It is amazing how big the earwax can be that gets removed from people’s ears. Check out how Dr. KK Karade removes very hard and deeply impacted earwax from a patient’s ear in Nagpur, India. The doctor used an endoscope for the procedure. This amount of wax in the ear can cause tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ear). General anesthesia is advised if it is very painful for the patient during the wax granuloma.

Earwax is also known as cerumen. It ranges in colour from a light to dark brown, orange or yellowish to gray or even black waxy substance. It can even be dry, white and flaky.

Wax gets secreted in the ear canal of humans and other mammals. It is made by glands in the outer part of the ear canal. It is there to protect the skin of the ear canal and assists in cleaning and lubrication of the ear. It helps keep dust, dirt, and other substances from getting into the ear canal. It also provides some protection against bacteria, fungi, insects, and water.

Children’s earwax is usually softer and lighter than the earwax produced by adults. Children produce a lot of earwax, which tapers off as they grow older.

Earwax helps your ear stay healthy. There is no need to use things like a cotton bud or q-tip to clean the ears. If you feel that you need to clean your ear canal out rather book an appointment with your GP or clinic.
