Unlike sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss occurs when there is an issue in the ear canal, eardrum, or middle ear and the small bones--the malleus, incus, and stapes--found inside the ear.
How does damage to the ear canal, eardrum or middle ear occur?
Sometimes individuals are born without an ear canal or an unopened ear canal at birth. When this occurs, surgical correction may be possible. However, if surgery is not an option, then there are many types of hearing aids available for use.
In other instances, an injury like a perforated eardrum impacted earwax, prolonged infections like Swimmer's Ear, allergies or fluid in the ears from colds, or even benign tumors, can cause the damage.
For causes that include perforated eardrums, earwax impaction, ear infections, and allergies-- all are temporary and generally do not need any sort of invasive treatment. However, for congenital and permanent hearing loss, hearing aids provide help to the sufferer.
