When I was like 10, a painful lumb developed in my ear lob... and it grew quite a bit (not to bad). It hurt for a few months and the suddenly stopped hurting.
Never told anyone, but it stayed there, for six years and SLOWLY shrank....
Now I am 16 and it is growing again and it hurts once more... Any idea what it is?

More then likely a cyst. You should go to your Doctor and have them look at it.

If this were "Who wants to be a millionaire", phoning a friend would be a better option than polling the audience - provided the friend you phoned were a doctor's office to make an appointment.

Detective John Kimble: I have a headache.
Lowell: It might be a tumor.
Detective John Kimble: It's not a tumor!

Probably a sebaceaeous cyst.

Unproblematic to remove.

You'll need to have it looked at by a doctor. Hope all turns out well.
