Lump in the ear lobe. What is it?

Have a small hard bump in my earlobe , there is a weird scab on my earlobe and it hurts to squeeze it or try and pop it like a normal spot! Quite worried but there is no discharged and I only had my ear pierced drunken by a friend two and a half years ago, since then the hole has healed and this bump has only been there for about 2-3 weeks any ideas?

Seems like a cyst formation in the ear lobule. Common after ear pricks especially not done under aseptic conditions. Need to get it surgically excised. Regards
