Was diagnosed with fibrous displasia of right temporal bone

Customer Question

Was diagnosed with fibrous displasia of right temporal bone which has caused severe conductive hearing in my right ear. Had a follow up CT scan which shows fibrous displacia in the pet round apex and clivus. Bone described has having a general ground glass appearance. Was referred to a specialist but won't see him for several weeks. Any thoughts or opinions.
Thanks,

Fibrous Dysplasia of the bone is a localized disorder of bone characterized by abnormal proliferation of fibrous tissue (scar tissue) interspersed with normal or immature bone, endocrine dysfunction, abnormal pigmentation in the area.

is a good article.

3 general subtypes of fibrous dysplasia of the bone are recognized: monostotic, polyostotic, and McCune-Albright syndrome. The monostotic form is the mildest and most common form (approximately 70% of cases)

sometimes treatment with bisphosphonate bone strengthening agents can help
