It's not only the odd looks (of which some martial artists are proud of), but it can also reduce your hearing ability. The natural form of the pinna/outer ear has evolved to reflect sounds into the ear and is also important for your ability to localise from what direction a sound comes from. In the worst case it can get swollen that much that it closes the entrance of the ear. Then hearing is reduced like having a plug in that ear.
To the OP, go an ask your doctor. It also depends of the size of your hematoma on how much time it will need to heal. But be quick, when the fibrous tissue is already built you cannot puncture it anymore, but will need surgery to get rid of it.
