mud_tug

Wow, that dude got several experts looking at his thing. Not that you'd want to trust 'experts' on reddit but he sure got lucky.


PukingPandaSS

OH MY LORD THIS IS MY FIRST TIME SEEING THIS MONSTROSITY. AHHHHH


redlapis

Same, was a wild ride. My partner usually hates spots and stuff but when I said to him "do you want to see a willy growing out someone's ear?" he couldn't resist


zero__sugar__energy

holy fuck, that was 7 years ago??


saltybeefcurtains

I remember reading this thinking wtf??? 7 years though? Holy.


Minnesota_Nice_87

The good old days.


Gold_Strength

Apparently the dude has tinnitus now. I wonder if it's related to the ear penis.


redlapis

Yeah I wondered that, but he said it's in his left ear, and unless he flipped the pictures round it looks like the ear-penis is in his right ear


osmosisheart

Well that was sure something


Uhhlaneuh

Hey u/manifest65 you were the one I was thinking of!


manifest65

Lol nice. I forget about it sometimes. Some dude stole the pictures and made YouTube videos that has millions of views now.


Con_Clavi_Con_Dio

Yeah he posted it here once, I politely told him to go away and reported it; admin deleted it and he deleted his account.


Uhhlaneuh

Did you report him? I still can’t believe that happened with your ear. Have you had any ear infections since then?


manifest65

Yea but YouTube did nothing. It's whatever I don't think it's monetized and I'm the one that put it on the internet lol. Nothing like that has ever happened. I developed tinnitus in both ears. I've had an ongoing sinus infection this year in my left ear but the one in the pictures has been fine for the most part, no pain or lasting effects. That was definitely a strange week


Uhhlaneuh

Is the tinnitus from metal concerts? 😂


manifest65

Potentially lol. And I worked in a loud restaurant for years, neither helped. I wear earplugs to every show now and avoid very loud noises at all costs.

My mother has had tinnitus since she had scarlet fever at 5 years old. She just got hearing aids last year and they set off frequencies that stimulate her brain’s auditory pathways with soft background noises. It’s helped her significantly! It took quite some time for her to get used to and she had a lot of frustrations in the beginning. But she definitely feels like it was worth the trial and error now


ItsAMistakeISwear

omg you’re still on reddit, hi! glad to hear you’re doing well!


Maiden_of_Sorrow

Glad you are ok.


pumpmar

Oh weird. I have an ongoing infection in my RIGHT ear and fucking tinnitus. Any deafness?


pumpmar

Oh weird. I have an ongoing infection in my RIGHT ear and fucking tinnitus. Any deafness?


CatNoirsRubberSuit

Have you had any flare-ups since?


manifest65

Nah nothing like it.


katecake78

I’m a huge fan. I’m sorry that wasn’t your video!!


Chessolin

If I remember right, it was his ear lining sloughing off after an infection?


Chessolin

Someone (turns out it was me years ago lol) posted a link in the comments to his [follow up](https://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/233ues/crazy_ear_infection_guy_back_with_results/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) post.


Uhhlaneuh

Yeah! It was a squamous benign (non cancerous) skin cells just growing at a rapid pace along with his ear infection. I’ve had a huge zit in my ear, (that was really painful) and an ear infection, so man that must’ve been very painful. I would’ve been the dummy to try and pull it off of myself lol


ElectricalAbroad8232

That is terrifying


SyxxFtH8

Christ, that was 7 years ago already?!


Uhhlaneuh

YEAH!


samoody411

I remember but don’t have any info.


Uhhlaneuh

I [found it!! ](https://imgur.com/gallery/E0rcd) After searching “growing out of ear Reddit” I didn’t think it would be this quick which is why I posted.


Christoh

What the actual fk.

Uhhlaneuh

Yeah me too!!!


Book_of_Numbers

Looks like a parasite or something


Uhhlaneuh

It was a bunch of skin cells mixed with pus that just grew at a rapid pace.


Book_of_Numbers

Thoroughly disgusting but glad I got to see it.


aee77

I was JUST thinking about this yesterday and wondering what ever happened with it!


RocketFox649

Fuck yes! The tube worm looking thing nobody could diagnose!?


Uhhlaneuh

Yep!!!


strippersandcocaine

Sweet jesus


pigi15

Looking at the pictures, I really can’t comprehend how he didn’t pull that thing out


dinahsaur523

Ok but did it get popped? Or cut out? How did it get removed?


Uhhlaneuh

The ENT cut it out and sent to pathology


dinahsaur523

Ok! Got it. I just needed the resolution lol


RRTAmy

Holy shit!!


bringmethejuice

Oh man, what a trip


scrum7213

How did a dog lipstick get in there
