: My son is having a second surgery for this to remove a wall of skin growing rapidly inside his ear. I have not talked with anyone who has even heard of choleasteatoma, just wondering if anyone hear has?
I had a cholesteatoma removed when I was 24. At that time they also had to take one of the hearing bones. 6 months later I went in and they made sure they had removed all of the cholesteatoma cells and also put in a prosthetic hearing bone. My hearing is normal and I have only had a couple of bad ear infections. I hope this helps.
