Raised vessel in my right ear. what this could be if anyone has experienced similar symptoms ?

Hi I have had a problem with a vein/vessel raised behind my right ear for some time now. It is very easy for other people to see and is extremely painful when i tilt my head to the side and when I try and touch my ear. I cannot put any kind of pressure on my ear when the swelling happens. I have been to the doctors countless times with it and now I just feel a bit lost for where to go next but it regularly can ruin a weekend and makes it very hard to concentrate in my job. Would appreciate greatly some insight into what this could be/ if anyone has experienced similar symptoms ? Thanks

I am unsure as to whether its a vessel or vein of some sort. I have had it again today, it is unbearable to touch yet the doctors will do nothing about it, say my ear looks clean and the right colour
Is it possible to see a ENT specialist without NHS referral?
