An endoscopic inspection of the throat and voice box can be used to help your provider diagnose conditions that are affecting the throat and voice.
What Conditions Can an Endoscopic Inspection be Used For?
At SFENTA, our providers use an endoscopic inspection to have a closer look at the throat and voice box. The procedure can help them detect certain medical conditions or abnormalities.
Our providers will often utilize this exam for patients experiencing the following symptoms:
- Recurring throat pain or cough
- Chronic bad breath
- Unexplained vocal changes
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
An endoscopic examination of the vocal cords or voice box can also be performed in order to remove growths. Patients may also benefit from the examination after digital imaging to assess the area further.
