had a ct scan of head and neck shows mild lobulation of soft tissue in the nasopharynx region. suggests lymphoid tissue
Hi. Thanks for your query. This is good that this is suggestive of Lymphoid tissues. These are normally present and get enlarged due to chronic infection and inflammation. This need to be treated for about 3 weeks under the care of an ENT surgeon and you may be fine. If you get symptomatic relief in your symptoms and the Doctor finds suitable response, nothing more is needed to be done
