It's likely just scar tissue - nothing serious. If you're concerned or have any pain, see a doctor immediately. Note: Try not to play with it too much. This is a common way to get bumps, lumps, or any other type of uncomfortable things around the hole. If it is a new piercing (like you mentioned), playing with it will only further these lumps.

-- Okay, I got a cartilage piercing about a month ago and everything was fine until about two weeks ago. It started to hurt really bad and it was sore constantly, but i thought it was just the healing process. Well, when i looked closer, it turns out i had a lump behind it. It was all red and gross, so i decided to pop it. It helped for a while, but the lump came back, so i went to see the person who pierced my ear. He told me that i had a small keloid. He told me that i should clean it out with salt water everyday or use neosporin on it every three days.

either way, he told me it would take about a month to clear up.

It was caused by bacteria that had gotten under the skin around my piercing, and it could very likely happen to a lip piercing too.

it'll go away if you clean and take care of it regularly.

Small lump on toddlers ear lobe?

Assuming you mean a lump from a piercing gone wrong... (since you posted in the piercing category). It sounds like you got it done using a piercing gun, which is horribly unsafe I'd read up on why piercing guns are bad, and then talk to a real piercer and/or doctor about taking care of the infection before it becomes a permanent scare (like a keloid lump).

Is it normal to have a lump around the outside and inside of your nose piercing?

It sounds like you have an infection. Soak a chamomile tea bag in hot water and then place it on the lump for 10 to 15 mintues. Do this for about 2-4 days and the lump should go straight away. If this does not work, contact a body piecer for advice.
