Re: Lump behind ear

The swelling you have described that is felt on the left upper side of the neck behind the ear is probably enlarged Lymph nodes as it occurs in a Lymph node region.
Abnormal Lymph node enlargement commonly results from infection / immune response, cancer.

Following infection Lymph nodes become enlarged, painful and tender.

A history of scalp infected lesions, or Ear infection may be present, as this Lymph node could be a reactionary to infection in the area drained by this Lymph node group.
