HELLO THERE! 26 years old here.
Last week while adjusting my hair I noticed my left mastoid process bone is a lot larger and more pointy and my right one is smooth. Is this normal? Anyone else have this problem?
Since then; I can’t stop touching it and comparing both and everyone I see, I look at their ears and nobody else seems to have this problem.
Health anxiety is already awful. Now imagine having this problem. I’m a wreck. Anyone else relate?? Have a doctors appointment 4 weeks from now; which I am dreading. I feel like I’m feeding my HA like this. Anyone else have different size mastoid bones? Trying to stay calm until my apt date and if other people relate and it’s “normal” i’ll be able to ease my nerves.

I'd not worry so much the ears can be misshapen for various reasons for nothing dangerous or life threatening.
Both my ears are messed up from jujitsu I have cauliflower ear.

i would not worrying about it as life is tooo short to be worrying. you deserve to be happy you don't deserve to be sad. if you are self conscious about it don't worry if people look at it they are just curious and unfortunately you cant change how people actions

they're probably not as different as you think they are. Once you start obsessing about something, things can be all out of proportion.
If they are different, its probably been that way all of your life, you just never noticed. Are you in pain? if not, try to forget about it - ha

worrying about things will jus make it worse. the only person that probaby notices them is you. we all have insecurities but they make them who we are
