A2Many people have a ringing in their ears and there they never figure out what it is caused by. In my personal case, the ringing in my ears went away after I was treated for extreme anemia (treated with Iron).
A3Acoustic neuromas. it's small, slow growing benign tumors that press against or invade the auditory nerves. If your tinnitus is only in one ear, you should see your physician to rule this one out.
also one side ripping of eardrum.
wax blockage.
one ear infection.

some of them you know you have (ripped eardrum) and the others- it'll be a good idea to see a Dr.
