    So, my ear has been a bit sore lately after practice. It looks "slightly" more swollen than the other ear, so I was thinking it's probably cauliflower. The thing is, I don't really feel any fluid anywhere, and it hasn't "blown up" like in traditional cauliflower.

    So I read up and bought some 30 gauge insulin syringes, etc.

    I tried to insert the needle into the the point that looks swollen, but I couldn't get any fluid out at all. I tried it several more times and same thing...

    So is it possible to have a bit of discomfort (e.g., touch or sleeping) but not have any liquid buildup?

    no fluid no use for a needle, your ear is just irritated

    hilarious! dude, if it isn't exploding outwards (trust me, you will know when it happens) don't drain it.

    dude, you don't even have to skip class unless it swells up.
