Signs That You May Have a Hearing Loss

If you have hearing difficulty, you’re not alone — nearly 1 in 5 people worldwide have some level of hearing loss, and the issue spans all ages.

Hearing loss can sneak up on you and can affect more than communication. It’s also linked to other serious issues such as social isolation, depression, dementia, and even earlier mortality.

Some potential risks and signs of hearing loss to look out for include:

  • Regular exposure to loud sounds or occupational noise
  • Frequently saying “What?” or asking others to repeat themselves
  • Often needing to turn up the radio or TV louder than usual
  • Problems with phone or video chats
  • Trouble understanding speech or high-pitched sounds
  • Difficulty engaging with others in crowded or noisy spaces
  • Ringing, buzzing, or humming in the head or ears (tinnitus)
  • Ear injury or head trauma

If any of these sound familiar, taking action now with a hearing evaluation can help catch problems sooner and get you on the road to better hearing.


Types of Hearing Loss That You Might Have

Hearing loss may be sensorineural (SNHL), conductive (CHL), or mixed (MHL):

Damage to the inner ear, the hearing nerve, or the sound-transmitting hair cells of the ear’s cochlea can lead to sensorineural hearing loss. It’s the most common type of hearing loss and can happen suddenly or gradually. Excess noise exposure is a typical source of SNHL, but issues such as family history or certain medications could also be the cause.

An infection or blockage (excess earwax, fluid buildup, perforated eardrum) in the outer or middle ear can keep sound from reaching the critical inner ear, which sends sound signals to the brain. This is known as conductive hearing loss. Fortunately, CHL is usually reversible once the infection or blockage is successfully treated.

Some people may experience both SNHL and CHL, a combination known as mixed hearing loss. This situation can arise when factors that can lead to the individual conditions — for example, regular exposure to loud environments and excess earwax buildup in the ear canal — together create a combined hearing issue.

Our experienced team is here to conduct a thorough examination that will assist in determining the specific type of hearing loss you may be experiencing, as well as the most suitable treatment for it. It’s also a great opportunity to learn more about prevention and have your questions answered.
