Today, in Mcdonalds, I noticed that there was a small round lump in my ear lobe, the dangling thing, and I'm worried that it is a tumor. It hurts when I touch it. I read that it could be from an ear infection or a head injury, and I may have an ear infection but it may only be inflammation. I have had no pain in my ear and this lump appeared very suddebly. I have been on a road trip for the past week and that lump was not present the day before today. I am going to check it in a few days and see if it has grown bigger/smaller and if it had gone away. I wanted to see if anyone knew what was happening before I see a doctor. Thank you.
