Hello Windya Ayu,
Maybe what is meant by ear fractures is a part of the skull of the temporal area. Because the auricle consists of cartilage so it doesn't break. Temporal bone fractures have symptoms:
Bleed from the ear
Pain in the ear due to the buildup of blood behind the eardrum
Bruises on the skin behind the auricle
Decreased hearing function
The diagnosis of ear fractures is made apart from clinical symptoms also through investigations such as x-rays and CT scans. Therapy is usually limited to reduce complications that occur such as nerve disorders, hearing loss, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, vertigo. For further information, you should still consult an ENT specialist who checks your husband's condition and discuss the best management for your husband's case. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
