Many possibilities: It is hard to tell you without a photo, but it could be anything from scar tissue, to granulation tissue (inflammatory), & infection, to an unrelated benign/malignant lesion. See your ENT or dermatologist for an appropriate examination.

Bump: There are many possible complications including hypertrophic scar. Please see dermatology or ENT.
