Lump behind my ear worrying, what is it?

So about 5 days to a week ago I noticed a small hard lump just behind my ear on my head. It isn’t painful as such but when I press the the lower left side I experience a slight amount of pain. I thought it may be because of some mosquito bites I had as I’m allergic to them. I’ve had bad infections from them in the past and been on antibiotics, this time one was infected but not as bad as last time so I didn’t take any antibiotics for it. However the bites are better and the lump hasn’t gone down. Just this morning I began experiencing pain coming from the lump and travelling up my head and down around the bottom of my ear. This lump is very worrying to me and I would really appreciate some information. I’m a 15 year old female who is usually physically healthy.

I have been telling myself it is random hair l missed shaving on my legs or hair tangled in my clothes l can't seem to find. It is so annoying. Also been been diagnosed with high cortisol level and hyperthyroidism. Get checked out,  not worth not feeling comfortable in your own skin. Going to try a detox and natural remedies since its been doctor appointment one after another last few years and finally found out about the cortisol imbalance a few days ago. Good luck everyone!

Hello~How are you feeling now?

If you are not any better, I would suggest seeing a chiropractor. Now, I know they can help mosquito bites, but that lump might be a clue that you have a misplaced vertebrae in your neck, this could be causing the pain and earache.

I hope you are better, but if not, please give my suggestion a try. God bless you.
