My husband suffering from crash cough from cold, and hid vocal sound was affected by cold, so what can I do for him? His age is 33.

Laryngitis: Treatment for viral laryngitis is supportive and staying well hydrated, breathing humidified air, taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for pain control and being patient is necessary to allow time for the vocal cords to rest and recover.

Had ultra-sound been used in cancer treatments?

Had ultra-sound been used in cancer treatments?

Limited therapy: One of latest treatments to show promise in treating prostate and other cancers is high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).This involves use of high frequency sound waves specifically targeted at cancer cells. HIFU will not pass through bone or air, meaning it will not be effective against some forms of cancer. HIFU only appears to be effective against single tumors and not widespread disease. ...Read more

I get headache if I see tv or listen to music for more than an hour or two. It is more if sound is loud. Is there any thing to prevent it?

Turn down volume: If the problem is loud noise then turn down the volume. If there is someone in the house with poor hearing who requires the volume up then earplugs for you or hearing aid for them is your best bet. If the problem is normal noise causing a headache you should see a doctor. This could be a sign of ear abnormalities, brain tumors, certain types of headaches or other medical conditions. ...Read more

Is it possible to have had a vocal hemorage with no effect on the sound, pitch, tone or quality of my voice? And would it cause any weird sensations?

Is it possible to have had a vocal hemorage with no effect on the sound, pitch, tone or quality of my voice? And would it cause any weird sensations?

Just hoarseness...: The hoarseness caused by a vocal cord hemorrhage usually develops over a very short period of time, and usually occurs as a result of an event that required strong use of the voice such as a musical performance or talking loudly. There is usually no pain with a vocal cord hemorrhage, so hoarseness is often the one symptom. ...Read more

More common causes would be reflux laryngitis or postnasal drip from allergies. See an ENT for fiberoptic laryngoscopy or video stroboscopy to evaluate. ...Read more

Try to not point it out and give them plenty of time to speak and it usually goes away on it's own.
