Neoplasms of the External Ear
The external ear is a specialised appendage of the skin, so that its neoplasms are most frequently those derived from skin. Bony neoplasms also occur, as would be expected from the presence of bone nearby, but the cartilage of the ear seems to have no neoplastic propensity. The following account will deal only with those tumours that have a predilection for that region and those that pose special diagnostic histological and clinical problems.
