Thanks for writing to us.
A small painful lump in front of your tragus is likely to be due to a swollen lymph node. Usually it is indicative an infection in the ear or on the scalp. You need a detailed examination to find out the cause of swelling. Systemic antibiotics will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
