Yes, there is ear cancer, both middle / inner ear and outer ear. See Cancer of the ear. Most of these are types of skin cancer.

The most common type of cancer of the ear is squamous cell carcinomas. Other types of cancer affecting the outer ear include:

  • basal cell cancer
  • melanoma

P.S. There are also heart cancers.
