What is this on my ear? Can I get it surgically removed? (Photo)

From the picture, it looks like a keloid scar which can sometimes be difficult to treat because they can reoccur. I would recommend you see a board certified plastic surgeon who can remove the keloid scar surgically and have proper follow up visits to help prevent it from coming back. Best wishes!
Thank you for posting your question. From your picture, it looks like you have a keloid scar. It can be removed through excision and reconstructed through soft tissue flap. I recommend meeting with an experienced, board certified physician for an in-person consult. Best of luck.
