Structures that can: be felt there include lymph nodes (both behind the ear and towards the spine), the mastoid process (which is also behind the ear) and the neck muscles that insert near the midline of the back of the skull. Reasons to be concerned include: pain or tenderness, increasing size, ear ache, headache or fever. Otherwise, it's unlikely to be some to worry about. Dr. Anne
