Sinus polyps are benign growths that may develop in the lining of the sinuses or nasal passages following sinusitis, allergies, asthma, and other upper respiratory issues. While the polyps themselves are not painful, their presence can lead to:
- Trouble breathing through the nose
- Congestion or a runny nose
- Facial pressure and headaches
- Reduced sense of smell and taste
- Pain in the top row of teeth
Sinus polyps share symptoms with many other upper respiratory conditions, so it’s important to receive an accurate diagnosis from an otolaryngologist before beginning treatment.
