Diseases of the Ear

Even though the ear, the organ of hearing, has hearing as its function, it also helps keep the balance of the body. It has three parts: (i) the external ear; (ii) the middle ear, or drum, separated from the external ear by the tympanic membrane and from the internal ear by two other membranes, but communicating with the throat with the help of the Eustachian tube; and (iii) the internal ear comprising the complicated labyrinth from which runs the auditory nerve into the brain.

Disorders of the ear should be attended to early because it is a very sensitive organ and also the inner structure is inaccessible and if the symptoms are allowed to develop, little can be done to handle them safely.
