Nasal polyps are teardrop shaped, non-cancerous growths which occur in the sinuses (cavity in the bone connecting the nasal cavity and the skull) or the nose. Nasal polyps are usually linked with asthma and allergies.
Symptoms of nasal polyps include blocked nose, sneezing, postnasal drip, running nose, facial pain, difficulty smelling, loss of taste and itching in and around the eyes.
Nasal polyps can be a symptom of aspirin allergy, asthma, allergic rhinitis, acute infection, cystic fibrosis and sinusitis. Sometimes, nasal polyps can also cause nasal allergy attacks. In such cases, steroids and antibiotics are effective.
If you are experiencing symptoms of nasal polyps, it is recommended to consult an ENT specialist for nasal polyp treatment. The doctor will usually diagnose nasal polyps with a nasal endoscope which provides a magnified view of the nose. Nasal corticosteroid sprays and certain medications are also employed to treat nasal polyps. In some cases, surgery is the only option if nasal sprays and medications don't make any difference in treating nasal polyps. A Nasal polyp surgery is less effective if you have aspirin sensitivity or asthma.
