What are External Ear Tumors?

The external ear canal starts at the opening of the concha and extends downwards to the eardrum.

A tumor in the external ear can be benign or malignant. External ear canal malignant tumor can be severe and need an immediate biopsy.

The most common type of malignant tumors in this area are squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma.

In some cases, the parotid gland malignant tumors can push through the ear canal's bone and skin as malignant tumors in the ear canal cystic cancer.

A biopsy will confirm the nature of growth in the ear canal. Our doctors will schedule treatment, depending on the depth and the growth of the tumor.

Procedure/ Method of External Ear Tumor Excision:

To evaluate the process more accurately, CT and MRI will be done.

The ear canal serves as a partial barrier for the growth of the tumors in the external ear canal.

If the tumor is only on the skin of the ear canal and not deeply seated, all the skin of the ear canal is removed by surgery.

The overlying skin is incised, elevated, and the bone underlying it is drilled to remove the tumor.

In case the formation of the tumor is near the eardrum, our doctor will remove the eardrum and the surrounding skin and the bone.

Similar to the correction of an atretic ear, a skin graft is placed against the bare bone.

Radiation therapy should be considered after surgery if the tumor is malignant.

Except in the very earliest of cases, it requires more radical surgery. In the case of the tumor, which has advanced beyond the ear drum's confines into the middle ear, radical surgery is indicated.

Dr. Neetu Modgil will provide you with the most advanced and highly equipped external ear tumor excision.
