Nasal polyps are common, fleshy, noncancerous, teardrop-shaped growths that form in the nose or sinuses. They are usually found around the area where the sinuses open into the nasal cavity. Matured polyps look like peeled grapes.
They are often linked to allergies or asthma. Small-size polyps are usually asymptomatic and usually don’t require any treatment. Large-size polyps can cause various symptoms include, stuffy or blocked nose, sneezing, postnasal drip, runny nose, facial pain, etc. Large polyps can block normal drainage from the sinuses. If too much mucus builds up in the sinuses, they can become infected.

Nasal polyps treatment option depends on the severity of the condition and the size of the polyps. Before any treatment, the patient has to undergo a thorough diagnosis to determine the treatment accordingly. A healthcare provider usually suggests nasal endoscopy, CT scans, allergy tests, blood tests, tissue cultures, etc, to determine the identify the best treatment option. Nasal polyp treatment generally focuses on reducing the size of polyps or eliminating them completely to provide the patient relief from associated breathing problems like sinusitis, asthma flare-up, etc. Generally, the first approach to treatment is medications. However, the patient may need surgical intervention if medical treatment does not work in shrinking the polyps.

Endoscopic surgery is the most preferred surgical treatment for nasal polyps. During endoscopic surgery, the surgeon inserts an endoscope (a small tube with a camera lens or magnifying glass) through the nasal passages and uses endoscopic instruments to remove the polyps and other nasal blockages. This improves airflow through the nasal and paranasal areas. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. Since no major cuts or incisions are performed during the surgery, the recovery process is usually very quick.
The other surgical procedure for the removal of nasal polyps is polypectomy. The surgery is usually performed if the polyps are very large or the other treatment options fail to treat the condition.
The surgery is performed under the influence of local or general anesthesia. A long, thin tube with a video camera is inserted into the patient’s nose and sinuses. Polyps are then cut out using micro-telescopes and surgical instruments. Sometimes, the surgeon may remove small pieces of bone from the nose to open up the nasal passageway. A doctor usually prescribes a corticosteroid nasal spray to help prevent recurrence. Sometimes doctor also recommends the use of saline rinse to help post-surgical healing.
The exact recovery time after nasal polyp treatment depends on the severity of the condition, the size of the polyps, associated health conditions, the type of treatment, etc. With medical management, patients start noticing obvious improvement in their symptoms within 1-2 weeks. However, most patients are advised to take medicines for 4-6 weeks to prevent a recurrence.
If endoscopic surgery is performed, the patient can start performing light activities and return to desk work within one week; however, exercising and strenuous activities have to be delayed until at least 2-3 weeks after the surgery. Complete recovery usually takes at least 4-6 weeks.

Before nasal polyps treatment, you must ask the following questions to your surgeon to have a better understanding of the treatment procedure and the risks and complications associated with it:
Nasal polyp surgery has a high success rate in providing symptomatic relief to the patient with a high quality of life.
Recurrence of nasal polyps can be avoided with proper care and treatment. However, most patients (around 80%) have reported recurrence of polyp formation a few years after the surgery.
Occasionally, if left untreated, nasal polyps can continue to grow and result in permanent damage to soft tissues near it such as the eye, brain, etc. Accumulation of bacteria & viruses due to the soft tissue growth may lead to sinus infection as well.
No, nasal polyps are benign growths causing nasal congestions, and while they grow continuously when not removed, they generally never turn malignant.
Most patients do not have any pain after the surgery, however they may experience discomfort, congestion, and spotty nose bleeds for a few days, which is generally managed through over-the-counter medications.
The main cause of nasal polyps is associated with chronic rhinosinusitis, which is inflammation of nasal passages and sinuses lasting 12 weeks or more. According to researchers, those affected may have normal immune responses and different chemical markers in their mucus membranes compared to those who do not develop nasal polyps.
Some common symptoms of nasal polyps are as follows:
Nasal polyps are usually not considered as harmful. However, polyps can interfere with the normal drainage and ventilation of your sinuses.
In some rare cases, nasal polyps can cause infection of the tissues around the brain and spinal cord.
Nasal polyps are a multifactorial inflammatory condition of the upper airways. Nasal polyps typically affect middle-aged and elderly patients, the average age at diagnosis is 40 to 60, and men are affected more commonly than women.
You should consult your healthcare provider and seek treatment help if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Common risk factors for nasal polyps are as follows:
Polyps can be associated with benign tumors and, less commonly, with cancerous tumors. Nasal polyps associated with tumors usually occur on one side of the nose, as opposed to polyps associated with a sinus infection, which usually occur on both sides of the nose.
If polyps are asymptomatic, then they usually don’t require any treatment. It’s possible for nasal polyps to shrink naturally and go away on their own.
Bright-colored vegetables and fruits such as berries, kiwi, pumpkin, papaya, sweet potatoes, and pineapple are all rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Pineapple also contains enzymes that break down the buildup on the sinuses and reduces inflammation.
