Hard lump on mastoid that doesn't move

I have a hard lump on the bone behind my left ear. The lump feels like bone. The skin over the lump moves but the lump it's self does not. I'm pretty worried about it and plan to visit my gp soon. Cancer runs rampid in my family and my dad died at 49 due to stomach cancer. Should I be as worried as I am? The lump is about the size of a pea and I just noticed it last night. It doesn't ache or anything but if I push on it I get a little discomfort that radiates about and inch up or so. Also it's not red or warm to the touch or anything like that
