Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you are having enlarge lymph node back of your ear.
It indicates that there is some chronic. infection in your ears,throat,neck or on the scalp.
If there is no pain or tenderness on the part, nothing to worry.
It may remain for long time.
Keep your ears,scalp clean and healthy.
Ok and bye.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is inappropriate to conclude from your description alone.
The only solution is to see a surgeon - get examined / get it removed / get the biopsy report
Everything else is guess work

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
