A few years ago I had a hard growth in my ear canal and got it removed, now its growing again in the same spot. Why has it come back and what is it?

In brief: Maybe reoccurrence

Sometimes growths do reoccur. Have your ENT doctor take a look and see if it is a similar mass, similar location etc.

In brief: ENT Referral

You need to see your ENT again.
He/she will have the pathology of your last lesion, and be able to discuss it further.
