See your GP: Go to see your gp and have your ear examined. Likely it is an inflammation of lymph node behind your ear. It could be a reactive process to something in your ear or adjacent to ear. Do you have trauma, ear aches, ear drainage etc? Infection, inflammation, trauma, could cause this. If it lasts for over 4 weeks or it gets really big- definitely further work-up should be done. ...Read more

Tire-rubber or stony hard, stuck to surrounding stuff, preposterously big -- these are the warning signs. ...Read more

Lump: It may an enlarged lymph node vs a cyst. I would recommend seeing your regular physician to make sure that it is a benign lesion. Most commonly lymph node enlarges secondary to an infection but there are other causes as well. It is better that you get yourself checked out. ...Read more

If the ear is turning blue that is from decreased blood supply secondary to an infection resulting from the ear piercing. Warm soaks and antibiotics may help. ...Read more
