Hello,
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.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
