Brief Answer:
Post a picture / consider visiting a surgeon...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

From what I understand, you seem to have localised pain with lumps behind the ear. As the lumps are causing sharp pain, it seems to be tensely filled. From this description, I assume the lumps to be due to some acute infection with a tensely filled lump. Such lesions needs to be drained by a surgeon.

If my assumption is wrong, I will like you to post pictures of the affected areas here. There is an option to upload pictures on this page.

Awaiting your response...
