In chronic cases of Otitis media with effusions present for months, surgery is sometimes performed to insert a grommet, called a "tympanostomy tube" into the eardrum to allow air to pass through into the middle ear, and thus release any pressure buildup and help clear excess fluid within.

No, but like them, it is a fruit which is not usually referred to as a fruit.

Nope, both wrong.

It is a fruit. It is probably enjoyed by most people, in fact, some can become addicted to it! When we eat it, after processing, it does not resemble a fruit at all and is not classified as a fruit.
