When small, usually of no concern. Small mucus retention cysts and mild mucosal thickening may be related to mild chronic sinusitis. However, these mild findings may not even cause noticeable symptoms. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with ethmoid sinus disease by CT scan. I was also dx with high blood pressure. Started Bystolic (nebivolol) one week ago. Can this sinus condition?

MRI says, minor mucosal disease in the sphenoid sinus. Minor sphenoid sinus mucosal thickening. Should I be concerned?
Mucosal thickening in the right great than left maxillary & sphenoid sinuses with scattered mucosal disease in ethmoid air cells. What's this mean?

My CT say's, I've mild mucosal disease of the ethmoid sinuses. Most of the time I feel like I am not breathing. I forget to breath. What can I do
Many options: The ct is telling you there is mild inflammation of the ethmoid sinuses, but that has no effect on breathing. You breathe through your nasal passages, so a deviated septum, turbinate congestion, polyps, and other intranasal obstructions can affect breathing. Allergies certainly can contribute. Discuss this with an ENT specialist to see if there is some help for you with medication or surgery. ...Read more
