Lump inside my ear lobe?

Hello!
I can feel this hard round thing when I touch slightly above my left ear lobe. It seems like it's probably 2mm in length, and it moves around a bit. You can't really see it from the outside, but if you look closely, it's kinda purple/blue-ish when the lump is. It doesn't hurt, but if I press it it kinda feels like I'm touching a bruise.
And I do not have my ears pierced.

Please help, I have no idea what it is!
Thank you!!

It might just be a little cyst.  I used to get them in my earlobes.  They were hard, and I always envisualised them as being a hardened lump that was white in color, for some reason.  I stopped getting them when I was out of my teen years.
