    ear ringing and deafness

    my father, mid fifties, says he experiences ringing in his ears and sometimes cant hear very well for short periods of time. i always thought it was due to him using the earphone set too loud when he uses his cellphone. i think this because i get ringing noises too when i use headphones, even when the volume is set at low.

    however, when he took a hearing test the doctors say his hearing is okay. the doctors then told him that his ringing and deafness have to do with him catching colds all the time, and the inflaming (?) in the nose causes his ears to ring and not hear very well. he now has the option to conduct surgery on his nose to get rid of the ringing problem.

    can anyone name this illness my father is suffering from? are the doctors giving correct advice? does the loud earphone cause impaired hearing?

    thank you
