About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can occur at any age and can be caused by something as common as an ear infection or earwax buildup. Hearing loss can also happen due to aging, exposure to loud noise, physical injury, or a medical condition such as a tumor, and may be accompanied by tinnitus (ringing in the ear), dizziness, or imbalance.
