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?
