Nasal Polyps : Causes, Symptoms and When to see a doctor

Nasal Polyp

Nasal polyps are soft and painless growths in your nasal passages. They are non-cancerous. They hang down like teardrops. They get associated with inflammation and asthma, periodic infection, allergies, drug sensitivity, and certain immune disorders.

Small nasal polyps may not cause symptoms. Enormous growths or groups of nasal polyps might block your nasal passages, and affect breathing, and smelling power.

Nasal polyps can affect anybody, but in most cases, adults get affected. Medications can often shrink or eradicate nasal polyps, but the ultimate option is surgery to remove them. Sometimes even after successful treatment, nasal polyps may return.


Polyps develop due to the mucous membranes lining the nose or sinuses changing. The membranes become outraged for a long period of time or become enraged over and over again. The inflammation features swelling, redness, and fluid buildup.


Nasal polyps create irritation, discomfort, and swelling of your nasal passage lining and sinuses that last more than 12 weeks.
