Cerebrospinal fluid leak from ear

I had nasopharyngeal carcinoma (stage IV - T2N3) in 2002, and I completed induction chemotherapy and IMRT radiation in 2003. I've done well since. Now I have a cerebrospinal fluid leak from my right ear. I have suffered no head trauma so I suppose the insult to my dura is probably from the radiation. Anyone else experience this?

I had stage II and completed treatment-radiation in Nov 2003 and chemo in March 2004. I am experiencing ear congestion, mostly in my right ear. What are your symptons?
