Thanks for posting your query.
From the history you seem to have a condition called as sebaceous cyst on the ear lobe. This denotes that your oil gland gets excessively filled up with sebum. This condition has to be surgically tackled that is removed completely. If you don't like that idea it may be treated with a oral drug like isotretinoin. But this drug should be given only if you are not planning to get married for at least one year or if you are married and has two children as it may affect your child birth temporarily.
good day
