Wasnt sure whether I should seek medical advice. Ear has had alittle blood ober last few weeks. Not sure if putting my finger in during the night caused the bleed

Hi I have gone through your mail as you said you were having cholestatoma in your ear and same had been operated four years back since than it was OK,but for last one month you are getting recurrence of same symptoms like ear discharge,itching, pain and now blood is also oozing out.after considering your complaints I am suspecting that unfortunately you are having recurrence of cholesteatoma of your ear,because cholesteatoma is a disease of ear which has recurrence even after surgery,you are adviced to go for C.T.Scan of ear which is named as HRCT.this C.T.scan of ear will disclose the reality about recurrence.I suspect probably you have errosion of sinus plate which is responsible for blood in ear you should contact your for further treatment.Thank.
