Thanks for posting your query.
A hole in the ear drum is usually caused by a chronic infection of the inner ear or a trauma. This is not likely to cause any brain cancer or any other type of cancer. But the chronic infection can affect the other inner ear structures. The cause of the perforation of the ear drum must be detected and properly treated to avoid further complications.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I've been to the doctors office three times this last month for ear infection- took amoxicillin the first time round, then was prescribed azithromiacin*, and have yet to feel relief from inner ear pain- I'm concerned because the doc keeps giving me narcotic pain meds to help but it's been three weeks! Whats wrong? Feel pain, "cloggedness", and cant hear much in that ear...I've researched perforated eardrum and think that's what I have. The doc hasn't mentioned much other than "finish antibiotic course" and have tried vicodine and percocet so I just don't want the risk of dependence or withdrawal. what should I tell my doctor to get her attention??? Feels like she doesn't trust that I know my body better than her, and just because Im not a doctor doesn't mean I don't have basic medical knowledge and terms...

I recently got an ear infection with a ruptured eardrum. My doctor prescribed amoxicillin/clavunate potassium and oxofloxacin otic solution due to the large amount of discharge in my ear. My prescriptions will last me 10 days. Can i go to an amusement park and get on the rollercoasters once i'm done with the meds and the infection is gone even if i still have the ruptured eardrum?

I am in las vegas and need to get back to my home in montreal canada. I have an ear infection that does not seem to be clearing up despite 5 days of antibiotics. I have seen two doctors in a clinic and was referred to the er. The er doctos were unable to see the eardrum clearly. Right now I canot hear from the ear at all. The doctors think this is due to fluid and not a perforated eardrum. I am now scheduled on a direct flight to montreal tomorrow, but am wonderiing if it would be sfaer to drive? I do not want to have any permanent hearing loss
