I have always had trouble with sunglasses due to "crooked ears" one higher than the other. But on looking I noticed my left ear sagging slightly. On feeling it it feels like I'm losing cartilage in it. Also, I've had the plugging up and hearing loss tentatively thought to be minears. And the glands are bad, though most removed on that side, some still there. Any ideas on why this is happening? The other ear is okay. Are there connectivetissue diseases that attack the cartilage of the ear? Thanks in advance for any helpyou can give.
