Black spot behind ear, no pain. What could this be?

My little girl has had her ears pierced for over 2 yrs now and we just recently changed them out and there was a black spot on back of one ear and it feels like there is a bump also in same ear..Is this something to be concerned about? She has never complained about it hurting..And we have asked her as of now as she still says no hurting.

Dear Concerned.,
Thanks for writing to us.

As per your history let me analyse the same and give you the probabalities,

A)If the raised bump has appeared after the piercing attached to pierced portion,it is a case if Implantation Dermoid which can be removed by a minor Surgery under local anaesthesia.
B)If it is a bump with a smooth surface with a pointing and firm to press, it could be a non-infected Sebaceous Cyst.
C)The black spot could be a simple mole which could be left as it is. If it is painful/increasing in size/any bleeding through that the it needs intervention.

Kindly consult a General Surgeon for further Management please.
Wishing you a speedy recovery,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
