This is Dr. David

most likely your diverticulosis and painful lumps behind your left ear are not connected.

the painful lumps could be due to blocked parotid gland or inflamed lymph nodes or subaceous cysts or ingrown hair follicles.

they don't sound related to diverticulosis.

do you have a doctor you can see who can look at these painful lumps?
