Hello Mely, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Lumps behind the ear are most often caused by swollen lymph nodes in the ear, which are usually enlarged due to the surrounding infectious process, and if the lump bursts and oozes pus, the possible causes are:
Ear abscess Boils Atheroma cyst lipoma ear tumor folliculitis or inflammation of the hair follicle To determine the cause, direct observation must be carried out, therefore it is advisable to consult a doctor, it is recommended to go to a general surgeon, the doctor will perform a physical examination, blood examination and tissue biopsy of the lump so that the doctor can analyze the cause.
What you have to do is:
Do not often touch the lump that has burst, because it will worsen the infection Avoid using ointments or drugs other than the prescription from the doctor who examines you Eat nutritious food Get enough rest Read articles about Causes of lumps behind the ear
