Hi there,
I have been experiencing severe pain in my left ear for the past few days. Also, I find difficulty in hearing.
I have consulted the GP in my locality and he said there is a cyst growing in my left ear. I was shocked, but he said there is nothing to worry as it is a noncancerous skin growth in the middle ear. He advised consulting an audiologist from a hearing clinic in Toronto to remove the cyst asap.
He said if the cyst grows very large, it can destroy the surrounding bones and damage the eardrum resulting in a permanent hearing loss. I told him that I'm experiencing a slight difficulty in hearing. He said that it is because of the growing cyst which can increase pressure in the ear and can lead to hearing loss. Has anyone here with cholesteatoma suffer from permanent hearing loss?
