Hard to say: These could be lymph nodes or cysts or infected/clogged follicles or even something else. Since it's bilateral - as in on both sides - lymph nodes are more likely the culprit. To be sure you should seek an in person evaluation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Hi, I have this lump in my ear lobe, had one before but it went but this is bigger and hurts a lot, any help?
Cyst: There are small oil glands inside the ear lobe. If their drainage point is blocked the fluid will keep filling the sac and cause a lump. Sometimes over time and with massage the cyst will drain. If it's not red massage the area gently several times a day to see if that changes thing.

If it doesn't clear up in a few days, or starts looking worse, you may need antibiotics. ...Read more

Cyst or scar: If your ears are pierced, sometimes people get more aggressive scar growth that can be tender when pushed on. Many people also get small epidermal/sebaceous cysts on their earlobes.
