Thanks for query,
It seems that probably you might have enlarged lymph node.
Many a times it remains for long time after the treatment.
nothing to worry,if it remains there,but observe the size,if increases then get it operated.
Another possibility is that you might have bony prominence behind the ear.
ok and bye.
