See your doctor: It could be many things ranging from benign to dangerous causes: viral/bacterial infection, hyperthyroidism, tumor, cancer...Any lumps that don't go away need to be investigated to rule out possible cancerous process. Please see your doctor to investigate these signs and symptoms. Good luck.

See your doctor: The signs and symptoms you described do not lend to providing a bona fide consultation. Please see your doctor for a proper workup.

Neck lumps: The lump behind your ear is almost definitely a lymph node. The lump by the thyroid could also be a lymph node. I suspect an infectious rather than a thyroid source of your symptoms. A physical exam will help.
