As a surgeon, Dr. Fucci is experienced in removing tumors that occur in the ear and effect hearing. Both benign and cancerous tumors can affect hearing and balance and cause a variety of symptoms.
Tumors in the ear may include acoustic neuroma, cancers of the ear or temporal bone, or cysts. Symptoms of a tumor in the ear generally include hearing loss or ringing in the ears. Balance issues may also occur. Treatment for these tumors depends on the type and severity of the tumor, but may include radiation or surgical removal.
