ENT: Please see an ENT specialist who will be able to perform endoscopy. They can assess you for signs of polyps and inflammation. The underlying causes may include chronic allergic responses, infections and a sample may be obtained. Your PCP may order the CAP allergy panel for your area, or during a virtual HT consult.

ENT concerns: An ear-nose-throat (ENT) specialist could do a nasal endoscopy, to view the interior of your nose & sinuses. This would allow visualization if there was a polyp.
