Causes of hearing loss in adults

There can be number of causes for hearing loss, some of them are: 

 

  1. Damage to the inner ear, aging and exposure to loud noise may cause wear and tear on the hairs or nerve cells in the cochlea.

    2. Higher pitched tones may become muffled to you. It may become difficult for you to pick             out words against background noise.

    3. Gradual buildup of earwax. Earwax can block the ear canal and prevent conduction of                     sound  waves. Earwax removal can help restore your hearing.

   4. Ear infection and abnormal bone growths or tumors. In the outer or middle ear, any of                    these can cause hearing loss.

    5. Ruptured eardrum (tympanic membrane perforation). Loud blasts of noise, sudden                         changes in pressure, poking your eardrum with an object and infection can cause your                   eardrum to rupture and affect your hearing.
