The images of the stomach show that an audiologist removes a 2.5 cm piece of WAX from a patient's ear
- Audiologist Neel Raithatha spent minutes sifting through a huge block of wax
- Measured as much as 2.5 cm – the entire length of an average ear canal
- Raithatha and his patient gasped when it was lump and was extracted
The images of the stomach show the moment when an audiologist pulls out a giant lump of earwax that makes a patient too scared to fly.
Neel Raithatha from Leicester was stunned when in February he finally praised the huge block from the patient's ear.
He and his patient could hear the entire length of an average auditory canal long after the removal of the piece of wax that was measured no less than 2.5 cm long.
It had let the patient fly because he was afraid of the pressure, which caused pain in his ears.

Raithatha, an audiologist with 10 years of experience, could be heard with & # 39; Wow & # 39; when he did the laundry in his Hear Clinic operation in Leicester.
The video shows how he scrapes away in wax layers until the ear canal is finally gone before a head suction is used to remove the piece of wax in one piece.
The procedure was performed through an endoscope, which Mr Raithatha uses to examine the patient's inner ear.

WHAT IS EARWAX BUILT?
Earwax usually falls on its own, but in some cases it can get clogged.
It cannot be prevented because the wax is there to protect ears against water, dirt bacteria, infections and foreign objects.
You are more likely to build up if:
- You naturally produce more wax
- You have hairy or narrow ear canals
- You are old because wax hardens as you get older
- You wear a hearing aid, headphones or earplugs while pressing this wax further
Symptoms include ear pain, hearing problems, itching, dizziness, ear infection and ringing in the ears.
You can use freely available fabric softening drops or warm water to irrigate your ears.
If this does not work, seek professional medical help in case of infection.

Mr. Raithatha, who has 43,000 subscribers on YouTube and is known as the Wax Whisperer, said: “Both the customer and I were completely in shock.
& # 39; My response to removal was "Wow" and the customer's response when he saw the piece of ear wax itself was "Oh my god". Fortunately the eardrum was intact and healthy. & # 39;
Last year, Mr. Raithatha conducted a similar procedure for a woman who had such a large amount of earwax that it was reportedly left deaf.
It comes after health officials stated in November 2017 that the swabs should not be used to clean ears.
Inserting a button can damage the ear and push the wax further down, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.
The pull guide also said that ear syringes, which use a metal syringe to pump water into the ear by hand to remove wax, may be harmful.
Committee members agreed that buttons represent a & # 39; danger & # 39; may cause infections or press wax into the ear canal.
The guideline said that the ear canal & # 39; self-cleaning & # 39; is, with excess wax falling of itself and that the access to the ears can be cleaned with a damp flannel.
