I have experienced this very recently. The doctors did not know what I had, they were thinking the mumps, then some other disease very similar to the mumps, and all the antibiotics that they were giving me was not working. We soon found out that I had cat scratch fever. If you have cats or have been scratched by a cat in your facial area, this is most likely what it is. It is not contagious, and the lumps will be there for 2-4 months. Bring this up with your doctor because I got a special medicine that helped the lump go down quite a bit. Hope this helps!

Infection. There are lymph nodes behind the ear and on the neck, and swelling -generally- means infection. See a doctor to find out what it is and get an antibiotic.

I've never heard of that. I'd say that it is possibly calcium deposits or some type of cysts. You should ask your doctor just to be safe.

A hard lump on the wall of your gum can be a gum abscess. It could also be a non-cancerous growth due to an irritation. Any lumps found on the gum or mouth should be seen by a dentist or your doctor.

You should go and see your doctor, as they will be able to examine them and tell you what they are, and if you need medication for them.

It is probably a cyst. A vet will have to remove it to dissect it to know what the exact cause of it is.

Its best to get any lumps aspirated at the vet to be on the safe side.

Lymphoma does not usually present in this manner, I believe you meant to say, could a lump on my back be a lipoma (benign fatty tumor). The above is true, but would like to add that fatty lumps (even hard lumps) are not always cancerous. ANY LUMP should be seen by your doctor so get in there ASAP. It will put your mind at rest.
