Growth in my cat's ear

Recently brought my 5 yr old cat to the vet b/c we noticed a growth in her ear. She constantly has ear mite problems w/ this particular ear. The vet took a look at it & showed another vet. After they conferred, they gave us a steroid to help shrink the growth so they could possibly remove it at a later date. As we were leaving he told us to get back w/ him in a week or two b/c he did not like the color of the growth. He also said besides the growth everything looked fine. Has anyone else ever had this type of issue w/ their cat?

What is the color of the growth?  Can you describe it to me (size, texture, etc.)

Is it hot to the touch?  It is probably just a hematoma, which makes sense in light of the steroid shot and the ear mite issue.  Shouldn't be a big problem.  Your vet should have been more detailed when giving you information about it.

If the steroids don't get rid of it fully, they may need to remove it surgically.  Try not to worry.   Hematomas are very common.  When it's gone, the chonic ear mite problem should clear up too.
