Have hard lump at bottom of ear canal. No pain. What could it be?

hello, I have a hard lump at what feels like towards the bottom of my ear canal . I have no pain and it feels like the lump moves slightly when presses reasonably firmly, it is not very big but I do have a feeling of fullness in my ear. You cannot see anything when you look at the area only when the lump is pressed can it be felt. It is in my right ear, the left feels normal. What could this be? Thanks

thanks for your query.
There are two possibilities 1. parotid lymphadenitis & 2. pleomorphic adenoma.

It needs to be evaluated.
Consult your ENT specialist and get examined. Do Fine needle aspiration cytology and ultrasonography.

Its a benign lesion no need to worry.
thanks, take care.
