Hello @jbondzich, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

@learningstudent good for you for persisting in trying to find answers. This sounds like something you should take to a medical professional for further discussion and/or investigation. You mentioned in an earlier post about restricted access to health care because of COVID-19. Many facilities are opening up again. Necessary medical care should not be deferred.

Tue, Apr 28 10:14am · Cholesteatoma in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Hi @irene5, I'm sure you've search the Internet thoroughly. None-the-less, I thought I'd post this article about cholesteatoma from Healthline:
Cholesteatoma: Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis

According to the article, cholesteatomas can return and it is important to catch a regrowing cyst early. I'm also @genuinekim and @judysmayo to get their experiences about recurrence and symptoms they experienced.

Irene, does your son or is your able to tell you when he is not well or is experiencing early symptoms like the ear draining a foul smellng fluid or pressure in the ear?
