Lump on neck behind ear, not cancer, taking antibiotics. Cause?

My daughter s teacher has a noticeable lump on the right side of her neck , beneath her ear. Now a second one has presented on the left side, still beneath the ear but further back, towards the hairline. She has had a biopsy and it is NOT cancer . Her doctor is putting her on a second course of steroids and antibiotics and wants to do an intensive blood panel on her. What could be causing these lumps?
