I have ear pressure bcz hyperpneumatised both frontal and maxillary sinuses. Mucosal polyp in both maxillary sinus, nasal septum deviation. Surgery need?

Sinusitis: Surgery is sometimes needed... See a rhinologist (an ENT sub-specialist) to sort out your options. In my practice around 15% of patients with your symptoms ultimately require surgery. Allergy, gerd, aspirin, sub-optimal medical treatment can all be to blame. If significant issues are not treated polyps can rapidly recur. I saw a patient who had undergone 63 surgeries for polyps - aspirin! ...Read more

Have to be there!: Lumps on the scalp are often sabaceous cysts: they grow from blocked glands that produce oil or sweat. They are problematic when they bother the person -or when they become infected. These can be removed by a doctor. Soft lumps may be lipomas: fatty growths. I would encourage you not to squeeze or otherwise try to remove these on your own, though. Have your wife's doctor evaluate her. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

37.5 isn't necessarily abnormal. If the nausea was 3 to 4 months ago and gone, with all tests negative there's not a clear direction to go with this. ONGOING nausea can have many causes outside of the gut. Medicine effects, ear or brain abnormalities, post-nasal drip, to name merely a few. ...Read more
