Hello,
Thanks for your question.
What symptoms do you have now?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Tinnitus (constant) and hearing loss in left ear, causing loss of concentration and thus memory

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for your reply.
These symptoms can be caused by the brain tumor like acoustic neuroma.
AV aneurysm is another possibility that can cause these symptoms.
A lymphatic swelling of the inner ear canal can also cause these symptoms.
Stroke is another possibility.
Hence, you will need further evaluation with a MRI scan of the brain and other specialized testing.
You should consult with a neurologist besides a ENT specialist.
