Toddler with bump behind right ear

My toddler(21months) has a pretty large bump/ lump behind her right ear.  It is almost the size of a quarter and noticeable just by looking at her.  We just noticed today.  She had a cold and ear infection about 3 weeks ago and was treated with amoxicillin.  We went back to doctor about a week ago and said ear was still inflamed but not infected.  Does seem sore to the touch for her.  Does it warrant another trip to doctor?

Post auricular lymph node, possibly related to viral infection.In the absence of fever not of concern, but yet it would be prudent to visit again to make sure.
