Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
I will try to explain the things as follows
Submandibular Sialodanitis - refers to infection/inflamamtion of the salivary gland present in the floor of oral cavity
Rhinosinusitis with Anosmia/Hypogeusia - Infection /Inflammation of nose and sinuses with decrease in smell
DNS-R/Hypertrohied Turbinate - means Deviated nasal Septum with increase in size of soft tissue swelling in the lateral wall of nose

Your CT scan suggestis multiple polyps in nose and sinuses. Nose has nerve fibres for smell in the roof. Due to polyps the air is not reaching there thus causing ansomia

You will need treatment for sialoadenitis and nasal polyps. I would advise you for a ENT consultation. Possibly nasal polyps will require surgery. I hope this answers your concerns. Feel free to contact me if your need more information on this

With warm regards threatening
Ravinder Sharma
