Treatment is Key! Finding the right ENT specialist is not always an easy task. You want to find a specialist that has experience in treating sinus and nasal problems.
Here are some reasons your sinus plumbing is backed-up
- Deviated Septum
The nasal septum is the wall dividing the nasal cavity into two halves. A deviated septum occurs when the septum is shifted away from the midline.
- Nasal Polyps
Nasal polyps are shaped like teardrops and form as outgrowths on the mucous membranes of the nose and often occurs at the site of edematous tissue.
The turbinates are three bony projections in the nasal passage. The turbinates increase the surface area in the nasal cavity, filter and warm the air that passes through it.
Tumors defined in simple terms are a swelling. When a tumor grows in the ostium (a small opening in the sinuses where drainage occurs), the sinuses become obstructed.
Inside the sinuses that reduce their ability to drain mucous which causes infection.
