A British man's 33 year ear pain and supposed deafness in his one ear has been solved.
From the age of 14 Stephen Hirst was plagued by earaches. The constant pain was so bad that he couldn't concentrate. And he knew he had difficulty hearing in the same ear.
The ear was also frequently infected. And he had to use a lot of cotton balls to help ease the pain in his ear.
But now, that's all gone.
It turns out that a tooth was trapped in Hirst's ear. Doctors removed the tooth and Hirst is feeling just fine, thank you.
Interestingly enough, Hirst had his teeth taken out quite some time ago.
So, how did the tooth get there?
Hirst thinks he may have pushed a back tooth into his ear when he fell as a kid.
But nobody knows for sure.
Could a tooth have grown in his ear?
You figure it out.
