Hoarse voice. Endoscopy shows polyps on right vocal cord. History of diabetes. Causes?
i have been having hoarse voice & my endoscopy examination indicates polyps on the right vocal cord. i do not smoke & drinkh however I am a type 2 diabetic with controlled sugar level through use of combination drugs. Since being on these drugs, I have developed frequent barbs. What can be the cause of polyp & is there a non surgical option
Hi thanks for your question.
Exact cause of polyp is not known,though smoking and voice abuse are thought to be contributing factors.There is no treatment other than surgical for removal of polyp.
Hope this answers your question.
