Pictures would help. A bump can be taken out or injected with steroids to decrease the bump. This is something that I would get a consultation for to get a better answer.

Thank you for the question.

If you are referring to a scar,  steroid injection may be helpful.  Scar revision may also be considered. In person  examination  will be in your best interest.

Its hard to know exactly what you mean by a torn tissue bump on the ear.  If you have developed a hypertrophic scar from the procedure this can potentially be reduced with kenalog injections or laser excision  of the bump. In my practice I use a co2 laser with a cutting hand piece to treat suble bumps or irregularities on the ear. The laser can remove areas as small as 1 mm in diameter.
