The outer ear consists of the pinna and the ear canal. The ear canal ends at the eardrum.
In the membranous wall of the ear canal there are glands which produce cerumen (earwax). At the edge of the ear canal there are some small hairs, hair follicles, which serve as protection against foreign bodies.
