The ears are related to the sense of hearing but also provide with a sense of balance. Nose, on the other hand, is also a sensory organ that provides with the sense of smell along with the sense of taste as well (partial). Lastly, the throat is responsible for providing a route for the food to reach the digestive tract as well providing a pathway for air to reach the lungs. If the health of any of these organs is compromised, your quality of life is ultimately affected.
The ears, nose, and throat are the essential organs that have separate but related functions. Hence, dysfunction of these organs can dramatically affect the quality of your life and in some cases may lead to a medical emergency. If you have chronic ENT problems, it is advisable to see an otolaryngologist or ENT specialist in the management of your disorder. Several different symptoms may suggest that you need medical attention. Ear infections, for example, are one of the most prevalent ENT disorders that can cause difficulty in hearing, loss of balance, pain, and pressure, or even fluid discharge from the ear.
