The specialist at Orlando Ears, Nose and Throat understand how frustrating nasal congestion, breathing problems, allergic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis, and sinus polyps can be. Understanding why they happen and the best way to treat the condition means you can finally find relief! 

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology 

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common medical conditions worldwide, reported to affect almost 12% of the adult population. It is characterized by inflammation of the nose and sinus cavities.

About 20% of patients with CRS have nasal polyps, benign growths in the nasal cavities that are thought to originate from the ethmoid sinuses. Nasal polyps tend to be present in both sides of the nasal cavity. One-sided nasal polyps may need to be investigated further as they might be malignant nasal or sinus tumors.

Chronic inflammation from medical conditions such as, immune disorders, allergies, sinus infections, drug sensitivity, and asthma, can cause polyps. 

While polyps themselves are not painful, the symptoms associated with them can be life altering. 

Pressure in the face and forehead

A stuffy or runny nose

Difficult time breathing through your nose

Headaches, or pain in the face or upper teeth 

Chronic sinus infections 

Decrease in the ability to taste or smell 

Chronic snoring 

Other common causes of continuous congestion are allergic rhinitis and chronic sinusitis. Both of which have similar symptoms as sinus polyps and can make life miserable. The first step to relief is to contact Orlando Ears, Nose & Throat.
