May have infection: It is possible that popping the bump allowed the area to become infected. If the aching doesn't go away or if you have redness, warmth, or severe tenderness in the area, you should see a doctor to be evaluated for an infection.

Middle vs outer ear: There are several reasons for ear pain. Your family doc needs to examine you to determine if you have an middle or outer ear infection. Painful bump behind ear coincident w/ear pain makes me think of an outer ear infection, especially if pushing/pulling on ear is painful (this doesn't tend to affect pain from middle ear infection). Outer ear infection is common in swimmers and surfers. ...Read more

Don't squeeze it/prick it! ...Read more
