General & Family Physician 's  Response
From history it seems that he might be having Lipoma on back.
It gives pressure on the nerve and soft tissues producing neck pain and radiating pain to ears.
Consult surgeon and get examined.
If size is increasing and producing pressure symptoms, it should be removed.
Ok and take care.
