Should my 4 year old daughter see a doctor or dentist for a mouth issue that’s causing her to refuse to eat or drink? (photo)

Hi,Your daughter looks like she has severe gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) so it would be most advisable for her to go visit a dentist who is experienced in seeing children. Hope this helps.

Can dry impacted ear wax resolve on its own with olive oil ear drops without ear syringing or microsuction?

It really depends on how impacted the ear wax is! From experience, by the time patients come to see ENT for help regarding their impacted ear wax, they have already been trying multiple times with olive oil, Cerumol drops, syringing at the GP, all of which have failed. I still think the best and safest way to remove earwax is to have it removed under direct vision with the microscope by your friendly ENT specialist who has the special fine ear instruments needed to gently and painlessly remove the trapped earwax.

How safe is acoustic neuroma surgery?

As you know, there are risks as well as benefits to everything in life, including surgery. When we decide who are the most suitable candidates to undergo surgery to remove acoustic neuromas (inner ear nerve tumours), we have to consider their age and general health status, tumour size and rate of growth, site, hearing status, dizziness/vertigo and any other relevant issues. This is actually a rather complex topic as acoustic neuromas may be surgically removed in 3 different surgical approaches.
