Mastoiditis is an inflammation of the mastoid bone, which is the bone behind the ear that plays an important role in the hearing process. Mastoiditis is usually caused by a middle ear infection (otitis media) that recurs or does not heal properly.
From the results of the CT scan, it can be seen that you have long-standing (chronic) inflammation of the mastoid bone (mastoiditis) and otitis (inflammation of the ear) media (middle). Most otitis media is caused by bacterial or viral infections. so you need to do the treatment until it is complete so as not to cause other complications such as meningitis. in addition, you should also avoid swimming activities until your ear condition improves.
