A lump like this`: really needs to be felt by your PCP (Primary Care Provider) however it sounds like an old inflammed LYMPH NODE (gland) from an old infection! The LOCATION as well as the SIZE and CONSISTANCY are used to determine if it needs to be removed! Get it seen! Hope this helps! Dr Z

Not cancer: It is likely a mucus cyst due to trauma to the cheek. See your dentist or your doctor at your convenience.

Ear bump: Could be inflamed sebaceous cyst. Hot packs may help. May need excision when calmed down to prevent recurrence.
