hello and welcome to HCM,
First of all let me tell you that many of my patients have the kind of swelling you mentioned without any problems whatsoever. And they usually disappear in a week or two.
But any mass or swelling has to be properly examined by the ENT and only then we can be perfectly sure that you are fine.
So consult another ENT, ask for a proper examination and maybe request for a FNAC or biopsy
to confirm the diagnosis
If needed then start a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory medications as a first attempt to reduce the swelling in consultation with the doctor
Also get your ears examined and maybe tested with audiometry
to get a proper diagnosis of your popping problem
Remember that even scalp
or skin lesions can cause lumps like this so consult your dermatologist
take care and get well soon
