Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which Doctor Should I Consult for Cauliflower Ear?

You can first consult you general physician, but if needed, you can also seek treatment from an otolaryngologist or ENT specialist.

2. Is Cauliflower Ear Permanent?

An auricular hematoma can be treated quite effectively and there will be no permanent disfiguration if treatment is provided swiftly. If treatment is delayed and a deformity develops however, there is nothing much that can be done and cauliflower ear is considered permanent. Reconstructive surgery may be used to correct deformities but this can be extremely expensive and is unlikely to be covered under your insurance plan.
