Hi doctor,

I have a big lump on my right ear, which is getting bigger day by day. I do not know how to deal with this. I have attached the photographs with it.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It appears to be a papilloma (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity), a benign condition.

Usually, it has a pedicle, and it can be excised even under local anesthetic. It should be sent for histopathological examination to confirm its nature.
