Hearing loss is a sudden or gradual decrease in how well you can hear. Depending on the cause, it can be mild or severe, temporary or permanent.
Although dizziness can occur in people of any age, it is more common among older adults.
While ear infections are much more common in children, there may be an underlying cause for repeat or chronic ear infections that need to be treated.
Many people experience an occasional ringing (or roaring, hissing, buzzing, or tinkling) in their ears.
Ear tubes are often recommended when a person experiences repeated middle ear infection (acute otitis media) or have hearing loss caused by persistent middle ear fluid (otitis media with effusion).
