Suggest treatment for lump under right ear

I am male, 29 years. I have lump under my right ear. It is painless. Its size is constant. I got an Fine Needle Blood test. It didnt show any mailgnant cells and the diagnosis was that it could be sialedenosis. My doctor asked me to wait and watch for any other symptoms. When I asked if i should get any CTScan or MRI he refused and said that he feels he doesnt need it and moreover too much radiation. I am worried that it could be something serious. Please help. Should I show it to specialist and if yes which one?

Hi,DEar,thanks for your query to HCM.I studied your query in depth.1-In My opinion the the lump under the right ear, is the parotid benign pleo-morphic-adenoma(PBPA)-as it FNAC is without any malignant cells.2-I would advise you to show it to Surgeon , who would decide ,if CT / MRI study is needed in your case .3-Prima facie I dont feel its urgency, but would advise CAUTIOUS approach for your young age,but due to the high local-reccurrence post-surgery, a watch for the malignancy is needed.4-Hope this would solve your query.5-Wellcome for any more questions on new or this subject also...Have A Good Day..!!
