i have had a lump on my lobe for about 5 years and its always been as small as a match head, but over the last 6 days its swollen badly, it hurts if i squeeze it or lean against it at night tryin to sleep, i dont want to cause a fuss with the doctor unless anybody here thinks it would need treating, im a 21 year old lad and to me a pin stuck init would help, if u get what i meen. cheers for any comments i recieve, Dave
