Suggest a remedy for hard knots in the ear with bruises

I have a huge hard knot behind my left ear. It s been there for a while. I woke up Thursday and it was hurting and swollen so bad I was dizzy. The doctor tried to drain it Friday but it was hard as a rock and nothing came out. Now its bruised and more swollen. I m on medicine but it s not seeming to help any.
