lump in ear canal
I'm hoping someone will have some idea what this is. Over the past week I have developed a painful lump in my ear canal. It is almost like a painful pimple feeling but larger - about the size of a large pea - and pressing on it does not cause it to pop. I've been waiting to see if it will go away on its own but it's not and now I have to wait a week to get in to see my doctor. Anyone have any ideas what this might be? I'm thinking some type of cyst maybe? Anyone have suggestions on what I can do to ease the pain or encourage it to pop while I wait for my appointment?
