I would like call it preauricular cyst, as Raul did, but the cartilage found looks like something well structured, resembling tragus...how about an odd accessory tragus?

I considered that the elastic cartilage could be part of the normal cartilage of the auricle as in general surgeons take some of this cartilage for treating prearicular cysts.

Also though of type 2 first branchial cleft cyst that has squamous epithelium and cartilage but it has to connect to the external auditory canal link

Dear Geoff, thank you for correcting the images.

About the case, I go with preauricular sinus, or preauricular cyst as Raul wrote.
