Inside my ear canal I have a large dark green thing. What this might be ?

Inside my ear canal I have a large dark green thing (it almost looks like a large piece of seaweed ) covering half of my ear drum and my ear drum is a normal dark purple color but with white spots on it ( the white spots almost look like someone dotted the eardrum with white out.) I also noticed today I have a huge bump in the beginning of the ear canal that is skin color . I can t hear that well now and my ear inside and out is extremely sore. My ear feels clogged and every-now and then I get a intense pain in the ear drum and the bump is causing the other ear and ear canal to be super sore. Anyone know what this might be have a appt with my general Dr tomorrow, just concerned and of course sleeping is difficult right now.

Thanks for query,
It seems that you have got formed abscess in the external ear and probably abscess in the middle ear too.
I think it should be excised and pus should be drained out.
Take anti inflammatory and antibiotic medicine.
Consult ENT sp. as soon as possible.
ok and bye.
