A member asked:

Hi doctors! i had what i believe you said was tinnitus--sound of childs squeeze toy inside my right ear. the noise has subsided. i had an mri of the skull base and brain--would that mri show an acoustic neuroma if i had one? what else causes tinnitus?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

MRI appears OK: Glad your imaging was reassurring, and does indeed exclude an acoustic neuroma. Most common cause of tinnitus is aging associated with loss of hearing.
