Can untreated polyps cause problems later?
Q: I am a 38 years old man having polyps in my nose and sinuses. I am having a related problem of headache too due to sinus for the last 10 years. If polyps stay for long, will they create any other problem?
A:Yes, if there are definite polyps in the nose, they would have to be surgically removed by endoscopic sinus surgery. If not, they can increase in size, and cause pressure on the eyes, even bulging of the eyes, pressure on the bone between nose and brain, ear, besides other symptoms you are having.
