Deafness - a range of causes - Better Health Channel- open

Deafness is caused by many different events, including injury, disease and genetic defects. One of the most common causes of deafness is exposure to loud noises. A deaf person may have mild to profound hearing loss. Temporary deafness has many causes, including wax in the ear, drugs or an infection. Tinnitus (ringing in the ear) may occur on its own, or in conjunction with hearing loss.
