    Objects in the Ear Directory

    If something is inserted far enough into the ear canal, it can cause damage including hearing loss. Fortunately, most of the time, this is not the case. Usually young children and those with intellectual disabilities are the primary patients for this health problem. If the object remains in the ear longer than one day, you should see your doctor. If the object is particularly dangerous, such as a battery, see your doctor right away. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about the problems associated with objects in the ear and much more.
