What causes lump in the earlobe?

A few months ago i had a small lump in my left earlobe. It decreased in size and went away. Just recently, well overnight, pretty large. If you pay attention you might be able to realize i have it without feeling it but most of it you can not see. This thing does hurt when i apply pressure to it. Any help?

Hello. This is a benign cyst and nothing serious, but the only way to get rid of it permanently is to have a doctor fully excise it under local anesthesia
