If you haven't already solved your problem, I have had something similar last Summer. It was a hard lump just behind my ear in the crease. I went to the ear, nose, and throat doctor. The said it was an internal cyst and that it isn't deadly or anything but it may start to hurt or get infected and need to be drained. They said it is something you're born with and can be removed, but they cannot prevent it from growing back. They said it is formed by layers of skin growing underneath the skin. I had it removed the same day it was diagnosed. It hasn't come back so far but just recently I have discovered another one that I believe is forming behind my other ear.

Lump
I have thyroid issues in my family medical history, mother and father both. I recently had bloodwork done and the results revealed that I also have hypothyroid symptoms. I am currently waiting to see a doctor concerning this. I have a lump, or knot, behind my left ear closer to my throat. It is not painful, it is hard and I have also been suffering from a sore and irritated throat. Of course, I am in panic mode! I have almost two weeks until my appointment. Please give me advice on what to think or do. I should not be reading everything on the Internet, but I am very scared.

I have a lump behind my ear that appeared in a few hours. It woke me out of my sleep, it was swollen and tender I went to urgent care the yesterday afternoon, my doctor diagnosed me with cellulitis. I was given a Rx for Bactrim, and Percocet for the pain, have to go back Wednesday. Will update.

lymph nodes
I've had a lump behind my right ear for 4-5 years now...at first I thought it was just a bug bite or something. It was not tender or painful and seems pretty hard. Lately now I have had one in my left armpit. At first it was very painful for about a week. Then it went away. Now it keeps fluctuating between swollen and not swollen without pain. Also my left elbow seems a tad tender. I know painful nodes are usually signs of infection, but the one behind my ear was never painful. I'm pretty scared about it

I am an 11 year old who also has a lump behind my ear. When I felt it I got really anxious because I was worried it was Hodgkin's Lymphoma. My mum wasn't too worried but I was so she is taking me to the doctor. I am very anxious about what it could be, Its hard and hurts a tiny bit. Plese help me, I havn't slept the past couple of nights and all Ive thought about is getting cancer.

Pea-Sized Bump Behind Ear
I'm 15 and I have a somewhat similar issue. There's a small (pea-sized, maybe) bump behind my ear. It's just above my earlobe and right next to where my ear meets my head. I asked my mom about it today and she said it could just be an infection, because I mentioned how it started to hurt when I wear earbuds in that ear, inside of my ear. The bump feels a tender to the touch and only hurts now that my mom tried to squeeze it a bit to hard. But when I don't touch it, there isn't any pain, only when I do touch it. I've heard that it's either an infection or a lymph node. Which one is it though? Or is it something more serious than that?

I also have the same sort of pea-sized lump (that I have just noticed) on the upper left side of my back, closer to the middle of my back. If I push on it, there is a small, sharp pain. I obviously don't think that could be caused by an infection. It's under the skin but it's not connected to the skin. I'm beginning to think they're both either lymph nodes, cysts or possibly tumors? Does this sound like something that needs to be checked soon?
