Not to worry


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".

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!!!

Chronic sinusiitis


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

What To Ask Your Doc

To evaluate the sinuses, limited sinus CAT scans are best; don't waste time/radiation with x-ray.

Allergy testing


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.

Antral cyst


It is a common condition related to Allergic Rhinitis. In general, no surgical treatment is needed unless the cyst are very large and obstructing the outflow tract of the sinus. The enlarged inferior turbinate is a result of allergy. It can be treated with medication or surgery.

Possibly


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.

Warm air


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

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