What is nasal polyps?
Nasal polyps are soft, painless, unnatural growth on the lining of your nose or sinus. They hang down like tears or grapes. They are caused by chronic inflammation due to asthma, recurrent infections, allergies, drug susceptibility, or some immune disorders.
Nasal polyps are normal, non-cancerous, diarrhea-shaped developments that are formed in the nose or sinus. They are usually found around the area where the sinus nasal cavity opens. Mature people look like peeped grapes.
Small nose can not cause the symptoms of animal symptoms. Large growth or group of nasal organisms can block your nasal passage, or you may have trouble breathing, a continuous decrease of smell and frequent infections.
Polyps may develop in one or both nostrils at the same time; They can grow on their own or in groups. Large polyps or clusters can cause difficulty in breathing and can affect the patient’s sense of smell. They can stop sinus and cause problems, such as regular infections.
Nasal polyps are a painless soft growth inside your nose. They are not usually serious, but they can continue to grow and if they are not treated they can block your nose.
What is the cause of nasal polyps?
Inflammation occurs in the liquid-producing lining of your nose and sinus (mucous membrane). There is some evidence that those who develop polyps, their mucous membranes have a different immune system reaction and various chemical markers, which do not develop the polyps.
Nose animals can be made at any age, but they are the most common among the young and middle-aged adults. Nasal animals can be formed anywhere in your sinus or nasal path, but they are most often seen in areas where the sinuses near your eyes, nose and cheeks go through the circular path to your nose (astromaterials complex).
Mucosa is a very wet layer that helps protect your nose and sinus inside and moisten your breathing air. During an infection or induced irritation of allergy, the mucus swelling and red becomes nose, and it can produce fluid that is dried up.
• Asthma is a disease that causes inflammation and constipation of the entire airways
• Some people may have the possibility of developing nasal organisms with aspirin sensitivity.
• Allergic fungus sinusitis, allergic to ventilation fungus
• Cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that results in the production and secretion of abnormally thick, sticky fluid, including nasal and thick mucus from the sinus membrane.
• Churg-Strauss syndrome, a rare disease that causes swelling of blood vessels
Chronic or recurrent sinus infection
• Allergic rhinitis
• Cystic Fibrosis
• Cherg-Strauss syndrome
The complications of nasal polyps?
Nasal animal can cause complications because they block normal airflow and fluid drainage, and also due to their old swelling due to their development.
• obstructive sleep apnea
In this potentially serious condition, you stop and breathe often during sleep.
• Asthma flares up
Chronic Rhinosinusitis can increase asthma.
• Sinus infections
Nasal polyps can make you more sensitive to sinus infections that often become recurrent or chronic.
• Cystic fibrosis
an old disease which affects the organs like liver, lungs, pancreas and intestine.
• Churg-Strauss syndrome
a disease that results in swelling of blood vessels.
Nose animals can occur at any age, but it is more prone to adults in young and middle-aged people.
People with the nose of their parents have a higher risk of developing.
What are the symptoms of nasal polyps?
Nasal polyps are associated with inflammation of the lining of your nose and sinus, which lasts for more than 12 weeks (chronic rhinosinitis, also called chronic sinusitis). However, this is possible – and even more likely – having chronic sinusitis without nose polyps.
Nose polyps are soft and they lack sensation, so if they are small then you probably do not know that you have them. Multiple growth or a large polyp can block your nasal passage and sinus.
• a runny nose
• Continuous clutter
• post nasal drip
• Decrease or absent feelings of smell
• loss of sense of taste
• Facial pain or headache
• Rude or blocked nose
• post nasal drip
• running nose
• facial pain
• Trouble with the sense of smell
• Taste of taste
• a feeling of pressure on your forehead and face
What is the treatment of nose polyps?
If you need treatment, you may start with a nasal corticosteroid spray. In many cases, it can shrink or rid the nose of the animal. But some people need to take corticosteroid such as a mouth for prednisone for a week.
• Endoscopy of the nose A narrow tube with a luminous magnifying lens or small camera (nasal endoscope) enables your doctor to take a detailed examination inside your nose and sinus. He or she incorporates an endoscope into a nostril and guides it into your nasal cavity.
• Imaging studies. Images obtained with Computed tomography (CT) can help your doctor to pinpoint the size and location of polyps in deep areas of your sinus and evaluate the range of swelling. These studies can help your doctor avoid the presence of other potential obstructions in your nasal cavity, such as structural abnormalities or any other type of cancer or non-cancerous growth.
• Allergy Test. Your doctor may suggest a skin test to determine whether allergy is contributing to old swelling. With a skin prick test, small droplets of allergens (allergens) prick in the skin of your front or upper back. Your doctor or nurse leaves your skin for 15 minutes to signal your skin allergic reaction.
The goal of treatment for nose animals is to reduce or eliminate them. Medicines are usually the first approach. Occasionally surgery may be required, but it can not provide a permanent solution because polyps are repetitive.
