Ass.Wb n nDok. I am Subhan aged 23. I want to ask near my ear. There are a few small bumps. Why?
Hello, Subhan Sidhi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Ear lumps can be caused by several possible causes:
1. Otitis externa circumscripta: inflammation of the outer ear due to infection
2.Acne vulgaris (acne)
3.Abscess (collection of pus due to infection)
4. Sebaceous cysts (sac-shaped tissue filled with fluid, formed due to damaged or blocked sweat glands)
5.Lipoma (a collection of fatty tissue that forms a lump under the skin)
6. Mastoiditis (inflammation of the mastoid bone behind the ear, often due to infection in the middle ear)
7.Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes in response to inflammation or infection in the body)
The lump should be examined by a doctor to see which type it belongs. A doctor's examination is useful for determining the diagnosis and cause, so that therapy will be obtained in accordance with the cause and condition.
To avoid worsening, it's best not to touch or squeeze the bumps, especially if it's not done carefully and isn't clean. Don't put anything on the bumps. Also, keep the lump and its surroundings clean. If the lump is painful, you can try taking a pain reliever such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Immediately see a doctor if the lump is very painful, gets bigger, is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, night sweats, weight loss, or pain in swallowing.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
