What causes pain in the ear with lump and tinnitus?

The area behind my ear hurts I just woke up with it the pain travels up my head. I felt a lump it is on the right side but not on the left. I never felt this or had it before. Other problems I had have are nosebleeds, red dots on my leg, ringing in my ear from time to time since young. I am 16 years old and a female. Can you tell me what s wrong with me or possible reasons.

Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response

Pain in the ears with lumpy feeling may be due to mastoiditis or middle ear pressure or eustachian tube block or postauricular lymphadenopathy.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Please consult your ENT specialist/physician they will examine for an external or internal problem then treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
