sore on my dogs ear

My dog has the sore on here ear. It looks like a zit. But its hard. The skin is raised around an area where a white hard substance is sticking out. The skin is not discolored in any way that I know of. The white hard portion looks like a ball on top of the mound but you can tell it is more stick like and continues into the mound. What is it? I think if could be a type of bug that burrowed in there but she has never gotten anything like it before.  Any suggestions?

A raised mass on the ear can be due to a skin tumor, foreign object under the skin, cyst, or a reaction to an insect bite/sting. I recommend having the mass checked by your veterinarian--they can take a sample with a needle to diagnose it, and to evaluate if it needs to be surgically removed.
Good luck,
