Ear Lump?

Okay, so I have this lump under the skin on my ear. This has happened before in my ear lobe, where a small mass would suddenly appear. It would then grow larger, and would be painful to the touch, but it would eventually go away. I have noticed this happening every once in a while since, maybe, early high school (I am now 22). I didn't worry as I always expected it to go away when it would appear, and then I would forget about it. However, now it has appeared in the cartilage, and my whole ear is swollen. I have no idea what it is, could someone help me out? I didn't even know what section to post this in. I am kind of getting concerned. A little help, or direction?
