This is also called tympanic membrane perforation. We see many patients who have ruptured their eardrums due to introducing some foreign object inside their ears, or due to injury, infection, or sudden change in air pressure. You could have a perforated eardrum if you experience the following symptoms:
- Frequent ear ache
- Pus or blood filled mucus like liquid discharge from your ear
- Tinnitus or ringing sensation in your ear
- Hearing loss
- Nausea or vomiting
Cholesteatoma ( Only in cases of Limited cholesteatomas)
Are you experiencing the following?
- Continuous foul smelling watery discharge from your ear
- Hearing loss
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Ear ache
- Pressure or feeling of full in your ear
- Numbness or muscle weakness on one side of your face

If so, you may have a cholesteatoma – a benign growth in your middle ear, comprising skin and dead skin cells.
Congenital or acquired ossicular chain fixation or discontinuity
If you notice that your hearing has reduced of late, you may have acquired ossicular chain fixation or discontinuity; if your hearing has been poor since birth, you may have had this condition from birth. There are small bones in your middle ear called ossicles, called malleus, incus and stapes. Some people are born with one or more of these bones that are fixed, missing or formed improperly – for some people, this could happen due to infection, tumors, injury, trauma, and so on. As these bones are important for transmitting vibrations from the eardrum to the inner ear, problems with them could cause hearing loss.
The reason for your hearing loss could be this inherited disease where one of your ossicles, or middle ear bones, called the stapes becomes fixed, and hence incapable vibrating to transmit sounds to your inner ear.
If you have conductive hearing loss, you may have scar tissue, new bone tissue, or calcium deposits forming in your middle ear. Chronic ear infections is the main reason this happens. In some patients, it only affects the eardrum; in that case, it is known as myringosclerosis.
