I think you are enjoying the life to it's fullest so please continue with that a bit cautiously- if you can get hit by a standing poll while walking then....
Think of the time you are driving and another XXXXXXX passes by, you may land up in big trouble for yourself and others.
Anyway I think the swelling behind your ear is not a gland; it is a swelling/hematoma in both cases just take OTC pain killers for 5days, the things would settle down themselves.
About the sperm helping the breast problem is not oft utilised practice, so can't say about it.
But for that problem good quality moisturisers are available and can be applied twice a day.
I hope that answers your query.
