Benign Ear Growth

Alternate Names : Benign Ear Cyst

Benign Ear Growth | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

A benign ear growth may cause no symptoms at all. The most common symptom is a gradual decline in hearing, or hearing impairment. A person may also have drainage of infected material from the ear occasionally.

Pressure on a nerve supplying the face may result in a loss of the sense of taste. If the growth presses on the inner ear, the person may have a loss of balance, as well as vertigo. Vertigo gives a person the feeling that the room is spinning around. This feeling is worsened when the person turns or moves suddenly.
