Is swelling around the ear a swollen lymph node?

I have some swelling in between my right ear and jaw bone. I also have pain kind of like a head ache on the right side of my head. I also had a bad nose bleed today. Are the pain and nose bleed coincidental? Could it be a swollen lymph node? Is this something I should go see the doctor about?

Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
The swelling between the ear and jaw bone can be an enlarged lymphnode secondary to any infection in and around ear. The bleeding in the nose can be because of any infection in the nose or any bleeding disorder. So consult an ENTsurgeon and get it evaluated.
I hope I have answered your query.
Take care
