A:

Ear lumps caused by infection, inflammation or trauma are usually temporary and subside as the underlying condition resolves. Ear lumps that persist or continue to grow over time may signal more serious conditions, such as tumors. If you have any ear lump that is persistent or causes you concern, seek prompt medical care.
