Yes.: Ringing in the ear (tinnitus) is common and there are many causes. Unilateral tinnitus always needs to be evaluated more carefully. Most gp's can help to find out what the cause is. Sometimes you may need to see an otolaryngologist (ENT) and sometimes people need to have an mri. Start with a good history and exam with your physician and take it from there. Good luck!
