lumps in earlobes

I have two piercings in each ear and they have lumps in them.  The ears in the left ear have small soft lumps in them and the right ear had a bigger and hard lump in it.   I was told that they were calcium deposits and to massage them to loosen up the lump so that it would go away, but it has not gone away.  I would like to know how to prevent them from appearing and also how to get rid of them.

"calcium deposits?"  In my opinion, they sound like keloids and they will NOT go away on their own.  Massage will NOT do anything for the keloids.  I have had them myself.  

Goggle "keloids" and see what you think.

I would reconsulting a Dermatologist for an assessment/recommendations.
