What will happen if an impacted ear with wax and a perforated ear drum gets left untreated?

No problem: A wax impaction does not harm a perforation. As an ENT I suggest that all perforations be repaired via a tympanoplasty or myringoplasty at some point. An intact ear drum is safer and less likely to become impacted. Patients who choose not to have a tympanoplasty should have an annual ear exam by their doctor. ...Read more

I have had a perforated ear drum for three years now and I have yet to visit a doctor cause of my fear of pain and ear drops. Advice? Consequences?

Go to ENT.: It might be moot at this point, but an ENT doctor can take a look to see if it's even still ruptured at this point. You can always decide from there, and the actual examination shouldn't hurt at all. ...Read more

When repairing a perforated ear drum when using graph how big is the inscion above the ear? Will some of childs hair be shaved? Ent on voca till surg

Ear drum repair: Some repairs can be done in the canal. Others require a behind the ear incision. The behind the ear incisions heal really well. Very little of the hair will be shaved if need be. The graft will be taken from the tissue behind the ear. It will heal nicely. Good luck. ...Read more

Would lymphoma in a 4 yo present with only one swollen lymph node under jaw? He also has a perforated ear drum on the same side. Could that cause it?

Would lymphoma in a 4 yo present with only one swollen lymph node under jaw? He also has a perforated ear drum on the same side. Could that cause it?

Nope: I would not expect the individual node to be likely for lymphoma in your child at this age. You are astute in suspecting it is related 2 the tm perforation. This is not the exact location the tm perf would cause a node, however, the illness that precipitated the perf in the first place could definitely lead to "reactive adenopathy" in that region. (lymph nodes that react to fight infections) ...Read more

My 4 yo has a perforated ear drum that is being repaired in a few days. He also has a swollen lymph node under his jaw on same side. Related? Leukemia?

Lymphadenopathy: It would not be unreasonable for this boy to have swollen lymph nodes on the side of an injury, abrasion, or other inflammation. I see no reason to suspect leukemia, so don't concern yourself with that. Just indicate the finding to the ENT surgeon as you check in for his tympanoplasty. ...Read more

Do I have a perforated ear drum? I have had chronic earaches since I was a kid. Lately I have noticed that I cannot hear well out of my left ear, and I do hear the ocean sound. I put some ear drops in (left over from my last doctor visit), but it hasn't

High: High pressures generated from a valsalva maneuver that you performed could generate the type of sound that you described if you had a perforation. Also, if you tasted your eardrops that could be an indirect sign of perforation as a pathway from your ear canal, through a perforation, down the eustacian tube, and into the back of your throat. If you haven't seen an ent, it may be wise to have this checked, get a hearing test, and discuss options for possible corrective surgery if you have a perforation, or other appropriate tympanomastoid surgery depending on the severity of the problem. ...Read more

I have inner & middle hearing loss, a perforated ear drum (burning pain in my ear 6/12) Consultant sending me for CT what will this diagnose?

Mastoid infection: If you have chronic otitis media with a perforation of the tympanic membrane (ear drum) with otorrhea (drainage), you otologist wants to identify the presence and location of disease (infection) in the mastoid bone (the bone directly behind the ear. This bone has air cells that may be infected and need to be removed for cure. Hearing improvement is NOT the goal of surgery. Safety and dryness. ...Read more

Do I have a perforated eardrum? Do you suddenly lose your hearing in that ear if perforated?

Do I have a perforated eardrum? Do you suddenly lose your hearing in that ear if perforated?

2 questions: If you can blow smoke out of your ears (like a carnival act) you have a hole in your ear. To verify it a simple exam will see it. The hole itself can drop your hearing sensitivity a small degree depending on the size of the hole. We actually put tubes (with holes) in toddler ears all the time to improve their hearing. ...Read more

M having 40% perforated ear drum m on medications right now does my ear heal by its own in one month through medicines aur surgery needed?

Depends: That is a fairly large perforation. It may heal on its own within 4 to 6 weeks. However, it is quite possible that it will not fully heal. At that point, you need to consider surgical repair. It's not mandatory, if you don't plan on swimming or getting the ear wet. However, most people would opt to have it repaired. ...Read more

Had perforated eardrum a month and a half ago, eardrum has healed but my hearing is muffled and have fullness in the ear. When it will be normal again?

See ENT: If the eardrum has been scarred, your hearing will likely decrease since scarred tissue often reduces the eardrum mobility. I would suggest that you consult an ENT to see what can be done. ...Read more

Can one have equilibrium issues (balance, lightheaded)from a perforated eardrum? Ear feels constantly blocked. Not candidate for surgery to repair it.

Can one have equilibrium issues (balance, lightheaded)from a perforated eardrum? Ear feels constantly blocked. Not candidate for surgery to repair it.

Yes: More importantly, one has increased risk for severe inner ear infection affecting the balance apparatus within the ear. Fluid build up within an ear (infectious or not) can cause some disequilibrium, but this pressure would be released if the drum is open; thus infection may be more likely. Continue to keep your physician informed of any symptoms. ...Read more

Diagnosed with ear inflammation and tiny hole in my eardrum. Doc gave me moxyvit and desoren. I read in cases of perforated ear drum desoren isn't good?

Ear Drops: I have no personal experience with these medications. Anytime you believe a medication may cause harm, was prescribed in error or are not sure about the medication or what it is treating you should talk with the doctor who prescribed it. Doctors are diligent and always have the patients best interest in mind but during a busy day it is possible to fail to consider contraindications to the med. ...Read more
