Lump at the side of the tragus. Cancer or ear infection?
hey i have a inner lump by my tragus it doesnt hurt but it feels really firm its feels larger than a pimple but it doesnt poke out or anything i just nnoticed it today im just scared it might be cancerous because cancer runs in my family im sure it could be an ear infection but i just want to be safe is there a possibility it could be?
Hello you might be correct it could be a infection but normally infections are very painful in ear. possibility of cancer are even less as cancer at tragus is very very less common. You should get ent examination done as without examination no one can comment what is it. in doubt do reply
