Meds or surgery: Fluticasone nasal spray can be helpful. Sometimes surgery is necessary. Neil-med sinus rinse also a good over the counter product.

Yes!: Any decongestant will help manage, BUT you should only take the for a short period of time. After that a nasal steroid spray long term use is safe (Nasacourt is now over the counter). A simple in office procedure can usually give you a long term solution if he sprays don't work. See an ENT to see what is best for you

Normal finding: The thymus gland is found in your mediastinum, it is part of your immune system (it helps with the development of your t-cells). It is larger in youth and diminishes in size with age. This is not a finding that suggests a problem.
