Lump: Most likely this is a small lymph node and likely not significant. However you should see your doctor if it persists.

Lymph node: There are thousands of lymph node located around the body that help screen out germs in the serum before it returns to the circulation. There are many in the neck, head and behind the ear. At rest these are often 1/4 inch in diameter and may grow to marble sized when reacting to a stimulus. Bug bites, or viral infections can increase their size.They should shrink down to nl size over a few wks.
