Hi. About a month ago I noticed a small lump directly below my ear lobe it's about the size of a bean. It's painless and from what I've noticed It doesn't seem to be hard. The size has remained the same. I am 16 years old and rather worried about this. I have a doctors appointment next month but I'm still very anxious and concerned on what might be going on. Some people say it might be an infection but I feel completely fine. The one thing I am worried about is lymphoma but the size hasn't changed and I have no symptoms. Also, I have a small infection in my ear lobes from my ear pierces which cause them to be itchy and hurt. Can this type of infection be related?
