I squeezed what I thought was a cyst in my earlobe. Could it have been a lymphnode and ifso will I die?

No - don't squeeze: Earlobes don't have lymph nodes. There are lymph nodes all around the ear, but none in the pinna or lobe. It is never a good idea to squeeze lumps - it can lead to infection and scarring. It sounds like whatever you picked at is unlikely to lead to your death. ...Read more

Draining a cyst will get it's size down but it will eventually refill; they have to be removed entirely to be gone ...Read more
