Ear disease describes an underlying medical condition that interferes with the health or function of your inner, middle, or outer ear, or your ability to hear well. Certain ear diseases can also affect your coordination and balance.
Some of the common types of ear disease the Broward Specialty Group ENT team treats include:
Meniere’s disease is an inner ear disorder that may relate to a build-up of fluid in your ear. Common symptoms of this condition include pain, pressure, dizziness, and roaring sounds in your ear.
If you have any changes in your hearing or develop pain or other unexplained symptoms that affect your ears or balance, don’t delay a diagnostic evaluation with the team at Broward Specialty Group.
The Broward Specialty Group offices are fully equipped with the latest diagnostic testing technologies to confirm or rule out ear diseases.
During your initial evaluation, your provider takes time to review your symptoms and medical history. They physically examine the inner part of your ear and eardrum to identify excess earwax, fluid build-up, infections, or physical damage that contribute to your symptoms.
The staff also provides in-office hearing tests to evaluate how well you can hear words, tones, and different sounds.
If you have a bacterial ear infection or swimmer’s ear, your Broward Specialty Group provider can prescribe a course of antibiotics to clear it. Depending on your needs, you may need oral pills or medicated drops. In some cases, chronic ear infections may require the surgical placement of tubes to help fluids drain more efficiently.
Treating tinnitus and Meniere’s disease may involve in-office procedures to remove excess earwax and drain fluids. While there’s no cure for these ear diseases or disorders, the providers can help you make dietary and lifestyle changes to protect your ear health and reduce your risk factors for long-term complications, such as permanent hearing loss.
