A Lump Near The Right Ear And Getting Bigger?
A lump around the ear is not typically caused by one condition. There are several things that can cause lumps around the ears, including:
Mastoiditis, an inflammation of the back of the ear due to the spread of infection from inside the ear. Usually there is an inflamed and pus-filled lump. Abscess, a pocket filled with pus Enlarged lymph nodes, usually no other complaint than a lump Lipoma, a benign tumor filled with fatty tissue Acne Cyst Skin tumor It is difficult to determine the cause of your ear lump without direct examination. The best treatment will be adjusted to the cause found. Most cases of infection are treated with antibiotics, but if the pus builds up it will need to be removed with minor surgery. Cases of benign tumors, such as lipomas and cysts, if they feel disturbing are also recommended for surgical removal. Consult further about this with a surgeon.
Some things to note about lumps in the ear:
Don't squeeze the lump Cold compress to reduce pain Sometimes a warm compress is effective enough to reduce the size of the lump Hope this helps
