Crease in ear lobe?

I have heard that a diagonal crease in one or both ear lobes indicates risk for a heart attack. How many of you here that have had heart attacks have these creases? What do they actually look like? Anyone have a picture of this?

Search this board for that crease. There is a recent thread about it.

Re: Crease in ear lobe?

Thanks found it!

If anyone knows about a picture that would be helpful. The descriptions still dont make sense.

Re: Crease in ear lobe?

Hi FrontierDriver:
I have creases in both earlobes and have never had a heart attack. I've no idea where you'd find a picture of a "typical" crease and am not even sure if there is such a thing as "typical". However, if another description helps, here's mine: it's vertical (not diagonal) and starts at the top of the lobe and extends 3/4 of the way down. Faint, but still noticeable. I think some people just have them, but they don't really mean anything.

Re: Crease in ear lobe?

Ive been checking my family and none of them seem to have a crease.
My left ear has something a little farther up the lobe, that looks suspicious but I cant decide if it's a crease or something swollen. I guess a crease would look like a wrinkle??

yes, a wrinkle would describe it perfectly.

Re: Crease in ear lobe?

I typed in "ear lobe crease" on yahoo and pulled up a health site with a diagram of the crease. I would post it but I'm not sure if it is allowed do to certain rules.

Re: Crease in ear lobe?

I found that diagram as well. I still havent seen a real person with ear creases though. I know it cant be that uncommon
