Hi Vaishnavi Reddy,

It seems like you are having polyp in the maxillary sinus. The soft tissue intensity in the right mastoid air cells seems to be due to infection.

A FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery) surgery to remove the polyp will be helpful.

Meanwhile, do steam inhalation twice daily with Karvol Plus for symptomatic relief.

Get well soon.
