I have a hard lump on my mastoid bone, I m fifty percent deaf in the ear that it is behind, I know it s not a lymph node because it up a little higher than where that is, and I ve experienced a swollen lymph node before. but I ve had a terrible earache in that ear and headaches for as long as I ve had the bump for about a week now.

since you have earache, on the mastoid bone acute onset, most likely it could be abscess from middle ear infection. deafness may also be due to damage of middle ear. kindly visit your ENT doctor ASAP for the solution. high antibiotic, pain killers and if needed surgical approach may be done.

wishing you good health
