Lump in earlobe

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in earlobe


Avatar m tn As of today, the lump in my left earlobe seems to be getting bigger and the one in the right seems to be getting smaller. Neither one of them hurts now. The only time they have ever hurt was when I first found the one in my right earlobe, but that pain was bearable and went away. Could someone please tell me what is going on??? I would very much appreciate it.
Avatar n tn Hello. I get a lump on my earlobe every now and them. They grow to about 1 cm in diameter and are usually not painful or itchy. They go away spontaneously after a couple weeks. However, I got another lump, and this time, it extended down a little below the earlobe. I lanced it and tried to squeeze it, but I couldn't get anything to come out.

Now I my earlobe does not have a hard lump but i feel a soft squichy texture,my ear is a bit inflamated and a bit painful when it is touched. What could this be ?WHat Should i Do? Is there any home remedies?
Avatar m tn I felt under my arms and noticed that I had a medium-size lump (which I read that lymph nodes are found in the armpit area, too). I'm still not entirely sure if that has anything to do with the cysts in my ears. But basically, my armpit was sore for a day or two. Then the lumps basically disappeared.
Avatar f tn As of today, the pain and swelling has gone down somewhat. It feels like a firm lump right where my earlobe connects with my head and the skin on and around it has become very scaly and itchy. I'd love some insight as to what this could be and whether it's worth making a doctor's appointment for. Thank you!

Avatar f tn it doesn't hurt or anything its jus there, over the year i have seen the lump decrese in size but usually it was stays the same size. This morning i noticed a dark black mark on the lump. It still doesn't hurt or anything but now im just wondering why there is a dark mark on it?
Avatar n tn They can hurt but they don’t have to, the pain usually appears when the lump starts pressing on some nerve ending in the earlobe. Trying to squeeze them out will only cause you more pain and can worsen the infection. The safest solution is to go to a plastic surgeon and have the lump removed. Hope this helps. Bye.
Avatar f tn Sorry for the title, I want to correct it.
Avatar n tn I found a small hard lump just below the earlobe, like where the ear meets the side of my head. Any idea what this could be? I am kind of panicking incase it's something sinister. I do recall I actually had a spot on my ear a while back (not sure if the 2 are linked but it's something to consider). Any help/advice would be appreciated.
459111 tn?1250041908 It's a hard place to explain,It is right in that soft spot directly under the earlobe, right up in the soft bit where the crease is right up near ear cartilage. Went to Doctors he said its not the paritod gland and he said alhough its firm, it moves slightly he said it was a cyst, he said its smooth and oval . He stated it was not cancer, but to prove that its a cyst he said to have an ultrasound. I asked him many time while he was checking it, that is he quite sure its not cancer.
Avatar n tn Just recently i had a cold, sore throat, and more ear wax in my ears than usual. Ive had the lump for about three months. Any thoughts on what it is?
Avatar m tn About a month ago I got a lump on the back of my earlobe. It grew bigger and bigger and after using the internet I found out it was a cyst (I think). It gradually grew smaller then after a week or two it grew bigger again. A couple minutes ago I was looking at it and realised there was a small spot that was dark red and so popped it. A lot of blood and pus came out and so I squeezed it all out but I found that there was a small clear tendon that was inside the cyst.
Avatar n tn I have a tiny lump beneath my left earlobe and behind the jaw, in the little soft spot. Now, I read a question almost exactly like mine, however the asker's query was slightly different. Unlike their query, my lump did not appear suddenly. I have had it for a few years now. It hasn't increased in size, it's always just been there for the past few years. You can't see it, only feel it if you press your finger into the skin.
Avatar n tn i have a lump in my earlobe my fiance tell's me that its the result from not cleaning my peircing hole when i had an earing in my left ear can someone please explain this to me thank you for your prompt responce
Avatar n tn Hello. Tonight I noticed a hard, round lump about the size of a pea, maybe a little larger, on the top of my 5 year old's earlobe. It is not red, however, when I push on it he complains that it hurts. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance for any information you might provide.
Avatar f tn Don't worry about transient swelling on your earlobe. It is very unlikely to be cancer. In case you develop such a lesion again, you may like to avoid wearing ear rings for a while, or have a skin doctor examine you. All the best, and God Bless!
Avatar n tn hey, i have never posted here in reply to a question so i hope i can help, I occasionly have a lump behind my ear that usuallly appears when i am stressed or rundown and it can be painful not unbearable just noticable so i went to the doctor and he explained this lump is caused by my body fighting a bug or not being 100% well and trying to get rid of it,and even if you feel 100% you could still be fighting a bug. i have noticed that when i have a colds or feel extremly run down it appears again.
Avatar f tn The lump is on my right side.... I made an appt with my GP doc today. Because this itching thing is getting way out of hand and I cannot take it... SO maybe she can figure out something. I have had an x-ray of my chest maybe in June for pleurisy, to see if there was fluid in my lungs, but other than that, I have had nothing for my stomach... So, we'll see what it is.
Avatar n tn But over the last 4 days I have had a pain in the right side of my jaw. It's painful to yawn and to fully open my mouth. There is now a small bump located directly under my ear, behind my earlobe on my neck inbetween my jaw line and the large muscle on the right side of my neck, that little soft spot or pocket inbetween the skull and jaw.... The pain is moving into my ear and causing me to have headaches all through the day all on the right side of my head. Any ideas what this could be from?
Avatar f tn I went to rub my ear this morning and noticed a small lump at the hinge of my jaw, directly under my earlobe that is painful to press on. I was just at my dentist and he didn't notice anything unusual so I'm wondering if this is not a detail issue but a gland issue. Does anyone know what this could be? And will it go away or should I see a doctor or dentist? Thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar f tn If there's a bump in the area, there's always a possibility that it may be a tumor. A thorough examination by an oral surgeon would be a good next step. If you have no insurance for an oral surgeon, you may want to go see your regular primary care physician and see if he might be able to find you a referral through your medical insurance if possible. I can't tell you what the bump might be. If its not in the soft tissue, then that means there's a bump in the jaw bone itself.
Avatar n tn It is hard and painful when pressed. Right below my earlobe there is a small lump which is also painful. The are in front of my ear is infalmed and painful to press. I am expereincing nausea diffuculty falling asleep and irregular sweating. I also discovered a lump on my scalp aroung the same size as the one behind my ear. The skin on my scalp is also affected with soreness on the lump. What might it be and are the two things perhaps connected?
Avatar n tn I have a painless lump behind my jaw. Exactly where my jaw earlobe and neck meet. Should I be concerned or is it one of those things that you were discussing with others on this site, that it is only a cyst. or an inflammed thyroid.
