It is unclear what this is.  It could be a pseudocyst of the ear, an infected inclusion cyst (sebaceous cyst), or represent a more diffuse systemic inflammatory problem.  See your physician for a full exam.  If there is a question, they can refer you to an ENT physician for a full evaluation.

If you would like you could post or send a photo of your ear; perhaps that would help with the diagnosis.
