Spanish term or phrase: cuenca del oído
Taken from a document from a cancer treatment center in Texas, the document is in Spanish and English. Target is US English. It is one of a list of side effects of radiation therapy. Full sentence is:
"Inflamacion de la cuenca del oído, sensacion de odio tapado, perdida auditiva, vertigo."
Many thanks!

English translation:auricular concha
Explanation:
Not entirely sure about this, but the etymology of the Spanish word "cuenca" appears to be "concha".

Concha auriculae: depresión profunda que ocupa la parte central del pabellón auricular y cuyo fondo se continua directamente con el CAE. Sinónimo: fosa escafoides, cavum conchae, concha del pabellón auricular.
(F): Conque: fosse profonde de l'oreille externe.
(Ing): Concha, auricular concha, concha of auricle: the bowl area of the pinna (auricle) that channels sound from the environment to the ear canal.

And from the look of these ITE earphones, that's probably where they go:
Los audífonos En-El-Oído (ITE), son también conocidos como audífonos hechos a la medida, ya que son fabricados de manera individual para ajustarse al oído de la persona. Van desde los llamados instrumentos Micro-CIC, los cuales se adaptan completamente en el canal del oído auditivo, hasta los audífonos concha, que llenan completamente la cuenca del oído.
