Sinus Node Syndrome
SSS: The specific causes of sick sinus syndrome (SSS) actually vary. Some conditions will cause SSS and a dilated ventricle and/or progress to heart failure. In that case, the slow heart rate would be contributed to the underlying condition, rather than the SSS. See a cardiologist for full evaluation, discussion of treatments, and help with long-term planning. ...Read more

Not an option: Recurrent sinusitis is common, mostly viral in origin and not an indication for surgery. Antibiotics won't help. CT scans are abnormal in 90% of patients with true chronic sinusitis. Evidence suggests that nasal lavage can help reduce symptoms of acute sinusitis. Consult with your physician to see if an allergy to dust mites, pollen or other allergy is contributing to your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

What's the difference between a maxillary sinus cysts (2.5 cm) and a possible (2.5cm) sinus polyp?
The difference is: A "maxillary cyst" likely refers to a maxillary retention cyst arising. Domeshape, from the floor of the maxillary sinus. Benign, asymptomatic, usually self limited, requiring not treatment. A "sinus polyp" is likely related to nasal polyps. Usually the "sinus polyp" is accompanied by other polyps of the nose or ethmoid sinuses. Nasal polyps include nasal congestion, sinusitis, decreased smell. ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
Preauricular Sinus: By "preauricular sinus", i presume that means you have a small hole or pit in front of your ear with a draining opening or a swelling around the opening. This is not a dangerous condition, but can be associated with occasional swelling, drainge, and occasionally, infection. The surgery to remove the sinus is usually very simple, depending upon how long the sinus tract is. See an ENT doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This condition is typically not caused by an anatomical problem but rather a physiological one. ...Read more
