Nose and sinus disorders afflict millions of people, causing pain, fatigue, headache, breathing difficulties and loss of smell, among other symptoms. In fact, sinusitis alone affects about 37 million people at least once each year, making it one of the most common illnesses in the United States.
A computed tomography (CT) scan of your sinuses also may be recommended, along with a culture of any fluids draining from the nose. Blood tests may be ordered depending on your other medical conditions.
In this procedure, a narrow tube fitted with a tiny camera (called an endoscope) is passed through both nostrils. For comfort, your nostrils will be treated with a topical anesthetic. The endoscope will help identify any swelling or blockage. Tissue samples will be taken of any abnormal growths.
Our professionals will run a number of non-invasive physical tests to determine the cause and relative treatment option for your unique condition.
Have you ever had a cold or allergy attack that wouldn’t go away? If so, there’s a good chance you actually had sinusitis. Experts estimate that 37 million people are afflicted with sinusitis each year, making it one of the most common health conditions in America. That number may be significantly higher, since the symptoms of bacterial sinusitis often mimic those of colds or allergies, and many sufferers never see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Nasal congestion, stuffiness, or obstruction to nasal breathing is one of man’s oldest and most common complaints. While it may be a mere nuisance to some persons, to others it is a source of considerable discomfort, and it detracts from the quality of their lives. Nasal obstructions is classified into four categories, recognizing that overlap exists between these categories.
The nose is an area of the body that contains many tiny blood vessels or arterioles that can break easily. In the United States, one of every seven people will develop a nosebleed some time in their lifetime. Nosebleeds can occur at any age but are most common in children aged 2-10 years and adults aged 50-80 years. Nosebleeds are divided into two types, depending on whether the bleeding is coming from the front or back of the nose.
