Removal of objects from the ear canal

It can be quite surprising what you find. Foreign bodies in the ear canal are not the same as ear wax, although they both cause blockage and sometimes pain. Recently we treated a patient who had been to A+E twice, they couldn’t understand why she was in so much pain – although the ear drum did look a bit abnormal. In fact when I examined the patient under the microscope, what the doctors in A+E were looking at was in fact a jammed in ear plug, not the ear drum at all. So I removed it, with instant relief of pain, and improvement in hearing.
