for the swollen glands your doctor can give you antibiotics.  there was a couple of times that i found lumps behind my left ear.  eardrops took care of them.  must have been some build up from the sinusis.

I suddenly have a lump that showed up on the my right ear just below the ear lobe, its small but very painful to touch and is very hard. It moves when you touch it and it has caused my ear a slight swelling. It's not red or anything and the ear lobe doesn't hurt when it's touch, if anyone has some kinda of info on what it could be please email me at ***@****.
