I will tell you my story.
My husband has a history of getting cysts behind his ears. He has had them surgically removed, but they always seem to come back. I have never had
one before, but this time last year....lo and behold, I apparently had one (behind my ear....exactly where you said in the OP).
He told me that I had to see a doctor, and have it cut out. I said, "Hell no!" lol, and started to search online for natural remedies. I read
about using tea tree oil & lavender oil (essential oils, both together in one bottle)...so I went out and bought one.
Twice a day I would dab the oil right on the 'cyst' with a q-tip.
Within a short time, I noticed that the pain and size were decreasing. After about a week and a half, I touched the 'cyst' and it now felt like it
had a long wide scab, running vertically. Nothing had oozed out....nothing was wet.
The scab stayed for longer than I expected, but I tried not to disturb it. Eventually it crumbled away.
I'm left with a tiny bit of 'scar tissue'....basically, it's gone.
When the scab first appeared, I jokingly (?) said, "Hey! I think the tea tree oil stuff has melted my implant!"
Apparently if you don't get them cut out, the root remains...and they grow back. I still don't know what was in the lump, but it's gone now. I
remain somewhat creeped out.
