Sinusitis and nasal polyps can be tricky to diagnose on your own. Nasal polyps are not sensitive to touch, and many people misattribute the following common symptoms of nasal polyps to another disorder.
Additionally, some people complain of their nasal polyps bleeding. If you believe you may have nasal polyps, test your symptoms by taking our sinus quiz.
What is the treatment of choice for nasal polyps? No matter the nasal polyps treatment, the end goal of the diagnosis and treatment of nasal polyps is to remove the polyps via surgery or use medication so they shrink in size. For medication, nasal, oral, and injectable corticosteroids are often used.
That said, nasal polyp removal is typically needed so the patient can better address the underlying sinus problem that’s causing the chronic inflammation. The removal can usually be done using outpatient endoscopic surgery.
After surgery, a doctor may recommend balloon sinuplasty to expand the sinus passageways, especially if the patient has both sinusitis and polyps. Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure that lasts less than 30 minutes and requires little to no recovery time.
