Hello and thank you for posting your health query on E health Forum.

The description and the location of the lump indicates that it might be a inflammed lymph node, probably associated with infection in the ear.

Presence of a node that is painful on pressure, has surrounding redness is associated with inflammation. Treatment with antibiotics will treat the infection and resolve the lymph node enlargement.

You might seek consultation of your treating doctor for additional information and further treatment.

I hope this helps.
