If you're able to express and drain them on your own, I would not be too concerned. If you develop a large one or it becomes infected, then sometimes surgical removal is necessary. ...Read more

Ear is painful, sore, irritating and itchy. Looks like a small bump inside my ear, just discovered the bump tonight, had symptoms for a week.

This sounds: most like an infected sebaceous cyst; you can call it a pimple if you want. It is actually pretty common and results from dead skin cells and oils getting infected.

The causes may be irritant or allergic (something touched the area), or may be from blocked pores, blocked glands, irritated follicles, etc... A doctor can look at the bumps to help get a diagnosis. ...Read more
