Hearing loss is a common, frustrating problem that can interfere with daily life.
Hearing loss occurs when sound cannot travel through the ear and into the brain. In most cases, hearing loss is caused from inner ear damage by age and/or heredity, loud noise, toxic drugs or medications. The damage usually cannot be reversed. In few cases, hearing loss is cause by a medical problem such as infection, abnormal bone growth, or tumors inside the ear.
