Cancer of the ear cartilage?
Is this cancer possible, and if so, is it common? Basically, I am 19, have been to the doctors a few times complaining about inside my ear, my doctor looks, then says "there's nothing wrong with it", but I'm fairly certain that I have cancer in there, and here is why.

* Only in my RIGHT ear, when I move my jaw/ear around I'll hear a popping sound.
* Only in my RIGHT ear it feels like there is something inside of it. It isn't fullness feeling, but rather like there is something stuck between the two walls of my ear. Of course when I put my finger in there, there is nothing.
* I periodically will have pain in the back of my right jaw which will radiate up inside to my ear, this pain comes and goes, and has been going on for months. I will have pain for a week, then it'll go for a few weeks until it comes back.
* All the inside(s) of my right ear just "feel funny", unlike my left ear.... My doctor says there is "nothing wrong with it" though...
* When I shift my jaw, I will sometimes feel as if there is bone grinding on bone inside my right ear...

How likely is this to be cancer? Doctor says she has "never heard of anyone getting cancer inside the ear cartilage".....

Susie Q
Here is some information for you.
I do feel that the doctor would not tell you there is nothing wrong if there was.
If you are still concerned ask to see an ENT.
If the ENT specialist says no cancer is present then you dont have cancer.

You don't even know if ear cancer exists how can you say you think you've got it? You can't. If your doctor says she's never heard of it before then just listen to her. You seem a hypochondriac.

I doubt very much it's ear cancer, & as your doctor seems to think there is nothing wrong why don't you go to another doctor & get a second opinion & a 3rd if you want to.

There's nothing stopping you & absolutely nothing wrong with getting other opinions after all it's your body & you need peace of mind. Good luck :-)

Very very very unlikely to be ear cancer...
"Cancer of the ear is a rare cancer. Most of these cancers start in the skin of the outer ear. About 5 out of 100 skin cancers develop on the ear. Those that develop inside the ear are very rare. Less than 1 in every million people in the UK will develop cancer in the middle ear each year."

It sounds more like TMJ, tempero mandibular joint.
Locate the TMJ by putting a finger on the triangular structure in front of the ear. The finger is moved just slightly forward and pressed firmly while opening the jaw. The motion felt is from the TMJ. We can also feel the joint motion if we put a little finger against the inside front part of the ear canal. These maneuvers can cause considerable discomfort to a person who is experiencing TMJ difficulty, and doctors use them for making the diagnosis.

TMJ syndrome may cause ear pain, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and hearing loss. Sometimes people mistake TMJ pain for an ear problem, such as an ear infection, when the ear is not the problem at all.
