He's a boxer and keeps shaking his head like his ear is

Customer Question

He's a boxer and keeps shaking his head like his ear is hurting. I looked in his ear and between the folds of his ear is a hard, round and red looking place. Could it be a tumor or what
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the boxer's name and age?
Customer: Blazer and he's 5
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Blazer?
Customer: Has allergies but can't find the right food. We have tried everything

To make sure I got this right, you are seeing a lump in the ear, correct?

More of a bump than a lump
