Excuse me, if I experience early symptoms of nasal polyps may I come to the clinic first and not directly to the ENT?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, I want to confirm first, what are the symptoms of nasal polyps?

Generally small nasal polyps will not cause any symptoms. If nasal polyps are large in size, the usual symptom is nasal congestion (keep in mind that nasal congestion is not only caused by nasal polyps). If there are complications of polyps such as sinusitis, sinusitis symptoms will also appear. If you have already done a nose examination to the ENT doctor and have been diagnosed with polyps, it would be better if you continue treatment at your ENT doctor. However, you may do the next control to the general practitioner because polyp treatment can also be done by administering only nasal spray (which can be prescribed by your general practitioner). If nasal polyps do not improve with the administration of the nasal spray, you will be referred back to your ENT doctor for further treatment (follow-up therapy will be a corticosteroid injection or surgery that can only be done by your ENT doctor).

If you have not done a doctor's examination and indeed have never been diagnosed with nasal polyps by a doctor, then you can do an examination with a general practitioner first. If there really is a suspicion of a certain abnormality in your nose that requires further examination, then your general practitioner will refer you to the ENT doctor for further examination.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
