Although tinnitus is generally seen as a simple health problem, it can actually be a precursor to important diseases in some cases.
Tinnitus is a hearing disorder that occurs as a result of pressure on the auditory system. Whether tinnitus is a serious disorder or not is determined as a result of the hearing test performed by the specialist. Since tinnitus in one ear is a sign of tumor, the patient’s ear MRI is taken. However, since the cause of each tinnitus is different, the history of the tinnitus is looked at first. Cardiologist Dr. Kerem Temel stated that tinnitus triggers hypertension. Emphasizing that blood pressure can cause serious damage to the brain due to the pressure of the blood on the vessel walls, Temel said, “Blood pressure must be measured regularly to make the diagnosis.”
