Have bump behind ear, painful, red, bony prominence. What is it?

I have a small about dime sized bump behind my right ear and I think it's on the bone because it kind of feels like a bone sticking out and I checked the other side to make sure I wasn't just imagining things and sure enough I wasn't. It is slightly painful if touched . I noticed it about 3 or 4 days ago. I think it is alittle red but not sure , my mom didn't say but what could it be ? and should I get it checked out ?
