bump/lump behind ear that comes and goes, tumor?

i know you guys are probably going to tell me to see a doctor, which i will but i thought i might ask the revscene people first, and hope someone had same or simular problem befor.

so here is the story, i did see a doctor first about 9 months ago for this problem when it first occured, the doctor gave me some betaderm cream 0.1% and so far it worked.. but then 9 months later(today) the bump/lump appeared again after touching the same spot where i had the bump/lump. it does seem like the more i touch it, the bigger it will get the next day but not right away, this thing doesnt get super huge but pretty small, maybe 1 cm in diameter..

i am kinda scared it could be a tumor?? hoepfuly someone had the same problem as me and knows what it could be, the bump/lump is behind my ear and it does feel kinda hard but not super hard.

probably a swollen lymph node, or a nodule forming (they are permanent but benign)

Go see a doctor if you're concerned.

Last time I had a swollen lymph node, I had to go see a specialist.

For examination I got a camera shoved up my nose

I had the same thing before as well. It would come every 1-2 months and then subside. My doctor said it was a sebaceous cyst. Luckily, I haven't experienced one in over 3 years now.
