Need more info: Ear swelling is not really something that is familial. Can you post more information? Was there truama? Is the ear misshapen other than being swollen? What part of the ear is swollen?

Easy fix: Head to an ENT soon and you can likely have it removed in the office under local anesthesia. Don't leave it in there.
