Hi I am Haripraghash. 30 years old male. I did a CT scan of para nasal sinuses and it read as 1.) Septum deviation with bony spur 2.) Mild mucosal thickening in bilateral ethmoidal,axillary and frontal sinuses 3.) Polypoidal thickening in maxillary sinus and right maxillary ostium occluded. I have been having a bad cold and blocked ears for over 1 week now. Little worried about the blocked ears.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
You have mucosal edema and blocked sinus opening .
You have to take antibiotics , decongestants , nasal saline and steroid sprays .
Then you will have to get operated for ---
the deviated nasal septum
nasal spur
blocked sinuses needs to opened and the sinus disease needs to be cleared .
These sinuses are the hollow spaces with the nasal skin or the mucosa over it.
Due to allergies or anatomical deformity like the deviated septum or spur which you have the sinuses do not get ventilated properly and the mucosa get edematous and polyps form.
