Small lump behind ear on skull

I noticed a small hard lump on skull behind ear . def not a pimple. It's the size of a pea. Last couple days it was painful to touch the underside of the bone it's on. And now the lump. I read about a mastoid ear infection but not sure.

So make a doctor's appointment and have them look at it.

Sounds like an inflamed lymphoid.  If it doesn't go down in a couple days, go to the doctor.
