The Cause Of Hearing Loss In Women 24 Years?
good afternoon. I am Mega, 24 years old.
Hello Mega, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Hearing loss can be caused by many things. Hearing loss can be divided into 3, conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss, and mixed hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss can be caused by:
Infection of the outer ear (otitis externa) or infection of the middle ear (otitis media) Blockage of the eustachian tube (the tube that connects the middle ear cavity to the nasopharyngeal area - the area between the nose and throat) The hole in the ear drum Cerumen prop The presence of a foreign object in the ear Tumors that block the outer ear and middle ear Otosclerosis, which is a disorder of the hearing bones in the middle ear Decreased sensorineural hearing can be caused by:
Aging Side effects of drugs that are ototoxic Certain diseases (can be genetic diseases or acquired diseases) Infection in the womb Hearing explosions or being exposed to loud sounds for a long time and continuously
Exposure to loud sounds can indeed cause hearing loss. This condition is called Noise induce hearing loss (NIHL). NIHL can occur due to exposure to sound of more than 85 decibles for a long time and continuously. A sound of 85 decibles is the equivalent of noise on the streets of a big city. Exposure to a sound of 85 decibles for more than 8 hours can cause hearing nerve damage and trigger NIHL. The fan noise will likely not cause NIHL as it will likely not reach 85 decibles.
You should check with your ENT doctor to find out more clearly the cause of your hearing loss.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
