Sinusitis is an infection that involves inflammation of the nasal path and sinuses. The main job of sinuses is to produce mucus that protects the body against germs. Excess production of mucus, generally during cold leads to the generation of bacteria and viruses in the sinus cavity.
Viral sinus infection lasts for around a week and is cured without any specific medication. Bacterial sinus sustains beyond a week or two and needs proper treatment.
Based on duration, sinus can be classified into three types-acute, subacute and chronic.
Acute sinusitis is the one that lasts generally for 7-10 days or even 4 weeks (in case of the bacterial sinus). Subacute sinusitis covers around 3 months. Bacterial infection and seasonal allergies are the main causes of subacute sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis lasts beyond the period of 3 months. Usually, patients with persistent allergies are observed to suffer from chronic sinusitis.

Our hearing or auditory system can be broadly categorized into two parts- peripheral and central. The peripheral hearing includes the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear consists of eardrum, auricle and ear canal. Middle ear contains malleus, incus and stapes. These three small bones are collectively denoted as ossicles. Malleus connects to the eardrum linking to the outer ear and the stapes connects to the inner ear. Inner ear has cochlea that is further connected to the central hearing system by auditory nerve. Cochlea consists of several special fluids which play an important role in hearing mechanism. The central hearing system consists of the auditory nerve and an incredibly complex pathway through the brain stem and onward to the auditory cortex of the brain.
Sound waves or simply the vibrations in our surroundings are collected by the auricle and are further channeled into ear canals. These sound waves vibrate the eardrum. Now, these eardrum vibrations are moved to the ossicles present in middle ear. From here vibrations are transferred to the cochlea in the inner ear.
Cochlea consists of thousands of hair cells that are sensitive to a wide range of such vibrations. High pitched sounds stimulate hair cells in lower portion of cochlea whereas the low pitched vibrations stimulate hair cells in the upper part. After detecting the frequency or pitch of a sound, each hair cell generates nerve impulses that are transferred immediately along the auditory nerve.
Auditory cortex is the hearing centre in the brain. Here several such vibrations are converted into meaningful sound. This whole process takes place within a fraction of a second.
ENT ( Ear, Nose and throat) cancers, also called as head and neck cancers damage the soft tissues of head and neck region. Nasopharyngeal or nose cancer is commonly detected in men, thyroid cancer in women and lymphoid in both.

Besides this nosebleeds are also a symptom of nose cancer usually when the bleeding takes place continuously in small quantities. If bleeding is accompanied by headache and abnormal help, it needs to be medically examined.
Ulcers or severe swelling in mouth that is not recovered within a week can also be a sign of ENT cancer.
Hoarseness of voice takes place in case of cancer in the voice box. Besides voice box, it can be a symptom of thyroid cancer as well.

Other than rehashed infections, a cholesteatoma may likewise be brought about by an ineffectively working Eustachian tube, which is the cylinder that leads from the rear of the nose to the center of the ear.
The Eustachian tube permits air to course through the ear and adjusts ear pressure. It may not work appropriately because of any of the accompanying:
Enduring earache, ear drainage, ear pressure, hearing loss, dizziness, or facial muscle shortcoming signals the requirement for an assessment by an Otolaryngologist. An ENT specialist can affirm the presence of a Cholesteatoma.
