Vocal Cord Nodules

These typically occur in 1/3 frontal place of the vocal cords and mostly two cords are effected. They happen in people who use their voice badly and continuously. They are more common in young women and male children. 

Vocal cord nodules are one of the most common disease seen in singers. There are some nodules that do not disturb the voice and can be seen incidentally. But mostly they cause voice problems. Especially in high pitch tones they cause hoarseness. 

They are best treated with vocal hygiene and speech therapy. More than 80% of nodules disappear with these therapies. If not disappear they can be taken out by microlaryngeal surgery.

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.
