I have ear pressure bcz hyperpneumatised both frontal and maxillary sinuses.Mucosal polyp in both maxillary sinus, nasal septum deviation.Surgery need?

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.

I saw a patient who had undergone 63 surgeries for polyps - aspirin! ...Read more

Are adenoides in pits nasal space?

Are adenoides in pits nasal space?

Adenoids: Hello. Adenoids are lymph tissues that are in the back of the nasal cavity. They are very important for our immune system early in life. After we become 2-3 years of age, our immune development matures and we develop more lymph tissue throughout our airway, so adenoids are not as important for our immune system. It looks like you are being worked up appropriately for your condition. Good luck. ...Read more

Can nasarel nasal spray cause dental and sinus problems?

Probably not: Any over the counter nasal spray used for more than a few days may cause a condition called rhinitis medicamentosa.

Any nasal condition, whether allergic or non-allergic should be managed by an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Ct results1mild mucosal thickening involving the ethmoid air cells and small mucous retention in the left maxillary sinus.2small concha bullosa bilaterally without ostiomeatal stenosis. Please explain?

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

Headaches, nasal congestion, sinuses, facial numbness, vision problems.Did CT scan showed only mucosal thickening of bilateral sphenoid and ethmoid.

If your symptoms are not better i would see an ENT like me who specializes in nose/sinus surgery to discuss options. ...Read more

In rare and severe cases, I have seen such findings in certain other conditions such as sarcoidosis, lupus, or wegener's granulomatosis. See an ENT for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more
