Not all holes in the ear drum usually require surgery. The decision to undertake surgery involves an appreciation of a group of factors: the cause, age, hearing capacity at moment, evolution of symptoms, indication or circumstances of the hole and the general health status of the patient.
Consulting an ENT specialist is the ideal situation for him to decide. However, not all holes in the ear drum usually require surgery.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Luchuo, MD.
