Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

The clicking in your ear is not related to the cardiac arrhythmia or prostate cancer.

It could be related to an inner ear disorder or any metabolic disorders (chronic anemia, thyroid gland dysfunction, etc.).

For this reason, I would recommend consulting first with an ENT specialist to exclude an inner ear disorder.

Other tests to consider, especially considering the fact that you have cardiac arrhythmia are:

- complete blood count for anemia
- an ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring to examine your heart rhythm trends for a prolonged time and investigate for the type of cardiac arrhythmia
- blood electrolytes
- thyroid hormone levels.

It is also necessary to closely monitor your blood pressure values. Blood pressure fluctuations may lead to persistent ear noise.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
