Thanks for contacting HCM
There is much time gap between pierced ears and lump on the each side of neck about 2 and 1/2 years
Lump is about 2 cm in size
therefore better to go for biopsy .

If ear piercing whole is having chronic infection then there might be having chronic enlarge lymph nodes.
See that is she is having this problem in her piercing point ?
There might be having some infection in her ears as well.
Now it seems that active infection took place giving rise to pain and trouble some lump.
Consult your doctor and get examined.
Ok and take care.

i think better to go for biopsy rather than guessing about the problem and getting tension instead of treating
biopsy is the test in which we can find out exact cause and treat it if requires
it is a simple procedure to get the exact problem and treat accordingly
