Need more info: The presence of a density in the frontal sinus on a cat scan may be insignificant. We need more information on the size of the density, whether or not you have symptoms of pain, fullness or pressure in that area of the head. A radiologist may see a density of a few mm. Which is insignificant. Tell us more about the specifics of this density and your symptoms.

I would like to know if vascular eds can effect lung tissue? If so, how?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Michael Depietro
Pulmonary Critical Care 35 years experience
Not really: Vascular eds does not affect the lungs, the confusion may be caused by the fact that medicines used to treat eds like viagra (sildenafil) work by dilating blood vessels to improve blood flow to the penis. Some patients with lung disease have a problem called pulmonary hypertension, and benefit from the same drugs, only in this case the blood vessels dilating effect involves the circulation in the lungs.

What measures can be taken at home to relieve sinus pain?

Hot moist towels: Again, anything that increases your circulation will speed up and increase healing. Use hot most towels over the face to increase the circulation. Although this sounds a bit to the contrary, using a spray decongestant such as afrin, neo-synephrine, 4-way, or Vicks for a few days can constrict the swollen vessels in the mucous membranes of the nasal cavity and sinus openings and give relief.

Is it common for sinus congestion to cause a decrease in appetite?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bernstein Joel
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 60 years experience
First, diagnosis: Sinus congestion is not as easy to diagnose by the patient as one might think. You may really have nasal congestion. And most causes of nasal congestion are viral infections. Therefore, it is very likely that the overall symptoms of a viral infection may lead to a decrease in appetite. The course of these infections is 7-10 days. If longer, consult you physician.
