You should take the child to a doctor, but when my son had a lump in an area behind his ear and close by his neck, with fever, he had strep throat. ===ANOTHER ANSWER=== It could also indicate an infection of the sinus system. Have your child seen at a clinic, family doctor or an ENT doctor (ear, nose and throat doctor)
