My outer ear, specifically the area around the cartilage right

My outer ear, specifically the area around the cartilage right next to my face/cheek, is swollen and painful. It has been getting worse for about 2 days, and now the pain is spreading to my jaw and neck. I haven't taken anything yet. Would you recommend an anti-inflammatory?

Hi, I ve been experiencing red, itchy, slightly bumpy ears for the past two days. It s not on the inside on the ear canal, but it s on the outside, on the cartilage. They re a little bumpy, almost like a rash, but not really. Just kind of rough. Any suggestions?

I have pain in outer edge of ear, I have no swelling, no redness, no head cold, and I did not sleep on it. What can I do to make this feel better. It just keeps aching like someone is pressing it hard for about 5 seconds, then releasing. It s strange.

I was recently diagnosed with carcinoid tumors of the aapendix with a large mass at 4.6 and some smaller ones as well. I had a right side hemio, and lymph nodes removed as well. A right lung PE and a hysterectomy since May of 2015 now i am finding bumps under the skin (feel like a pimple but never come to a head) they are behind my ear cartliage, under may arm and between my breasts. What could this be or what should i research to talk to my doctor?
