Nasal Polyp

Author: Webmaster / August 8, 2016 / Categories:

Benign growths that develop on the inside of an individual’s nose or sinuses.

Causes
Although doctors have not found a direct cause of nasal polyps, certain factors like allergies, sinus infections and asthma are often linked to the development of a polyp.

Symptoms
Polyps that are smaller in size many not produce any syptoms, but bigger ones may block the air passage of the nose. Also, individuals with polyps may develop a runny nose, snoring habits or headaches.

Treatment Procedures
For smaller polyps, doctors can recommend certain medications, like nasal sprays, to treat this condition. If the growths need to be removed, then there are a couple of surgical procedures doctors can choose from:

  • Polypectomy—removal of nasal polyps
  • Endoscopic sinus surgery—removing the nasal polyps and opening the sinuses where the polyps form
