Ear piercing swollen?

i got my second ear piercing about 2 years ago, and today i was touching my ears and i felt this bump right where the piercing was. i haven't wore earrings in them for a few months though. i was playing around with them and i was able to squezze white stuff out of the piercing and the bump went away but it's still a little swollen compared to my other ear. do you guys know why it just suddenly happened?

Sounds like it was pocket of pus; infected.  

I would have your physician check it.
