Purplish lump near the ear, pain on touching with occasional itching. What could it be?

Hi, I m sixteen years old, and recently found a purplish lump by my ear, not behind it, beside it. It doesn t hurt normally, but occasionally itches and hurts quite badly if it is touched. Any ideas on what this could be?
