What does a hard lump on head above the ear indicate?

Hi, I have a hard lump on the right side of my head about two inches above my right ear. I noticed it several years ago but I thought maybe I hit my head or something, a few years ago, I noticed that it has grown. My Dr thinks it's bone. Is it exostosis?
