Ear piercing ?

I went to Claire’s and pierced my cartilage and that was a year ago. Ever since I pierced it I now have a bump on the back and now it’s starting to hurt and grow. What do I do and will it go away? Also it’s not infected because I clean it everyday.

    The bump is most likely cartilage deformation or a keloid. 

    These are things that will only go away with surgery. 

    This is very common with cartilage piercings done with a gun.  I recommend removing the jewelry and letting the piercing close up.  Talk with a plastic surgeon about repairing your cartilage.
