Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding dime size lump behind your left ear. This is for quite a long time and usually does not hurt, it becomes painful on touching.

Considering your complaints it appears as a sebaceous cyst which has got infected now. But it will be better to do FNAC from this lump and than decide for treatment.
