Cysts behind left ear, swelling on facial nerve, pressure in ears. Surgery done. Treatment?

I have had a cyst behind my left ear 4 years ago. The doctor removed it completely. Roots and all... Although he did say he couldn t get it all due to a piece that was on my facial nerve . The past 7 days it has came back. But this time no lump. Just my ear is sticking out and I have pressure in my ear...what should I do. Ice ? Heat!? No lump so perhaps it will go away? Or can this be an internal thing?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
It is very difficult to say what exactly that you have. If there is pain and fever along with pressure in the ear then it could be a ear infection which has spread outside. If there isnt any then it is likely that the swelling has come back and this time it maybe deep seated and thus the absence of lump. If you feel the symptoms are persisting then it is better you visit a ENT specialist to rule out the exact cause of the problem and get the needed treatment.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
