Suggest treatment for a lump appearing under the ear

My 8 month old son has had a low grade fever of 100.3 for the past two days, and last night we noticed he has a lump under his left ear. Nothing under right ear. He has had a cold for about 1 week and we went to the doctor on Thur. and they said he was fine, no ear infection or pneumonia; just a cold. Nurses hotline said mastoiditis, but he has not had any ear infections. Should I be concerned and take him to the doctor, we are going on a 16 hour car ride for vacation in 2 days.

Hi,Dear,
Thanks for the query to HCM.I studied your problem in depth and I understood your concerns.
You should be concerned for the lump below ear with high fever.
Hence you should attend to ER paediatrician who would treat it for
-Viral Mumps,to reduce fever and secondary complications of it-which would maintain progenicity of your son.
This advise is based on the facts from the history you give.
Hence I would advise you to check with ER Paediatrician urgently.
So dont build up wrong concepts and create more psychic complications in you which would increase risks and costs to you.
Hope this would relieve your problem.
Wellcome for any more query in this regard to HCM.
Write good resume and Click thanks if you feel satisfied with my advise.
Have a Good Day.
