It is called an othaematoma or aural haematoma and is as a result of shaking the head. It will need to be drained by your vet. Some performed surgery on the ear while others drain it daily for a few days. Surgery sounds indicated here. The cause of the head shaking needs to be determined - e.g. ear infection, ear mites etc or the shaking will not stop.
