Face has had a little lump/bump on his ear for around 3 weeks.

He was at the vet 2 weeks ago and while there, I pointed it out to her.
She wasn't sure what it was and said to "watch it".
She thought it might have been a bug bite?
He does lay in the yard a little bit each day.
He doesn't seem to be really bothered with it, but he is a little sensitive when I touch it.
He is not scratching at it.
One day last week he was shaking his head for around a half an hour, but that was it.
It's a little less than 1/4" and the hair is missing and I can feel it as a bump.
It doesn't look inflamed. It isn't oozing.
Any ideas?

Carl had several like that on both ears, on his snout and hock. Sometimes they would get crusty, they weren't particularly hard. My vet put him on 2 Thuja pellets (you can buy them in a health food store) every other day and they went away. I also switched him to raw as I suspected it may have something to do with kibble. It has never come back.

I looked REAL close with a flashlight, and felt it.....maybe there is some fluid in there?

I think it will be back to the vet to get it checked out.

Good idea-I would have that aspirated. Hopefully, it's just a benign innocent bump/bug bite but, the only way to know is to have it aspirated. It could potentially be a mast cell tumor--those are easy to diagnose via an aspirate.
