Exostosis and Osteomas
Exostosis and osteomas are terms that are often used interchangeably. Although these two bony conditions share some similarities, they arise for different reasons.
So why do these bony growths occur in the ear? Are they dangerous? How are they treated and do they even need to be treated? In this course, we will explore all these questions and more. We will examine real patient photographs and consider the differences in these bony abnormalities.
Before you begin, we recommend that you have completed The Ear: Anatomy and Physiology course to ensure that you have a base level of knowledge and understanding of the ear. A brief Anatomy overview is also provided at the beginning of this course.
