Neck Bump

A couple of days ago I noticed a small bump the size of a penny under my skin. It's located low under my ear. When I touch it it hurts. It feels like cartilage or bone and moves under my skin when I feel it.
I'm worried about it and i want to know if it will ever go away.

It could be a lymph node that is swollen because of some sort of infection. I get them swollen behind the ear when fluid is draining from my ear (I suffer from ear infections frequently). Try not to touch it a lot since they can end up staying that way if you do. If it doesn't go away within a few weeks check with your doc
