Hi,

If the swelling is inside the canal it can be exostosis causing blockage of the canal. If it is below or behind the pinna, it will be an inflammatory lymph node which is commonly noticed in case of minor infections.

Better you can get an FNAC (Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology) done to know what exactly is that lesion.
