All these noises are heard only by the person who is suffering from the ringing in the ears and normally cannot Silencil be heard by anyone else, this type of Tinnitus is referred to as subjective Tinnitus.
If your doctor can hear the noise as well as the person suffering from the Tinnitus then, it is most likely being caused by turbulent blood flow in the area of the inner ear and depending on the cause of the turbulent blood flow, surgery may take care of it and correct the problem. This type of Tinnitus is referred to as objective Tinnitus.
