Lump, burning pain: Painful lump behind ear is typically an infection either in a local cyst or an inflamed node secondary to infection in the head& neck area. Painless lumps can sometimes be more sinister if hard and associated with a sore inside the mouth, neck area. Burning pain in neck, back, chest area maybe associated with nerves. Itchiness? See your pcp for a full assessment and get referred to specialists.
