These are mostly isolated lesions occur in any part of the vocal cords. These are mostly associated with bad vocal hygiene and gasroesophageal reflux. They cause long term voice hoarseness. 

Polyps are observed in people who work in noisy environments and increase their voice volumes suddenly. Cysts are located under the mucosa. Thay can be both congenital or acquired. 

Typical treatment of vocal cord polyps and cysts is microlaryngeal surgery. This is mostly performed under general anesthesia and through the mouth witout any insicion outside on skin.

My persistent symptoms 31 May, 2013 - 12:14

I am writing to you from St. John's, Newfoundland (Canada). I have a sinus problem started in Nov 2008 upon working for more than a month in a gas plant. I did not have sinus problems prior to this date.

At that time, I may have been exposed to airborne asbestos and other irritants. In the place where I lived at that time, the Winter is so harsh. Temperature during Winter is normally at least 25 Cecilius below zero.
