Treatment for Voice Hoarseness in Wesley Chapel, FL
If you’ve been experiencing persistent voice hoarseness, turn to Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Our practice is led by Dr. Brett Scotch, a board-certified otolaryngologist with ample experience treating patients with voice hoarseness and other uncomfortable throat problems.
Voice hoarseness is a symptom, not a condition. In most cases, it is caused by laryngitis – the swelling of the vocal cords as a result of voice strain or a viral or bacterial infection. A hoarse voice may also develop from:
- Non-cancerous vocal cord lesions
- Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
- Vocal hemorrhages
- Lifestyle factors like smoking, excessive alcohol use, and voice misuse
As a patient at Scotch Institute of ENT in Wesley Chapel, FL, you can be assured that your voice hoarseness will be carefully evaluated by Dr. Scotch, who will take the time to determine the exact cause of the problem and design an individualized treatment plan. In the likely event that laryngitis is to blame for your hoarse voice, Dr. Scotch may suggest medications, self-care measures, and other therapies to help relieve symptoms and reduce inflammation in the vocal cords as quickly as possible.
