Dark purple spot on my left earlobe.

Hi there. When i woke up today i noticed a dark purple spot on the bottom of my left earlobe. It looks like a bruise but there is no pain included. I have been playing alot of computergames with my headset on. Could that be the cause? I have also cought a really bad cold for about 4 days ago. Other then that I have no idea what this could have come from. The ear is not swollen and it feels perfectly fine.

I'm worried that this could be cancer or something.

Patient 31 ( 19:17:43): my name is nixon, if u can letme knw thx
Doctor ( 19:17:56): See the wear of enamel with professional scaling is minimal
Doctor ( 19:19:22): If you dont have any deep stains and large amount of tartar the regular scaling after about 6 months or 1 yr would be enough for your case.
Patient 31 ( 19:23:05): my question is straightforward, so polish does wear down enamel right?
Patient 31 ( 19:23:35): is the wear equivalent to about 3 years of normal brushing?
Doctor ( 19:25:26): yes, There is enamel wear due to polishing but the wear is practically minimal as we go for professional polishing only for once or twice an year . There is no such research conducted upon such comparison.
Doctor ( 19:26:42): hence I as professional dentist would refrain to make any comments upon such comparisons. The polishing instead helps in less of further staining. excessive or repeated polishing is harmful.
Doctor ( 19:27:37): because there are scratches that form after scaling and polishing is done to smoothen those scratches
