Hello, Tri Handoko. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Nasal polyps are tissue that grows on the walls of the nasal passages, in the form of soft tissues, generally do not cause pain, and are not malignant. This network usually has a stalk. Its size can be small to the size of a nasal cavity that is at risk of nasal congestion. To diagnose nasal polyps, the doctor needs to do anamnesis and physical examination of the nose. If there are indications, the doctor may perform a supporting examination in the form of a nasal endoscope or CT scan.
The goal of nasal polyp treatment is to reduce the size and remove polyps. The first line of treatment is to use anti-inflammatory drugs, in the form of spray drugs. If this therapy has not been effective, the doctor may give additional anti-inflammatory medication in the form of oral medication or injections. If the drug is still not resolved, the doctor may consider surgery. Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor or ENT specialist who treats you regarding your disease management plan.
