Dr. Steven Koos answered:

CT results: minor mucosal changes in the paranasal sinuses seen in the maxillary sinus regions with mucous retention cysts. Possible cause?

Not to worry

Tenderness_over_sinuses
I see a fair proportion of my patients demonstrating these in their sinuses as an incidental finding on CT scan. They very rarely require any sort of surgical intervention and should be differentiated from a mucocele (which are different. Allergies, sinusitis, mucosal irritation lead to these fluid filled "sacs".

I have ear pressure bcz Hyperpneumatised both frontal and maxillary sinuses.mucosal polyp in both maxillary sinus,nasal septum deviation.surgery need?

Sinusitis

Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
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!!!

Dr. Farhad Sigari answered:

Does maxillary sinusitis cause vertigo? Is vertigo ever caused by sinusitis of the maxillary sinuses?

Maybe

Dizziness
A bad sinus infection can inflammation of the upper airway which includes the eustachian tube. This will lead to inadequate opening of the eustachian tube which then cause negative pressure in the middle ear space, which can affect the inner ear and balance center, ultimately causing vertigo. Although this can happen, this is not a common presentation of sinusitis. An ENT evaluation will help.

Dr. Donald Cohen answered:

I have Thickening of maxillary sinuses, I have headaches(mostly in the back of my head) for 13 days. Are they related?

Possibly

Headaches
Thickened lining of the maxillary sinus could mean inadequate drainage of your sinuses. The increased pressure can cause headaches. You need to be evaluated by an ENT Doctor and possibly have a CT Scan done for a complete diagnosis.

MRI says I have mucoperiosteal thickiening in my maxillary sinuses. Having chronic pain on the left side of my face. Solutions? Have had 3 surgeries.

Facial pain

Mri
It seems unlikely that your sinuses are causing your facial pain, since you don't have acute sinusitis on the MRI. There are many causes of facial pain, some of which are very serious. Contact the Facial Pain Association for more information and help.

My paranasal sinuses test show:nasal septum is deviated, nasal turbinates are prominent and both maxillary sinuses shows mucosal thickening sinusitis?

Chronic sinusiitis

Maxilla
Actually we call this chronic rhinosinusitis with a deviated septum. If you haven't seen an allergist for testing then consider that. Treatment is initially with salt water washes twice daily followed by a nasal corticosteroid

1.acute bronchitis, 2.allergic rhino laryngitis,CT scan report:mild mucosal thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing

Upper_respiratory_infection
In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on CT scan. That's good news... you don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! If 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing.

What is maxillary sinuses and is there herbal treatment for this?

Warm air

Phytotherapy
The roll of the maxillary sinuses is to warm and humidify air and to lighten the skull. I believe if you are asking about a treatment, you are asking about sinusitis. Using saline spay in the nostrils may help

Is septoplasty required in case of mild DNS. I also have mild infection in bilateral maxillary sinuses. Doctor also suggested FESS.

If med Rx fails

Maxilla
If medical therapy with antibiotics, decongestants, steroids and hygiene (neti pot) fails to produce improvement, surgery may be a good option.

Dr. Seth M. Black answered:

I have two "small" sinus polyps of the each maxillary sinuses. When should I consider having surgery? What's the likelihood of recurrence?

When symptomatic

Maxilla
Generally, asymptomatic sinus polyps can be left alone. We treat them if they become chronically infected, cause pain or created blockage.
