Hello, the bump behind your ear could be the normal mastoid process which is prominent behind our ear or a lymph node. I have seen nodes behind the ear that needed excision. See your doctor for a recommendation.

I consistently get hard bumps behind my ears that disappear after a few days. Does this indicate something about my lifestyle that I need to change?

Lymph nodes

Eat_healthy
The hard bumps behind the ears are likely just lymph nodes. Just eat healthy and keep an eye on them. They will come and go. If they stay around for more than a few weeks, they need to get checked. Food luck!

Dr. Vasu K. Brown answered:

What might it mean if you have small bumps starting behind your ears and spreading down your neck and under your jaw?

Need to see it

Teeth
This is a pretty vague description. Are these bumps on the skin or under the skin? What do they look like? Are they painful? Skin stuff generally needs to be seen to tell what it is.

MRI shows infection in the ear behind the ear . What does this mean?

Mastoiditis

Mri
The mastoid is a sinus in the skull composed of a series of tiny ear spaces created by a plexus of bony dividers. It is connected to the middle ear by a tube called the aditus ad antrum mastoideum and can convey microorganisms from the middle ear to the mastoid. Without seeing your MRI difficult to know what you have, but see an ENT doctor soon.
