Could it be a swollen lymph node? How big is it?  could be an ear infection too. Do you have sharp pain in the ear ? I would see your doc and see have him check the lump and the ears and throat.  It sounds like an ear or tooth infection. Don't know for sure of course...

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If you recently had fever then this could be a parotid swelling. It is difficult to comment without examination.  Lump under the ear could also be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). It could also be TMJ.
Please consult your PCP for a preliminary examination.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
