Need medication for lump noticed behind the right ear

i noticed a lump behind my right ear, which i believe lies in my temporal bone. its feels like a part of my bones, though there's a slight pain that i feel when i put on a little pressure. The feeling that i get is the same as when i get a slight bruise. Is it something that should alarm me?

I would like to inform that most probably you maybe suffering from the oateoma of temporal bone but to rule out other disease you may go for the CT scan temporal bone.
