Red lump behind ear lobe, no pain. How to keep swelling down?

I have a red lump behind my ear lobe... It's not painful unless pressure is applied. It started a day or two ago, I don't know if its a sabeceous cyst or something else. I can't get into the doctor for another week and was wondering if there is something I could do in the meantime to keep the swelling down? There is no head on it just a smooth somewhat red bump.... Any suggestions?

Hi!. Thanks for your query. The bump may be a Sebacious Cyst / plain Lymphoma. Needs excision and biopsy if its lymphoma. See a ENT specialist and follow his advice. Take care.
