Do you have a blood relative with a hearing loss?

Your hearing is fine. No action is required. However, it is important to protect your hearing against loud noises, music, machinery, etc.

Also, if any of the following conditions exist, you should be seen by one of our audiologists.

  • Visible congenital or traumatic deformity of the ear.
  • History of active drainage from the ear within the previous 90 days.
  • History or sudden or rapidly progressive hearing loss within the previous 90 days.
  • Acute or chronic dizziness.
  • Unilateral (one ear) hearing loss of sudden or recent onset within the previous 90 days.
  • Visible evidence of significant cerumen (earwax) accumulation or a foreign body in the ear canal.
  • Pain or discomfort in the ear.
