Hi Doctor, I have 1 Tonsil stone from last 1 month. I have tried anti-biotics, betadine gargle and even salt water gargle as suggested by the doctor, but still no effect of it. I have been facing little issues while gulping things (it feels like there is something stuck inside). Also, due to this I have started experiencing acidity problem and chest pain at times. So, I want to get it removed. It is of small in size. So, do I need to get an operation done or it can be removed without getting operated. So, could you provide information on this and also the charges for it. Thanks.

Its tonsillolith, its not necessary to undergo operation for removing tonsillolith. It's generally removed manually and maintaining oral hygiene after it is sufficient. But, main concern in your history is development of clinical symptoms while swallowing also chest pain. Repeated tonsillitis or tonsillar infection is an indication of operation. So, get a whole body check up to rule out any systemic affects developed and undergo tonsillectomy if needed. Regarding cost, tonsillectomy can be done either by dissection method or coblation method (both under rs 35000). Best of luck.

If there is a hole/perforation in ear drum and there is hearing loss on audiometry then one should go for surgery (myringoplasty). Get an audiometry test done and review with report.

Most commonly, trauma to the nose triggers a nosebleed. Trauma to the outside of the nose, such as a blow to the face, or trauma inside the nose, such as nose picking or repeated irritation from a cold, can cause a nosebleed. Less commonly, an underlying disease process, such as an inability of the blood to clot, may contribute to the bleeding. Inability of the blood to clot is most often due to blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin) or aspirin. Liver disease can also interfere with blood clotting. Abnormal blood vessels or cancers in the nose are rare causes of nosebleeds. High blood pressure may contribute to bleeding but is almost never the only reason for a nosebleed.There are many causes of nosebleeds. A sudden or infrequent nosebleed is rarely serious. If you have frequent nosebleeds, you could have a more serious problem. Dry air is the most common cause of nosebleeds. Living in a dry climate and using a central heating system can dry out the nasal membranes, which are tissues inside the nose. This dryness causes crusting inside the nose. Crusting may itch or become irritated. If your nose is scratched or picked, it can bleed. Taking antihistamines and decongestants for allergies, colds, or sinus problems can also dry out the nasal membranes and cause nosebleeds. Frequent nose blowing is another cause of nosebleeds. Other common causes of nosebleeds include: foreign object stuck in the nose chemical irritants allergic reaction injury to the nose repeated sneezing picking the nose cold air upper respiratory infection large doses of aspirin Other causes of nosebleeds include high blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, blood clotting disorder, and cancer. Most nosebleeds do not require medical attention. However, you should seek medical attention if your nosebleed lasts longer than 20 minutes or occurs after an injury. This may be a sign of a posterior nosebleed, which is more serious.

I am suffering from both of maxillary sinusitis what is the reason behind it and how can it be controlled kindly suggest me.

Main symptoms for maxillary sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

Is it necessary to clear the wax in the ear periodically in the normal condition?
Hello, human ear can prevent a lot of dust to accumulate because of certain hair like structures that are present in the outer ear. It is not necessary to use cotton buds and clear the wax in normal conditions. However, if you feel a decrease in hearing and if there is accumulation of wax, it should be cleared.

I would advise you to show it to a gastroenterologist. It could be symptoms of something called gastroesophageal reflux disease or a disease called achalasia. The gastroenterologist may do a test called barium swallow or an endoscopy if required.

One can not stop formation of stone but remove the origin of stone by doing tonsillectomy. This is the best and permanent solution.
