Tinnitus is a common clinical symptom for a variety of reasons, but for some tumors, tinnitus is an early symptom that cannot be ignored, and is one of the main causes of patients seeking medical treatment.
According to a clinical survey, when analyzing the clinical manifestations of 800 cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and 50 cases of brain neuroma, XULTX% was found in patients with tinnitus symptoms. Tinnitus is a self-perception in the patient’s ear. The performance of each person is quite different, such as humming, insects or clocks, like the sound of the wind, the roar of the machine, etc. The severity of these symptoms often makes the patient upset. So that it affects life. Why does nasopharyngeal cancer produce tinnitus?
This is due to the infection of the nasopharynx tumor, edema, and blockage of the eustachian tube opening in the side wall of the nasopharynx. It manifested as sick side tinnitus, which gradually worsened and had hearing loss. Therefore, when unexplained persistent tinnitus occurs, you should go to the hospital for ENT examination, confirm the diagnosis, eliminate the tumor, and treat it promptly.
The main treatment for nasopharyngeal cancer is radiation therapy. In most patients, after a long period of time, there is still tinnitus and hearing loss over a long period of time. The reason for this performance is that after the nasopharynx receives a large amount of radiation, the tissue around the eustachian tube is fibrotic, which is temporarily unable to control the normal opening and closing of the eustachian tube.
On the other hand, after radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma, chronic inflammatory changes occur in the nasopharynx, secretions block the eustachian tube, and tinnitus can occur. As the diseased tissue is repaired, the tinnitus will gradually disappear.
Therefore, tinnitus can not be ignored.
