in the afternoon, my sister experienced ear pain on the right, the inside of her ear. This pain has been felt for a month. At first he was on a school holiday on the island, in the heat. On the way home and then felt ear pain, marked by discharge in the ear accompanied by fluid. A week later he had a nosebleed which was bleeding quite a lot. Then we took him to the health center where he was given regular drops. But the pain did not go away, so we decided to take him to the hospital at the ENT clinic. The doctor said he had a lot of dirt in his ears, then he was given FORUMEN medicine. A week after the control returned to the hospital, the doctor cleaned the dirt in his ears, then gave another medicine, namely TARIVID. The following week the doctor said that his ears were clean, but there was still a little bit of dirt left, and because the equipment was not sufficient, my sister was advised to be referred to the AM hospital. At the AM hospital, the doctor noticed a lump in the middle of his ear, and then gave him regular drops again. A week later, the control was again given OTOPAIN and 3% H2O2. Because my sister was still in pain, and I saw a pink lump with pus and blood, we were worried and took her to the ENT specialist’s office for treatment. Arriving at the ENT clinic, the doctor cleaned the blood and pus that had accumulated in his ear, then inserted the instrument into his ear, and on the computer it was seen that there was a lump the size of a green bean seed, pink in color and with an eye in the middle. Then the doctor said that yesterday the doctor did not see a lump because it was blocked by his earwax, and now it is clearly seen that there is a lump and says that this lump is causing the pain. Then the doctor gave the drug TARIVID and ordered for a follow-up the following week, and said if it didn’t get smaller, then surgery would be done, and maybe it could be a TUMOR. However, blood and pus was still coming out, the lump didn’t shrink until now, and the left ear also hurts like the right ear. From December 25 to January 25, my sister was sick. What kind of illness is my sister suffering from? does it have to be operated on? And how to clean his ears of pus and blood clots? what we’re afraid of is this a hallmark of ear cancer? Thank you doctor

1 Answer:

Hello, Princess. As explained by your ENT doctor, that there is a lump in your sister's ear that was previously invisible because it was covered in dirt. These lumps can also be caused by:

Abscess (collection of pus under the skin) in the ear. It is caused by infection. In abscess, the treatment is with antibiotics. If the antibiotic response is given, there is no need for further action
A cyst is a sac filled with fluid
Folliculitis or inflammation of the hair follicles in the ear
Tumor
Cancer

To be more certain, of course, you should ask the ENT doctor who has treated your sister. The doctor has done the right procedure by doing treatment and seeing the response of the drug first. In addition, later when the lump does not shrink, the doctor will perform other examinations that are deemed necessary such as X-rays, CT scans, and other examinations. To determine whether it is cancer or not, further examination is needed. It is recommended that you follow the treatment advice given by an ENT doctor. For that your sister can do at home is:

Avoid squeezing or picking lumps
Clean the liquid that comes out with sterile gauze
Avoid picking at the ear with objects, such as cotton buds
Keep your ears dry
Take medication regularly
