Cholesteatoma Treatments


Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include:


Thorough cleaning of the ear is necessary to remove fluid and bacteria. Eardrops are also usually administered.


Surgery may be necessary if the tumor is threatening hearing or balance.


Medications are necessary to dry up the fluid in the ear and include ear drops and oral antibiotics. Antibiotics are prescribed to eliminate any infection in the ear.
