A typical malignant ear tumor is squamous cell carcinoma, affecting the middle ear and mastoid. It originates from ear epidermis cells, the external auditory conduit or middle ear and mastoid (auditory conduit).
Diagnosis: This disease is often found in an ear in an otologic context, especially middle ear infection.
There are also other malignant tumors that originate in the external auditory duct and in the middle ear, include cranial adenoid carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma and ceruminoma.
Glomerular ear tumors are benign tumors that originate from blood pressure control corpuscles distributed along some middle ear nerves and that are located at the base of the skull.
It's a small tumor in the tympanic cavity. Depending on its size, it is removed by lifting the tympanic membrane and thus accessing the tympanic cavity.
This benign tumor involves the tympanic cavity extending from the back bone to the mastoid. Removal may require two separate interventions.
