      Hi everyone, I’m so sorry to post over something that’s probably nothing when so many of you are battling hard but I’d be really grateful for your wisdom right now.
      I have been NED or 5 years now and recently had a new mole appear on my scalp couple of inches above my ear, I am due to have this removed on Tuesday 7th feb, however today I have found a lump behind my ear on the same side. Is this a swollen node? I am freaking A little right now.
      I don’t know if its a pimple although it doesn’t feel like a pimple and it is a little sore but that maybe because I’ve been touching and poking it for n hour or so. I’m sorry for ranting but I never had swollen nodes before so dont really know what I’m looking for. The swelling is about 1 and a half inches directly below my new mole.
      Thank you so much any replies I truly grateful.

          It is probably nothing, if the location matches the chart I have attached.  Point it out when you see your doctor on the 7th, especially since you have had multiple Mels.

                Thanks Mary I think it looks like it’s in the place of the posterior Aurelius gland? Hope that’s the right name lol, does that mean it’s probably nothing then?
