Hi Miri,

It may be a lymph node.  They are easy to find behind the ear and around the throat. 

They help fight infections.  Have you been ill lately?  Have you been to the dentist?

I wouldn't necessarily worry about them.  Just be aware that they are there and how they normally feel.

Check with your doctor if you have any concerns.

Hope it helps.

Your lymphnodes may be swollen. As for the bump, that could just be anything and Im sure its not something to worry about as you said it is not painful or itch.
