Hello Sulastri, thank you for the question. The ear is an important part of our hearing system. The ear is where sound vibrations enter and transmits sound vibrations through the ear nerve to the brain. The ear consists of 3 parts namely the outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. The auricle is part of the outer ear. This part of the earlobe consists of skin that has oil and sweat glands. While the forming bone is cartilage. The appearance of a lump in the earlobe can be caused by:

inflammation of the outer ear / otitis externa

folliculitis
cartilage inflammation/perichondroitis
lymph node enlargement
wart

A lump on the lower earlobe is most often caused by inflammation of the outer ear or otitis externa. In otitis externa, it can happen that the ear forms a pimple-like lump or the skin is dry and reddened. Otitis externa can be caused by a fungal, bacterial or viral infection. However, a lump in the ear without any pain should be examined by the nearest doctor immediately. The doctor will carry out further examination of the complaints you are experiencing.
