Growning Lump Behind Ear

Hi, i have recently noticed a lump behind my ear.
It is painful to touch although it is skin colour.
It seems to be swelling since its getting larger.
What could this be?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to infection in scalp or ear.
Just take amoxicillin and look for the response. If it persists then consult ENT surgeon for thorough assessment.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
