Melanoma/asymmetrical mole growth within Ear Canal

Hey community,

I am not a medical professional, and I would like to seek suggestions on likely possibilities based on the information that I've posted below in this post.

I'm a male, 25 years old, and I typically am at home most of the time.

A month ago, I bought a household non-professional ear endoscope for ear wax removal. It provided a feature for me to also take videos and pictures while I am using it.

I noticed that there is a "flat" and asymmetrical large mole/melanoma on the surface of my ear canal of my right ear. Initially, I thought it was just dried wax, and I tried to dig it a little harder, and due to the friction, it was inflammed - so I stopped. It was at that moment that I realised that it was a mole/melanoma and I would like a second opinion on it, based on the attached images and videos below.

I would appreciate any suggestion on:

1. what it could be and;
2. probability of it being a cause of concern (skin cancer);
3. what are some likely troubleshooting/monitoring steps I should take to come to a better deduction
