What causes bump in the ears while having cholesteatoma?

I currently have a lump/bump on the very top of my left concha (or at least I think it is), there is a smaller similar bump on the right ear also. I can t get a picture as I can t see it, it feels hot and itchy. I have Cholsteatoma in both ears so wear a hearing aid (have done for years with no similar symptoms so I know it s not coming from that. Any ideas??
