Cause Of The Appearance Of A Bump On The Auricle?
I ask, I have never pierced before, and I have a plan to be pierced, in the left ear, but from just sitting in a high school bank in my left ear like there is a small lump, it’s not too obvious, only if in press hard like there is a lump in it, I searched on google it was like pus. and I want to be pierced in the ear, near / the area around it, and I also do not know will be hit or not when I want to pierce there, so is there a solution or estimate / impact that will occur if I pierced there or in that area ?, thank you

Lumps in the earlobe are generally benign tumors found in the auricle. It is said to be a tumor, because this lump appears in parts of the body that should not exist. It is said to be benign because these cell changes may not lead to malignant cells, so they are not progressive.
Some of the conditions below can cause a lump in the earlobe or a benign tumor on the earlobe, such as:
1. infection of the auricle
2. inflammation of the oil glands or hair roots in the auricle
3. abscess or pus on the auricle
4. cysts of the auricle
5. insect bites
6. keloid or excessive growth of scar tissue
To ascertain the cause, clinical procedure steps are carried out by a family doctor or ENT doctor starting from interviews, physical examinations, supporting examinations if needed (such as an anomalous pathology examination). The results of the examination will be used as a basis for handling both the administration of drugs and surgery.
In connection with your question, if you have a bump on your earlobe, and you want to pierce on the same earlobe, then you should not be pierced at the point of this lump, because it will cause trauma to the tissue of this lump area, which is at risk of causing the lump to enlarge. Some steps you can take if you want to get your left ear pierced:
1. doing an action on the outside of the piercing or some distance from the bump.
2. do an examination with the ENT doctor to confirm this lump, so that the doctor can ascertain the cause and plan treatment or take this lump. If the lump is caused by a cyst on the auricle, then this lump can be removed first, then wait for it to heal. After recovering, your ears can be pierced at the same point. Or you can do the piercing as recommended and the doctor's plan after you do the direct examination.
Thus, the piercing you want does not aggravate this lump complaint or does not cause new problems with the bump on your auricle.
