I have a hard nonmovable lump behind left ear

I have a hard nonmovable lump behind my ear . What I mean by behind my ear is approximatley two inches from top of my ear, on my head, and about two inches above my lobe . From my limited understanding of anatomy , I believe the lump is located over my temperal bone. I noticed the lump a few weeks ago. My insurance will not be available for another 4-6 weeks, however. Does this issue require any immediate attention? Thank You

from the description it seems you are having some bony swelling or it maybe a dermoid
most likely it is benign in nature
if it is fast growing consult surgeon without delay
if slow growing and no other complain except swelling you may probably wait for the insurance
hoping early settlement
