Hello there... Small lump behind the ear is usually associated with parotid infections most of times...Is your mouth opening normal? in case of parotid swellings one can experience limited mouth opening with decreased salivary flow...Get and ultrasound on that particular side of the swelling to rule out the infection from parotid gland. You can consult an ENT or Maxilllofacial or General surgeon for further evaluation and management.

Hi thanks for your question.
From the symptoms you have described it looks like your having pharyngitis (infection of throat) and tonsilitis that is infection of tonsil.The swelling behind your ear could be an enlarged lymh node called post auricular lymhadenopathy.This enlarged lymph node along with swollen face could be due to pharyngitis and tonsilitis.
The second part of your problem that is bleeding with stool could be due to anal fissure or a pile mass and pain abdomen could be part same disease.
I would suggest you to consult a nearby physician specialist and get yourself investigated for these symptom comples and management of your symptoms can be done accordingly.
Hope this answers your question.
