How is the condition diagnosed?

Benign ear tumors or cysts in the ear canal or middle ear can be seen during examination. A biopsy may be needed. A biopsy is the surgical removal of a piece of tissue for analysis. Hearing tests can help find any hearing loss that is present. A special X-ray test may be needed if surgery is planned.
