Lipomas, the most common benign tumors, rarely originate from the external ear. The first case of a lipoma originating from the concha of the auricle was reported and described in the current study. It was successfully removed under local anesthesia. This directs the attention of surgeons toward lipomas as a cause of conchal mass because the early diagnosis of a lipoma when it is still small allows its easy, safe, and complete removal.
