Lump in Earlobe (graphic picture)

This big lump came up about a year and half ago. It is pretty hard and hurts when I squeeze it. I poked the busted one with a sterilized needle but nothing happened, then it was bugging me so bad so I just held my breath and squeezed as hard as I could and it busted .. I was filled with puss and blood and skin. ick. but now it is coming back! It seems to come back when I mess with it alot. There was a tiny little bubble-feeling lump in there both times and I attempted to sqeeze it to pop it and it started sweeling up to what it is now. Does anyone know what this is and a better way to treat it than just popping when it gets very large? It is in the same place on the same ear.

Re: Lump in Earlobe (graphic picture)

I really don't think you should be popping it. If blood and pus came out from it then it could be a cyst. Before you get it infected, if it isn't already, I'd have a Dr. look at it preferably a Dermotologist.

Good luck..JJ..

Re: Lump in Earlobe (graphic picture)

Thanks for your reply.
Well, it completely went away after I popped the first one (except for the tiny bubble I could still feel that didnít hurt and could not be seen at all). It has been gone since I popped it a yr and half ago and just came up last week again. I do not have health insurance (donít judge.. I canít afford it) so I do not want to see a dr unless it is absolutely necessary. I was just trying to find someone else who has dealt with this and find out what they did to resolve it. I have seen tons of posts over this type of thing but none with pictures so I am unsure if they are experiencing the same thing as me.

Re: Lump in Earlobe (graphic picture)

No judging on the insurance, many folks are in that in same boat. I am very prone to cysts and get them anywhere you can think of just about. Some I can break on my own but some I needed to have done by a DR. Please try and find a clinic or something to go to as they can become infected..one of mine did.

Best of wishes...JJ..

Having a similar issue, but cannot see the pics. Just joined, so maybe I will get it figured out shortly.

Weird stuff. I think something similar happened to my ear as well. I've been googling info and found this site.
