Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Nasal Polyps
These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.
Question: Are nasal polyps always benign? Additionally, is there any harm in not having them surgically removed (this has been recommended by my ENT) right away? I'm considering waiting 6-9 months for a better scheduling time at work.
Answer: Almost always benign and waiting shouldn't be a problem. In the meantime, use daily nasal steroid spray to shrink them.
