started with some swelling lower left side skull behind ear.
Can be infection or spondylosis.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and mild swelling that you have noticed behind the ear can be due to a swollen lymph node due to an infection in the area or due to spondylottic changes in the cervical spine. A direct examination and an MRI scan of the neck area will help in the proper diagnosis. Taking rest, avoiding using a pillow, mild pain killers and a hot compress can help in relieving this pain.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
