Is a hard lump in the ear lobe dangerous?

I have a lump at the lower part of the ear (soft part), it have gotten bigger and it is a bit hard. but now it didn t increase in size. it hurts only when I hit it, if I don t touch it doesn t bother me. from yesterday it seems that the size went down a little, and it feels like I always need to scratch it. is it soemthign serious?

You have some sebaceous cyst like lesion or some skin adenexal tumour. You should go for biopsy or fine needle aspiration cytology. Then you should take treatment accordingly.
