Thanks for writing to the forum!
Lumps in that area could be a localized collection of fat, a swollen lymph node, an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection) or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in a nerve). The lymph nodes can swell due to dandruff, internal ear infection or caries in tooth.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage, without examining the lumps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
My daughter had the same situation, I took her to the emergency room when they diagnosed her with the lumps she got discharded and the dr said to bring her back in case it got worst. Now she grew one more lump[ and hurst worst. What should I do where do I take her now?
