Non-movable lump behind right ear, tension headaches, body pain. Related symptoms?

I have a quarter size non movable lump behind my right ear. Its not really painful unkless you push on it but on a scale of 1 to 10 its only a 3. I noticed this lump about the time I started getting tensions headaches . I have had a headache of some kind for 2 months now. I am also having bone pain for a lack of better words. Do you think this is related? Someone told me that the knot/lump is headache knot and someone else said just a swollen note.

Hi dear

Welcome to the Health Care Magic

The lump behind the (post auricular lymph node) is usually very benign lymph node.
Usuall cause for this node is infection in the scalp hairs like dandruff. lice or small boil in the scalp etc. and accordingly cause should be treated to treat the lump.

Cause of headache could be some different which should be looked on.

Hope your query is answered with your satisfaction
