Hard immovable lump in front of left ear. Had throat & sinus infections. What this could be?

Hello, two months ago I felt a very small, hard and immovable lump right in front of my left ear. At the time I had throat and sinus infections, but the lump didn t go away after the infection was gone. The lump is still there, it s not growing, it s not visible, but I can feel it under my fingers. I don t have any health insurance and I don t feel like seeing a doctor, but I have no clue what this could be?

Thanks for the query,

It might be a swollen lymph node.

Some times the lymph node remains swollen even after the infection subsides.

Dont worry it will not remain persistant.

Just keep a watch, if it increases in size, you must meet a doctor.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
