Population as a global variable has sociologically witnessed a great change since 1950, during which population quantitatively changed status; increased and aged. In this way and due to many factors including social change, aging gradually appeared. Aging people as depreciated individuals are highly in need of general medication, especially otolaryngological services. Aging people are very vulnerable people. They experience more health disorders as compared with younger age groups whose bodies are stronger and healthier. Aging people are double-sidedly increasing in Asian countries; those born in cities, plus those added from rural areas in their old age. Sad to say, older people in Asia have more increased as compared with medical facilities in majority of countries. Those in balanced situation even face more elderly people in the years to come. As women live longer compared with men, they get hurt more than men who live shorter. As observed in table above, Asian countries had almost half the life expectancy in 1950 as compared with the year 2000. As earlier, infants and children were widely subject to death, life expectancy used to remain low. In this way, many parents could not even have the chance of seeing their grandchildren. Aging and seniority cause a large number of diseases and disorders. Asia with about fifty countries is facing increasing aging people. Many countries of the continent do not have enough medical doctors particularly specialty for aging people (geriatricians). Those seniors with disease, or want to seek anti-aging therapies, usually refer to otolaryngologists for their treatments.
