REASONS FOR PROMINENT EARS
Prominent ear affects more than 5% of the population. A variety of formal disorders can be the reason for the prominent ears.
First of all, If the outer ear’s cartilage is much more than the usual size, the ear is more likely to be prominent.
Secondly, when the cartilage is underdeveloped, the cartilage ridge at the top of the ear does not fold accurately. The ear’s outer edge sticks outward and, this is one of the prominent ear reasons. Also, prominent ears may be the result of an injury.
