Hearing loss can affect any age and one in six adults have some degree of hearing loss, which increases to three in four in old age. Children can also be affected, and is usually due to fluid in the middle ear. It can also be due to chronic infection and sometimes may be congenital where a child is born with a hearing loss either due to genetic factors or other.
