I don’t know if anybody can help me but I’m 16 and have had ear problems all of my life, had grommets twice and constant ear infection after ear infection. I’m pretty sure I have a cholsteatoma but my doctor is so low and my appointments just keep getting pushed back as I had to switch from private to nhs. It’s just ongoing and I don’t know what to do as I’m worried and I’m not getting anywhere with my doctor.

Have they had a look in your ear? GPs see a lot of ears - cholesteatomas look very abnormal and if you had one, they would be able to see it when they examined you.
