Hi there- I'm a bit nervous. I was getting really dizzy on Friday and getting headaches. I then realized yesterday that there is a big white lump in my ear. Like on the wall to the entrance of the ear. If I touch it- it hurts and it sends pain up into my head. I'm a little scared- because it's getting bigger I think. Anyone ever had this? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

  • It seems like a boil. I had that too. As a matter of fact I just got rid of it couple hours ago. This may be nasty to read but...earlier I was messing with it trying to pop it and it made a huge sound "booooop" then pus came out...so I looked at it in the mirror and there still was some more so I did it again and it went "booooop". And what came out was mostly blood, lots of it and there was also a large blood clot in it too. Disgusting. Anyway, I'm sure glad I got it out. But some say it can be from not cleaning your ears or the radiation of talking on cell phones.

  • ok, this will sound scary, but you should go to a doctor, anytime you find a lump or bump and it is increasing in size, it might be a cancerous cyst. If you catch it early, it won't be a big problem. It might be nothing, but why take the chance.

  • My 3 year old son had it too. I have had abscess in other areas and my experience is that it gets worse the more you touch it. Definitely go to an ENT specialist. He will likely give you antibiotics and you should be fine in a few days if my son's experience is anything to go by.
