Ear cyst

a sebaceous cyst that occurs most commonly in the ear Canal. They are bulging sac-like collections of dead skin cells and fluid. These cysts can be quite painful and may block the canal causing hearing loss. Treatment may include warm wet compresses, antibiotics (if infected) and surgical removal in some cases. Most resolve spontaneously.
