1. Isolated, small maxillary polyps do not require treatment. If you have an AC (Antro-choanal) polyp, it will require treatment.
2. Sphenoid sinus polyps or sinusitis is usually associated with visual symptoms.
3. Your latest CT images are the gold standard for deciding further treatment. Kindly upload the images on any free file sharing site such as www.filesanywhere.com and post a link here.
4. Facial deformities and malignancy are rare unless your polyps are bilateral and long standing. An inverted papilloma
(transitional cell or Ringertz's papilloma) may co-exist along with long standing polyps. Frank malignancy would also cause additional symptoms such as:
a) nasal obstruction
b) one sided nasal bleeding
c) foul smelling nasal discharge,
d) watering of eye,
e) painless fall of teeth.
5. Your neck swellings must be investigated by USG Neck and FNAC, if required. If infection is the cause you may require a course of antibiotics.
6. Sharp facial pain is known to occur in cases of sinusitis.
7. Are you on any medication currently for trigeminal neuralgia? Blurred vision
may occur as a side effect of some medications such as Tegretal (carbamazepine
) in doses above 400 mg/day.
