A significant number of painful conditions of the ear, nose, and throat have the potential to cause considerable morbidity and mortality. The clinician should also remain vigilant for diseases of this anatomic region that do not cause pain but have the potential, if undiagnosed, to create significant problems for the patient, such as acoustic neuroma, thyroid carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. This article provides the clinician with a concise road map for the evaluation of painful conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, and throat that may be responsible for headache.
