Confirm the polyps with a plain CT PNS ( Para Nasal Sinus
) Scan. On a newer multi slice CT Scanner, this should take just one to two minutes. If your polyps are on both sides, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, anti allergic medicines, oral steroids
and steroid sprays may help reduce or shrink the polyps and let you 'buy' time before surgery. You should rule out diabetes
and high blood pressure
before such steroid treatment. Nasal Polyps are also accompanied by fungal infections. Single sided polyps usually do not respond to medications. FESS or endoscopic debrider assisted surgery is now the gold standard treatment for recurring nasal polyps with excellent results.
