Hi, I wonder if any one can help because my GP said she doesn't know what the lump of swollen veins is. The lump started off quite small and grew within a couple of weeks and is now the size of a pound coin. My GP said that there is also a prominent vein going up the back of my ear. The lump is at the bottom of my scull, behind the right ear. Any ideas what this could be?

Elaine, Dr's usually have an idea if something is serious but I would want a definite diagnosis.
It could be that there might be a we blockage or something like that partially occluding the vein , I would go back and say I wanted want to know what it is for my own piece of mind. You might find he will say just go to casualty if your really worried about it and he is not.
Do not panic and think they are all your problems probably not any of them. It could be varicas viens that are easily treated. But I would ask for a referral to some one.
