Bruce Jenner’s Hearing Loss Leads To Brain Tumor Scare On Kardashians

Keeping Up With the Kardashians‘ beloved patriarch Bruce Jenner‘s hearing loss led to a brain tumor scare for the Olympic legend.

That’s what viewers found out on Sunday night’s episode of the family’s E! show, when the former decathlete went to the doctor after driving wife Kris Jenner and the kids crazy by blasting the TV and not being able to hear their conversations. When Bruce checked out his hearing loss, however, he got the shock of his life — an ear growth was discovered and he had to undergo an MRI to rule out a brain tumor.

But luckily, the sports hero, 63, is going to be just fine. With Kris, Kim and Khloe Kardashian by his side at Dr. Rick Friedman‘s office, Bruce learned he didn’t have a tumor. “Your MRI is clear. Your brain’s good,” Dr. Friedman said, as Bruce’s relieved family members cheered. The doctor said Bruce just needed a hearing aid.

The proud Olympian sighed, “I don’t want it to be seen,” but when his doctor recommended a tiny one, Bruce said he would consider the idea.

Bruce claimed although his hearing wasn’t as sharp as it used to be, it was good enough. However, Kim convinced Bruce’s older son, Brandon Jenner, to pressure him on the issue, and the athlete admitted to Brandon irritably, “I have to get it checked out.”

Dr. Friedman said he had a substantial decline in high frequency sound, then said he had a growth in his ear. But everything ended well for the famous dad!
