What could brownish substances in the ear be?

I have a brown thing growning in my ear. I was told that it wasn't anything to worry about and had it frozen off. But it came back and has grown and it sometimes has a smell. It is ugly and i just want it gone. But when you don't have insurance that is a problem. But i would like to know what it is.

Thank for asking to HCM.
Your clinical history is suggestive of ear wax in ear .
If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you use wax dissolving ear drop 4 drops five times for 5 days. Don't put any object to clean ear . Get it clean by doctor.
Hope above information helpful to you .
I find this answer helpful
