What is the treatment for nasal polyps?
Q: I have polyp in both of my nostrils . My doctor here has advised to go for the operation after CT scan. Please let me know if it is safe to go for operation and whether it can reappear again. What is the treatment if I do not want to o for operation. I am using Flexinose only when I have acute problem although doctor here told me that there is no harm even if I use it for long time.Please advise
A:The correct treatment for nasal polyps is surgery. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery is a fairly safe procedure. Polyps can recur but they are not malignant. Regarding your query about flixonase. You can use it for a long time till you decide to undergo surgery.
