You notice that when you put an earring in your ear that there is a strange small bump behind it. You don’t remember feeling it before, and you would understandably be worried about this. And at the same time, you would be relieved that the bump is behind your ear and not in front where others can easily see it. That is because it would make you self-conscious for understandable reasons.
However, more than worrying about the appearance of the bump, you would be concerned that it is something to worry about. There is a much greater chance that there is nothing to worry about with the bump than there would be. However, you still want to have it checked as in some cases treatment may be necessary depending on the cause.
What does the strange bump behind your ear mean? There are several causes for it.
