What does mild polypoid mucosal thickening in the inferior lateral right maxillary sinus mean?

Not much!: Unless you have some symptoms due to this sinus change(nasal discharge or sinus problems(Why did you get the sinus checked...tell the complete story), it can be ignored. If you are still concerned it can be rechecked in 3-6 months again but only if you have some symptoms pointing to your Nasal/paranasal sinuses ...Read more

Sphenoid/paranasal/maxillary sinus-mild inflammatory mucosal thickening. Poly in maxillry sinus.  What does it mean?  On biaxin for 14 days.

Sinusitis: What it means is that you have sinus inflammation. It sounds as if you have had a cat scan. My personal feeling is that biaxin is not my drug of choice. If you are asymptomatic, steroids might help to resolve the inflammation which is your immune system trying to cure the virus or allergen that might be causing the sinusitis. If you are asymptomatic, you do not need treatment. ...Read more

Hello Dr, I had nosal dripping, my MRI shows "Right Maxillary sinus mucosal thickening" & "deviation of nasal septum to right" what does this mean?

Dr. Lois Freisleben-Cook
Board Certified, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics

Sinusitis: You have thickening of the right maxillary sinus due to inflammation, likely infection in the sinus. Your nasal septum is the part that divides the two sides of your nose. When deviated it can cause excessive mucosal thickening and difficulty breathing, especially at night. I recommend you use Neil Med Sinus rinse as directed twice a day and consult an ENT specialist. ...Read more

Maybe: People with chronic sinusitis often have a persisting cough as one of their main, or only, symptoms. The mucosal thickening of the maxillary sinus is often indicative of chronic sinusitis. The hypo plastic frontal sinus just didn't develop fully and likely has nothing to do with your cough. I would recommend consultation with ENT physician. Medications and further imaging may be necessary. ...Read more

Please translate: "mucous retention cyst in right maxillary sinus. Bulbous mucosal thickening of left inferior turbinate is noted. Mucosal retention cyst is also noted within left aspect of nasopharynx."

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. ...Read more

Sinus CT: Concha bullosa are common anatomic variants of bones in the nasal cavity. When they are large, they can obstruct the sinus drainage pathway and predispose to sinusitis. 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
