Hard to say: Buzzing in one ear can mean several things. You might have something stuck in the ear canal, especially a plug of ear wax. Or there might be nerve damage, especially from exposure to loud noise. Can you hear normally from that ear? If not, you may want to see an md to get wax removed or to rule out "sudden hearing loss, " which can lead to permanent loss of hearing.

See ENT ASAP: While there are innocuous causes of one-sided tinnitus (noise in the ear), there are other causes that benefit from early diagnosis and management. See and ear, nose & throat specialist as soon as possible.
