Do I need another opinion?

Hubby has progressive hearing loss in one ear. He also has balance issues, memory issues, ringing in the ears and discharge from the ear. An ENT told him they believed he has an Acoustic Neuroma. Since disability sent him to that doctor, they never saw him again. I have recently got him into another ENT and theyve done an MRI. The doctor told him he has mastoiditis even though he has none of the symptoms. The first ENT was from a very highly recommended office and the 2nd ENT looks like hes high and has the giggles. They are wanting to do a CT now, but I fully believe he had an Acoustic Neuroma. Can anyone give me any insight? Should we seek a second opinion? Has anyone with an AN been misdiagnosed?
