Ruptured Eardrum

A hole or cut in the eardrum, the delicate tissue that isolates the middle ear and the ear canal, is called the ruptured eardrum or tympanic membrane perforation. Ear pain, mucus or blood drainage, tinnitus, hearing impairment, vertigo, nausea, and vomiting are the manifestations of the ruptured eardrum. If it does not heal within six months, it can lead to complications like loss of hearing, otitis media, and cholesteatoma.
