I realised thus morning in the shower I have a overly sized hard lump behind my ear. It does not hurt to touch, however does sensitise the ear drum some. Can any one offer thoughts or experience with the same thing please?

A reactive lymph node swelling is likely to resolve by it self without any treatment. It can also be due to a skin or ear infection. If the swelling persists or becomes greater in size or is exquisitely painful than it needs to be examined and would require further work up to determine the cause and treat accordingly
