I've had a cyst just inside my ear for a couple years now. My primary doctor said it did not need to be removed so I did nothing. The past couple days I've been having a lot of pain in my ear. My cyst had grown. Went to my doctor and he gave me a 5 day antibiotic suspecting tmj. Now my cyst has popped. The majority of the pain has subsided. Do I need to go back to the doctor? I have two days of the medicine left?
