Hello Muhd Fekhrul Red'zy,
Hemangiomas are blood vessel tumors, generally developing rapidly shortly after birth and their growth will slow down as adults. Most can experience spontaneous regression but some remain. Hemangiomas are most commonly found on the skin but can also occur extraction such as in the liver, digestive tract, pancreas, and so on. This type of cavernous hemangioma can occur in adults (generally> 60 years).
Hemangiomas can also occur in the ears, although this is rarely the case. Patients with hemangiomas in the middle ear can present with complaints of blood loss from the ear, ringing in the ears, decreased hearing, and throbbing in the ear. Bleeding can occur if the patient scratches the ear or other trauma mechanism.
The diagnosis of hemangiomas in the ear can be made from physical examination using endoscopy and also supporting examinations such as CT-scan and MRI. In the case of hemangiomas in the ear, the main treatment is surgery through an approach from the mastoid or retroauricular direction (spinal ear). In addition, ear drum reconstruction can also be done if there is damage due to tumor mass. Treatment with drugs such as propanolol, corticosteroids, interferon generally requires long-term therapy and variable results. Because this tumor is formed from a blood vessel, the risk of bleeding during surgery is very large. It is best to consult with an ENT specialist to determine the right course of action for your case. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
