    Tonight a sore knot broke out on the back of my head behind my ear.
    Ouch. Its Sore.
    I get one every several months.
    Ii think there are glands that run up the back of the head .

    Does any one else get these and do you know why.
    What do you do for them.

    My husband and son get them. You are right they are swollen glands. Usually implicates an infection. Antibotics is what the doc gives my boys! Feel better soon.

    I have one that pops out time&again right in the very center of my neck.the back of my head~I've broughten it to my Drs attention and he did'nt seem to bothered by it,he said its a knot of tissue....like a tender/trigger point.???but I do get them...your not alone on this one.
    Oh yeah...(what to do?)I sometimes lightly massage mine,its pretty sore tho so I don't really mess to much with it.Heat seems to help,(low heat,or even a wet soaked washcloth)Have a good eve!
    Best,
