What could swollen lymph node with hearing loss suggest?
Hi, my boyfriend has been expiriencing hearing loss and pain in his ear canal and behind his ear. Today I noticed a swollon lymph node right behind his ear. The pain seems to have been increasing the last couple days. Could you please help me figure out what this might be?
The symptoms of your boyfriend seem to be related to an ear infection. The swollen lymph node is usually related to an infection. I suggest an examination by the ENT Specialist for further evaluation. Meanwhile, I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest using ear drops for antibacterial properties.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
