I have a bump on the back of my ear lobe. It is growing at a slow but constant rate. I do not know the medical term for it but the street name for it is a "tittie". I would like to know what can be done about this problem because I have seen these bumps get very huge on the back of some peoples ears. Can they be removed before they get too big?

They usually can be removed and are just skin tags or extra skin growths.

i agree with the above post, its probably something easy to get rid of, could be a little pocket of infection that occured off an earring or something or a skin tag, something a dr can easily remove at the drs surgery usually with only a local anesthetic.
