I am unable to give : you a diagnosis without actually seeing the lump and performing certain tests. Is it towards the jawline, fevers? Is the lump diminishing as your ear gets better? if yes then monitor if it continues for more than 2 weeks, I recommend visiting your primary for a thorough evaluation.
