You may well be causing damage to the middle ear by not having this looked at. This in turn could affect your hearing. Your ENT can at least examine the ear, and make a diagnosis. In most cases, this is a treatable condition, and will mostly revolve around sorting out the nose, as it is likely the cause of your problems. If conservative management fails, your doctor may even suggest the placement of grommets to relieve the problem. This wil only succeed if the nasal symptoms are controlled.
Your examination will most likely include an examination of the nasal passages.
