Nose Treatment

Nasal polyposis

Nasal polyps are painless and benign (not cancerous) growths. They’re found in nasal passages and sinuses, hollow spaces in the bones around your nose. They form from mucous membranes — thin, soft tissue that lines these body parts.

Who gets nasal polyps?

They’re usually linked with some cause of inflammation in the nose, such as:

  • Asthma.
  • Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or other allergies, such as to aspirin or fungus/fungi.
  • Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).
  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Repeat sinus infections or other infections.

What are the symptoms of nasal polyps?

Small polyps may not cause any symptoms. But as they grow, they may lead to:

  • Headaches.
  • Loss of smell or taste.
  • Nasal congestion (stuffy nose).
  • Nasal drainage (runny nose).
  • Nosebleeds.
  • Postnasal drip (constantly feeling like you have to clear your throat).
  • Pressure or pain in the sinuses, face, or top teeth.
  • Snoring.


 1)The first course of treatment for nasal polyps is often a nasal corticosteroid spray prescribed by your doctor.
2) For many people, this can shrink or remove nasal polyps. Oral corticosteroids may also be used.
3)For many with nasal polyps, they return if the irritation, allergy, infection or inflammation continues.

4)Antihistamines and decongestants may help with allergy symptoms that may lead to the development of nasal polyps, but these medications do not directly address the nasal polyps themselves.


 1)If the nasal polyp isn’t removed or shrunk by medication, then endoscopic surgery may be required to remove the polyps.
2)Your surgeon will remove the polyp, which is preventing the flow of sinus and nasal fluids from properly draining and ventilating your sinus and nasal passages. This surgery is most often completed as an outpatient procedure.
