Hi Alinda, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
A lump behind your ear is a harmless and non-life-threatening condition, and the possible causes of a lump behind your ear are:
Lymphadenopathy is a lump that appears due to infection
Otitis media or middle ear infection
To find out the cause, you can have your ear checked by an ENT doctor, so that an examination and observation of the lump can be carried out directly, so that the doctor can analyze the cause of the lump, and determine the treatment for the lump.
All you have to do is
Avoid picking or squeezing the lump
Avoid scratching the bump
Avoid using any ointments or medications other than the doctor's prescription for you
Get enough rest
Eat nutritious foods
