Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query and an elucidate history. The lump behind the ear is certainly either ab infected lymph n ode or a Sebaceous cyst. The pain on touch indicates so. I would advise you the following: First of all get a course of an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory medicines and probiotic. Do not fiddle or pop. It may settle well, Only rarely a surgery may be required. I hope this answer helps you.
