Hello,
How bad is the snoring ?
Are you spending sleepless nights with sound enveloping you, and your friend enjoying a peaceful sound (pun intended ) sleep !
As his X-Ray reveals that he has a deviated nasal septum and sinusitis too, he's apt to snore.
Sinusitis usually develops if nasal blockage due to deviated nasal septum has lasted long.
But the primary concern is to treat his deviated septum.
It can only be treated with Septoplasty ( surgery of the nasal septum).
It is a good and reliable procedure.
His sinusitis will resolve once his nasal passage starts remaining patent.
So, don't you worry; consult an ENT Specialist. He will solve the problem.
take care.
Wish you soundless nights !!!

I have a problem with snoring; its really embarrassing and is there anything that will help with it. I hesitate to spend the night at a friend s house. Would taking medication like Sudafed help. Also, I have insomnia really bad; is melatonin a supplement that would help with this. I don t like the idea of taking sleeping pills, is there some other thing that might help. Thank you

My husband, who is 38, has a biopsy tomorrow as he has a growth on or around his adenoids. He snores badly, and has congestion problems on a regular basis. he is beside himself with worry. how likely is to be cancer??? I realise that you are not able to answer in definatley, but, could it simply be a case of enlarged adenoids? his tonsils were removed when he was 6, as he suffered from tonsilitis on a regular basis. he also has problems with his ears with constant ringining hi his ears. His wisdom teeth should be removed urgently according to a recent dental appointment and he has problems with his jaw. hope this is helpful information..... thank you.
