Thanks for the query.

The polyps can be removed easily and there are very minimum chances of recurrence of the polyps that is 5-10%. they are easily excised at the base and cautrised which reduces the chances of reccurence. however the DNS have higher chances of reccurence that is 30-40%. The voice quality will be improved with the polyp removal and the DNS have no effect on the voice. The suggestion is to excise polyps as it is a social deprivation which will lead to depression.

if you still have some query, feel free to contact.
