Cancer Detection: Monitoring Your Ears (36,37,38)

Monitoring your body regularly can help spot cancer early and save your life

Knowing the signs & symptoms is half the battle! It is important that you monitor your body to detect any red flags for early cancer detection.

Frequency:

Monthly or daily if sign or symptoms are noticed.

Preparation:

  • Know the ear signs and symptoms for early cancer detection.
  • Know what your ears typically look and feel like
  • Fixed mirror and a second handheld mirror
  • Lit area

Examination:

  • Place ear between index finger and thumb. Slowly maneuver around the entire ear to spot any lumps.
  • Visually check the top of your ear for any skin changes.
  • Use a handheld mirror to check the back of your ear. Look for skin changes or lumps. Make sure to fold ear and earlobe as necessary to see the entire back area.

Notice Something? Here’s What To Do Next:

  • Inspecting the ear canal is difficult. Therefore, it is important that it gets checked during your annual physical exam.
  • Should you spot a sign or difference between the two ears consider it a “red flag”. It does not mean you have cancer. If it does not correct itself in one week, contact your primary care doctor for a professional evaluation.
