Lump In The Right Ear Lobule?
I want to ask. I just realized there was a lump in my right ear lobule. When pressed it hurts but not too much. From the outside it looks red on the skin. What’s this lump? Is it dangerous? Please explain in detail
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lumps in the ear lobules are most commonly caused by benign cysts. These cysts are caused by a buildup of dead cells that have a pimple-like appearance on the skin, are small in size, and can be reddish or skin-colored. This condition is almost certainly benign and will not cause health problems other than the problem of disrupted appearance. In addition to the ear lobules, cysts can be found in the ear canal or the back of the ear.
Handling in such conditions depends on the severity. If it does not cause any complaints then it may not require special handling. However, if it is felt to be sufficiently disruptive to appear, cause significant pain, become infected, or increase in size, it is recommended to consult directly with the doctor. The doctor can perform a small operation under local anesthesia to remove the cyst.
That's all, hope you can help.
