A 63-year-old man has become progressively hard of hearing. He's a retired airplane mechanic. He also notices a lot of wax in his ears. What kind of hearing loss is this man likely to have?
B. Conductive AND sensorineural
What do you think?
I think B (both) but I'm not sure if it's a trick question, that why i asked
I agree -- it is B.

Thanks for asking.
B. sensorineural hearing loss..this occurs when prolonged exposure to loud noise leads to damage of the cochlear cells.
