Surfer Ear Surgery and Congenital Atresia Ear

If you experience any ear, nose and throat (ENT) issues, it is best to see professionals that are also top researchers in their field of medicine and surgery. You want a group of physicians who can diagnose and treat a full range of issues, including congenital artresia in the ear. This condition is characterized by non-development or maldevelopment of the ear canal, and it can develop alongside other abnormalities. This condition can often contribute to hearing problems. 

Another ear problem commonly seen is surfer’s ear. This is a condition characterized by multiple bony growths on the bone of the ear canal. Due to potential blockage, this is often corrected by surfer ear surgery.

Skull Base Tumor and Petrous Apex

Ear, nose and throat (ENT) professionals deal with a variety of potential issues. One such issue is skull base tumor, which typically forms in groups along areas under the brain or in the bottom area of the skull. Most tumors are benign but can still cause issues due to close proximity to the brain and nerves. These tumors can include glomus tumors, schwannomas, chondrosarcomas, and other head and neck cancers that spread to the skull’s base.

Another potential issue is petrous apex tumors or lesions. This area of the skull is difficult to reach, making skilled care necessary. You should contact an ENT doctor if you experience any symptoms or noticeable changes in your ear, nose, throat, or head area.
