1487. Ear tumours due to chronic infections

Case 1.  For those who love their dogs, continuous head shaking in their pet dogs is a grave concern for them. These ear infections do not respond to treatment and so the owner gives up. As the dog grows old, the chronic infections cause ear tumours.

One example is the 13-year-old Siberian Husky. The tumour was not malignant as it was due to chronic infections. The lab test shows that it is a ceruminous cystadenoma.  The solution was a vertical ear canal resection in this old dog.  No more complaint of head shaking and smelly ears now 2 months after surgery.  Dr Daniel did the surgery.

Case 2. In another case, I did a lateral ear canal resection and the tumours in the vertical canal were numerous.

Case 3.  Greyish ear cells or nodules inside the oldl dog
