Swelling behind ear lobe and pain

It started with severe pain in my ears and I thought I will wait it out. Then after 2-3 days the pain got even worse and I have a swelling behind my ears and right behind my ear lobes I could feel a lump or the swelling is the worse behind the ear lobes and it hurts a lot.

Any advice?

Sounds like a very bad ear infection. Hope you saw a doctor already.
