Abstract

ABSTRACT

Hearing loss and tinnitus are common symptoms among the general population, and both increase in frequency and severity with age. The initial evaluation determines the site of the lesion: conductive hearing loss from the middle ear, or sensorineural hearing loss from the inner ear. Unilateral hearing loss is of most concern because of the possibility of a mass lesion. Most forms of hearing loss can be helped with amplification (hearing aid), surgical correction, or cochlear implantation in the case of profound hearing loss.
