My understanding was that it was an injury from cold water immersion that caused bone growth in the ear canal as well (not a concussive injury – but I’m not a medical doctor). I think there was something on it in Rapid mag last month, but they may not have their medical facts right either.
I’ve heard of people complaining about some hearing loss, but when I heard about the bone growth thing it sounded kinda scary.
