Dear Vinod Indurje
As mentioned in a previous reply, an ENT examination is advised to establish a possible cause. This will also include an audiogram, to establish the degree, as well as the type of hearing loss. It could either be a conductive loss (problem with the sound getting to the cochlea), or a sensory neural hearing loss, which implies that the nerve is damaged. In some cases a combination, or so called mixed hearing loss may be found. Depending on the cause, management will be suggested.
