Post lumps behind my ears

Hi there my 22 year old sister discovered several years ago a lump behind her ear, recently she found another two lumps behind her other ear. Does anyone know what it might be from?

Your sister should see a doctor because even if this is just a benign cyst, and not dangerous, it should nevertheless be examined by someone knowledgeable.

I just thought you might be interested to know that you have glands in that area behind your ears. I would say that they could be probably just swollen glands, or possibly just enlarged. I noticed that mine have been enlarged ever since I had mono back in high school (about 6 yrs ago). I would definitely get them checked out to be sure, but I wanted to offer you another "possibility" so you didn't get to worried about something that may be nothing. Hope everything goes well!
