What's this lump under my ear?

I just noticed this lump under my ear about the size of a 5c piece I think it's only popped up in the last 12 hours what could it be? I'm a 18 year old male in case that matters

It could be an inflammed lymph node, which could be related to mumps, mono, an infected tooth, or even something like a sebaceous cyst.  Pressing on it will only make it hurt more.  You should have it checked out.
