Have polyps in nose, polyp on tonsil. How to remove this?
I have severe allergy symptoms and now after four years are told it could be bacteria overgrowth causing persistent flu-like symptoms and diarrhea . I also have develped small polyps in nose , and now have found out I have polyp on tonsil . Waiting on ENT appt for this to be removed. But they say this is unusual. How is this removed? Thank you
Allergy is known to cause polyps in the nasal cavity. These polyps are usually multiple and re-occur when exposed to allergic stimuli.
An ENT examination and removal is required.
A polyp or other growths can appear on the tonsil.
Removal is required for these lesions.
However, if allergy is the underlying cause treatment of allergy is required to completely celar the polyps.
Thanks and take care
