How do nasal polyps affect the sinuses?
Sanford Health answeredNasal polyps are usually your body's reaction to an adverse event that manifests themselves as bulges in the lining of the nasal tissue. Polyps pose several problems but most often are associated with reduced airflow through the nose when you take a nasal breath or they may swell and block the sinuses from draining properly. While they can often be treated with sprays and/or medications, in some situations, surgical intervention is necessary to remove the polyps.
What are ear, nose, and throat specialists (otolaryngologists)?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
An otolaryngologist or ear, nose, and throat physician (ENT) is a medical doctor (MD or DO) that examines and treats problems associated with the ears, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck. The otolaryngologist trains at least five years in this field after medical school.
This head and neck surgeon also performs and supervises hearing and balance testing and diagnoses and treats common problems such as ear infections, tonsillitis, and sinusitis as well as more serious infectious diseases of the head and neck such as cancer.In addition, an otolaryngologist fits people for hearing aids and performs surgical cochlear implants, among other treatments. After passing a national examination, the otolaryngologist can be board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology.
