What is this behind my ear?

Woke up one day and behind my ear I find a lump... it hurts for the most part. is squishy. I had something like this before but I do not rememeber it hurting. I eventually popped it like a zit. this lump hurts too much to try and pop. what is it?

It could still be a zit- sometimes it can take a while for the infection to come out.  If it continues to bother you, it wouldn't hurt to go get it looked at.
