vocal cord nodule is a small, inflammatory or fibrous growth that develops on the vocal cords of people who constantly strain their voices. These are also called screamer's nodule, singer's nodule and teacher's nodule. A vocal cord polyp is a small swelling in the mucous membranes covering the vocal cords.
Treatment requires modification of voice habits, and a speech therapist may be of help. Resting the vocal cords by allowing little or no speaking for several weeks may permit the nodules to shrink.
In some patients inhaled steroid
spray may be helpful.
If nothing helps then surgery is the only treatmnet.They can be removed during the course of a special examination (a laryngoscopy
) in which a metal tube with a light on the end is passed through the mouth and into the throat. A small, sharp, cup-shaped punch is threaded through the tube and used to clip off the polyps.
I hope this will help
