Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders
I have a bump in my ear lobe
I woke up and i felt a bump in my ear lobe. If i push on it or put pressure on it it hurts i dont have one on my other ear. Its not very noticable unless you feel my ear lobe
You probably have an infected cyst of your ear lobe. You need to see an otolaryngologist; you may need antibiotics or surgical excision of the cyst.
