The high end flexible, distal chip scopes (kaypentax) give excellent images and are better tolerated than a rigid exam because they are done through the nose and not through the mouth (more gag). If you are asking these types of questions, you probably should see an ENT who specializes in voice - a laryngologist. ...Read more

A speech therapist could be helpful in determining if that is your sons cause. ...Read more

Anything that effects the cords or airflow through them can cause hoarseness. If you abuse your voice by screaming you can get swellings on the edges, if you have reflux the cords can swell.
