Cholesteatoma - Anyone??

Does anyone know much about this??

I know it can affect adults & children sadly.

My LB had a consultant appointment for hearing problems & glue ear. The consultant thinks he also has this.

He didn't tell me much just that he was referring us to urgent surgery (within 6 weeks, not that urgent to me & argued that but td otherwise would be 6-12 months!)

I have since done some research on this and it sounds pretty horrid!

Does anyone know much about it? Will they remove it in this first surgery, we haven't had a CT scan, or just confirm it?

Could kick myself for not asking more but my head was spinning & wasn't thinking straight!
