Hi,
I have this huge lump in my left ear canal and its been growing steadily. It started a week ago with some pain and discomfort and a small bump. Then it started to grow bigger and severe pain if I touched it of pulled on my ear lobe. I went to the doctor on Monday and she gave me this drop to minimize the inflation but it not really helping. I got referred to an ENT doctor and my appointment is on Monday, nex week. But now I am really concerned because its not stopping to grow. There is a lot of fluid inside and it's really soft. Its almost blocking my ear canal and soon will be touching my ear drums and extrude out from my year canal. Should I wait to see the ENT on Monday or go to emergency. Also, recently I am getting a lot of ringing noise in my left ear. Do I have cancer?

Thanks for your replies
