Word! Tragus

Word! Tragus


(En español: Trago)

Say: tray-gus

That little bump on the outside of your ear canal is called the tragus. It's made of cartilage, and the funny thing is, it doesn't really do anything! But it does make it easy to tell if you have swimmer's ear because if you do, your ear will hurt when you touch your tragus.
