Tender to touch and getting worse seems to feel achy. if I tough the area and press behind right ear there is a nodule and it runs down the neck area to right at chin . This has been here and getting worse for several months. What is it and what should I do? Thank you, LA donna

From history it seems that there might be having some infection in your ear, external or internal or having some infection on your scalp producing enalrged, tender lymph nodes.
Consult your doctor and get examined.
You might require one course of antibiotic medicine.
Ok and take care.
