I have hard lumps like small balls under my skin next to both ears and they are growing but not painful. What are they and the remedy?

Maureen, it’s difficult to say without examining you first, but it sounds like they might be glands or even lipomas. If the lumps are soft and the skin moves freely over them, you can wait a bit and see if they don’t want to go away by themselves, but if they’re stuck to the surrounding tissues you should see your GP a.s.a.p. Good luck.
