  1. Thank you for sharing.

    I am a male, generally healthy, just past 40 years old. I’m in fairly good shape and I don’t smoke.
    Last winter, a few days before christmas, I got an ache just behind my right ear. All of a sudden it was just there. To stay, as it seemed. It was more of a nuisence that a pain, but iy would get worse when I had a cold or the flu. I thought about having it checked, but never got around to it.
    Then, one day early in September (i.e. after 8 months) the ache was just gone. And haven’t returned since.
    What do you think, should I go check it out?

    If you are concerned I would recommend going to an ear-nose-throat doctor and having a checkup..better safe then sorry. My husband had a sore throat for months and ear pain – they treated him for sleep apnea because he had started to snore. It was months before they actually diagnosed him for throat cancer…They were checking him for everything but this. The doctors basically ignored his sore throat – they said it was allergy related…
