General information on Ear Polyps
Ear Polyps are irregular growths primarily found in cats between the ages of 1 and 4. These growths may be caused by a natural growth defect or constant inflammation. Ear Polyps usually start their growth in the center of the ear and then develop throughout the entire ear.
Symptoms of Ear Polyps
Because of pain, cats may tilt their head or have a raised eyelid. Other symptoms of Ear Polyps may include multiple polyps found in the throat or nose, which may cause breathing problems. Cats may also have a discharge released from the ear.
Treatments for Ear Polyps
Ear Polyps are removed through surgery. If the entire growth is not removed during surgery it is common for recurrence. Surgery should be followed up with medication.

I have a Maine Coon male with both ears blocked with polyps. They cannot be treated topically and antibiotics do nothing. The only treatment with the greatest effectiveness is surgery. This is expensive but has excellent results in most cats.
