Several: Tinnitus can be temporary, like from an ear infection, or permanent as from noise exposure, or Meniere's disease, tumors, and many other things. There is even a study which shows that environmental air pollution (including that in the home from fragrances, heating and cooking oil, deodorizers, etc.) can cause tinnitus.
