Question: About an hour ago a bump popped out on my face next to my ear lobe about the size of a walnut and hard. Is this something bad?

Brief Answer:
Seems to be nothing serious, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
It could be either folliculitis or enlarged lymph node.
I don’t think it is anything serious as it has come up in such a short duration.
Still I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the bump under the report section of the site so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.
