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?

What is it to read the information into knowledge so too. I like it a lot because I'm not that good.

I have had pulsative tinnitus and major hearing loss for 1.5 years now. I was told it was allergies until a new doctor decided to look in to it further.
I started having pain & was told it was an ear infection about a month ago. 2 rounds of antibiotics & pretnasone with no improvement, Hearing test, MRI, & many doctor visits later, I finally saw an ENT yesterday. He cut a hole and drained a small amount of fluid, but not much. Then he saw what he is sure to be c-toma.
I have CT scan scheduled for Saturday & an appointment with a surgeon next month.
I have been in pain for a month now and it seems to be getting worse daily. I am taking advil 24/7 to keep it manageable.
The ENT said my ear was not sucked in and there is no hole or discharge, so it was hard to diagnose.

I haven't seen much about pain being a symptom. Has anyone else out there had severe pain? It is so frustrating and having two small kids, my patience is already running low. It is a daily struggle. I am happy to finally start getting answers, but frustrating and scary to think it is something that will take some time and possibly many surgeries to maybe fix the problem.

I am an adult having had her first mastoidectomy and wall down procedure at 4. I have had life long care and complete hearing loss in my left ear. My father had the same exact surgery and issue (just much older). As you can guess we both of congenital cholesteatomas. I now have 2 daughters, and brought up my concerns to their ENT, they seemed to have dismiss this as pretty rare.

Are there any other people out there that have congenital cholesteatomas that they passed onto their children?

Thank you!

Did your daughter have the CWD surgery?  Is she limited on activities like swimming?  My 13 year old has had 3 surgeries and it keeps coming back - she has infection that they can't clear up with antibiotics so going to infectious disease center at University of MN next month.  I am a nervous mom and this has been going on for almost 4 years now....  Also taking her to Iowa to see Dr. Gantz for second opinion and to see about his surgery which sounds like what your daughter had done. Any information about your story helpful... My daughter has 2 hearing bones gone and retracted eardrum - her eustachian tubes just suck it all back in....Her c-toma was large when discovered as well - It did not affect facial nerves, but worried it is growing more now that she has this infection in her ear....she is not in any pain and seems normal!  Thanks
