Do you see that white spot? There were no warning signs or symptoms. .. just ear infections. That is a cholesteatoma.
It’s a cyst that grows and grows, destroying the bones inside my head.
How many ear infections are normal? 1 or two a YEAR! I had many more than that. Some doctors will only treat the infection… if you or your child have 3 or more in a year DEMAND a CAT scan. My first c-toma was undetected for so long when I went for surgery the doctor said I was probably only months away from dying of meningitis. It makes me sad to hear so many stories from parents who didn’t know what to ask or look for so I beg everyone… please read for more info
