    I've noticed I have a bump in the back of my ear you can't see it but I can feel it. I was wondering if this was an early sign of cauliflower?

    On my first ever night of jits I had a huge lump on my earlobe and freaked out.
    I was like "WHAT THE FUCK!"
    Turned out to be a pimple.

    your ears will get very tender and any pressure will usually hurt like hell.

    It will feel like your ear is pregnant… It will feel tender, swollen and moody, then after a few months you will have your own bundle of joy on the side of your head. Congratulations it is a boy!!

    Could be. Strange place for it.

    I've gotten cauli a few times and it's never really hurt that much, nor did it get purple. Just swelled up and after a few days started getting hard. After a week or so it feels solid.
