Dizziness: Symptoms can include hearing loss, dizziness and imbalance. So, they can be similar to meniere's disease. Usually a tumor can be ruled out with an mri.

Unclear : 3 distinct issues. Ear infections, menieres syndrome and inner ear tumor. None of these issues has anything to do with the other. Menieres is fluctuating hearing loss with tinnitus and vertigo (comes and goes). Ear infections are pus in the middle ear leading to severe pain and hearing loss. An inner ear tumor (acoustic neuroma) presents with progressive difficulty hearing. Please see an ENT doc.
