behind the ear are usually the lymph nodes which gets tender on repeated pressure ,so avoid pressing and seeing it , in case if it enlarges than go for FNAC other wise let it go by itself

Seems to be acute post aural lymphadenitis. Usually antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment. You also need to use anti dandruff shampoos. Pain will reduce first and swelling will resolve slowly. Wait for at least a month before going for fine needle aspiration cytology.
