The surgical margin need not be as large as that for squamous cell carcinoma. Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the External Auditory Canal Malignant tumors can arise from the EAC, middle ear, and temporal bone. The tumor type, clinical presentation, prognosis, and treatment are determined by the anatomic location of the tumor. When patients present with advanced neoplasms, it may not be possible to define the sites of origin. The majority of cancers of the middle ear and mastoid originate in the EAC.

The infecting microorganism is usually Staphylococcus aureus. Resolution may occur with topical or systemic antibiotics. A localized abscess should be drained. Acute Diffuse Otitis Externa (Swimmer’s Ear) Acute diffuse otitis externa is a bacterial infection of the EAC and the most common form of otitis externa. Predisposing factors include frequent swimming, a warm and humid climate, a narrow and hairy ear canal, presence of exostosis in the canal, trauma or foreign body in the canal, impacted or absent cerumen, use of hearing aids or earplugs, diabetes or immunocompromised state, skin conditions such as eczema, seborrhea, and psoriasis, and excessive sweating.
