Hi , i have a grape sized lump under my left ear right behind my jaw bone. i am gauging my ears, & that ear is sore, so could it be just a infection?

Yes: It could be "just an infection", but this should be evaluated by your doctor and treated appropriately. If you were concerned that this lump might be a cancer that seems improbable, but a doctor needs to see it and feel it to be certain what it is likely to be due to.
