Is Cholesteatoma contagious?
Translated from spanish Improve translation
The cholesteatoma is not contagious. It is an alteration that destroys part of the lining of the ear medium that can produce pain, loss of hearing, but is not transmitted from person to person. If a family member or someone close to you has cholesteatoma do not worry because you can spread it.

No, although if one ear is affected it can have negative effects overall on the other ear....NOT contagious between people/animals.
