Right, where do i begin. Not that long ago i got this strange lump in my right earlobe. Looking around at other websites, it seems like a cyst of some kind. There's a hard bump, next to this kind of empty space where pus seems to build up. I've managed to get the pus out several times, but it seems to come back. Admittedly i'm making it worse by prodding it etc, but when things calmed down i left it and it pretty much stopped producing pus. (The pus makes it seem bigger than it actually is). It's not painful unless i'm fiddling with it too much, and on calling my local health centre they didn't seem too concerned. I'm just interested about it really. Maybe it'd help if i gave a short story. The other day after draining the pus through a hole that's seemingly there on my earlobe (No need for pins, just a hole) - i put a plaster on it so i didn't tamper with it. Nothing grew. After a few days without the plaster and fiddling with it, pus returned. Anybody have any idea what this exactely is and if i should have anything checked out?
