I have had an extra piece of cartilage (I assume) on my ear since I was born. What is this ear deformity? (photo)

These can usually be treated under local anesthesia with removal of the cyst and the draining sinus (hole). I recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.
It can be removed surgically. See a Board certified plastic Surgeon for accurate diagnosis and treatment options.
