Ear infection vs. fluid in the ear, which one is it?

Do I Need an ENT Specialist in WNY for Tinnitus?

Do you hear a constant buzzing in your ears? You may be suffering from tinnitus, which is characterized by a perpetual chirping or ringing in the ears even when no noise is present. Tinnitus is technically a symptom and not a condition, and so there is no cure for it. However, an ENT specialist in WNY may be able to treat the underlying cause, which may, in fact, be an ear infection, hardening of bones in the middle ear, hearing loss, or other related condition.

When to Go to an ENT Clinic in Amherst

How do you know when to see a specialist and when to cuddle up on the couch with some chicken soup?

The Throbbing Truth About Earaches

The most common type of earache is otitis media which involves inflammation and infection of the middle ear. The narrow channel that connects the inside of the ear to the back of the throat is called a eustachian tube. When there is an accumulation of mucus and pus behind the eardrum, the eustachian tube becomes blocked. As a sudden infection occurs, it is called acute otitis media.
If earaches go untreated or improperly treated, fluid can linger within the ear for weeks. This condition is known as otitis media with effusion, and often occurs in ear infections that are in the recovery process. There are serious consequences to having chronic earaches, the worst of which is potential hearing loss.

You Don’t Have to Suffer with Nasal Polyps!

What are nasal polyps? | When chronic inflammation frequently recurs in the nasal cavity, growths can develop on the mucus lining of one’s sinuses. These soft, pale, teardrop or grape-shaped growths are called Nasal Polyposis or Nasal Polyps. While the polyps are painless and range from mild and unnoticed to obstructively large in size, they can block the nasal passageways and cause problems with breathing.
People prone to this condition are those who cope with environmental allergies, frequent sinus infections, asthma, extreme sensitivity to aspirin, and certain immune disorders. Nasal polyps can occur at any age, however they are more common after age 40 and more prevalent in men than women. Children who have cystic fibrosis also tend to experience polyps in their nose.
Nasal polyps can occur in both nostrils or sinuses, and may gradually grow larger.

Nosebleeds ~ the drippy (but not so dreadful) reality

Epistaxis, a condition commonly referred to as nosebleeds, occurs at the vascular area within the nose, which can bleed profusely as a result of facial trauma. The nose’s arterioles (tiny blood vessels) are vulnerably positioned and thus can easily rupture.

Approximately 60 percent of people experience epistaxis at some point in their life. Only 6 percent of those who suffer with nosebleeds tend to seek medical treatment, and even fewer require hospitalization.

Though epistaxis can occur at any age, it mostly has a bimodal distribution, afflicting toddlers to children age 10, as well as adults over 50. There are two types of nosebleeds – those that stem from the front of the nose (anterior) which are most common, and those that stem from the back of the nose (posterior) which are less common and more severe in nature.
