my nodes, they do not swell and it goes away. I don t have any other symptoms of Hodgins Lyphoma, sweat, swollen glands, no fever, etc. so wondering if I should have a chest X-ray and continue to worry about this or not. I drink socially and not a everyday thing. Thank you,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

In some individuals when they consume chilled beverages there is spasm of blood vessels which causes congestion in the nose and oral cavity. The pain you are perceiving behind the ear lobes is due sudden blockage of the Eustachian tube secondary to the nasal congestion. Do steam inhalation and drink plenty of warm water after consuming chilled beverages. I doubt any sort of tumors. If you are still worried, better to consult a good ENT specialist.
