NOSE POLYPS DISEASE DEFINITION, PREVENTION, AND TREATMENT

Understanding Nose Polyps DiseaseNasal polyps are abnormalities in the surface membrane of the nose. Characteristics of soft masses stemmed, round or oval, grayish white with a smooth surface and rather clear.

The risk of developing a nasal polyp is increasing if you have asthma, allergic rhinitis, and sinus.

If not treated properly, nasal polyps can develop into obstructive sleep apnea or respiratory disturbance while sleeping. Also, nasal polyps can also cause sinuses to be more easily infected.

Also, the diagnosis can be made through X-rays, and CT scans to detect the presence of sinusitis.

NASAL POLYPS

Treatment of Disease Nose Polyps

Treatment of nasal polyps consists of drug therapy and surgery. Drug therapy is aimed at small polyps and can usually be treated in a short time.

In addition to drug administration, removal of polyps may also be used by surgery. Usually, surgery is aimed at large polyps and causes nose abnormalities.

Cause of Disease Nose Polyps

Until now, the main cause of nasal polyps is unknown. However, there is some evidence to suggest that nasal polyps tend to have different immune system responses than those without polyps.
Normal nasal polyps are formed at any age but are more common in adults.

Prevention of Disease Nose Polyps

Polyps can be prevented by:

  • Hands hygiene habit, meaning often wash hands and nose.
  • To clean the nose, use salt water (saline) in the form of a spray or nasal lavage.
  • Try to keep the air in the house damp.
  • Avoid nasal irritants, for example, allergens, dust, smoke (cigarettes, etc.), vapors from chemicals.
