What is Ear Wax Removal and When Does Ear Wax Become A Problem?

Hearing Health Professionals typically provide wax removal services to patients who are receiving audiological services. However, wax removal may also occur as an isolated intervention.

Cerumen, or “earwax”, is a naturally occurring substance that cleans, protects, and lubricates the external ear canal. Usually cerumen is harmless and need not be removed as it serves a protective function to the ear. However, accumulation of cerumen is a common reason for patients to seek care for ear-related problems. At times an accumulation of cerumen, or blockage of the external ear canal by cerumen, can lead to a reduction of hearing, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), itching, and ear pain (otalgia).
