Ear Wax is your Friend
by Murray Grossan, MD
Ear Wax is your Friend The healthy person makes cerumen, which protects the ear canal. There is no need to remove cerumen unless it is blocking your hearing.

Tinnitus: The Noise From Inside the Head
by Ho-Sheng Lin, MD
Tinnitus: The Noise From Inside the Head Repeated exposure to loud noises such as from iPods, radios, televisions, hair dryer, concerts, and sporting events will have a cumulative damaging effect on the hearing nerve.

Tinnitus is the medical term for the perception of noise in the ears or head in the absence of external sound. The word originates from Latin and means “to tinkle or to ring like a bell.” It can be objective (the sound can also be heard by a clinician) or subjective (heard only by the patient). In most cases, tinnitus is subjective. Patients with tinnitus often refer to the noise as “ringing in the ears.”
