Vocal cord nodules, though small in size, can have a big impact on your voice and overall well-being. These benign growths, often caused by vocal strain or overuse, can lead to hoarseness, vocal fatigue, and difficulty speaking or singing. With advancements in medical technology and vocal therapy techniques, individuals suffering from vocal cord nodules have access to effective treatment options. At NJ ENT, our team of experienced Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialists is committed to providing informative and personalized care for individuals dealing with vocal cord nodules.

Vocal Cord Nodules Causes

Some of the most common vocal cord nodule causes are voice misuse and overuse. This can occur due to a variety of reasons, from shouting to singing with improper technique. Other causes also strain or irritate the vocal cords. Chronic coughing, smoking, and exposure to irritants such as dust irritate the vocal cords, raising the risk of vocal cord nodules. Intubation during surgery also increases your risk of the development of nodules.

Vocal Cord Nodules Symptoms

Vocal cord nodules symptoms often include vocal and throat changes and difficulties. These are some of the most notable symptoms:

– Pain, discomfort, and difficulty swallowing

– Decreased vocal range

– Hoarseness and throat clearing

– Difficulty projecting your voice

– Voice cracks and unintentional pitch changes

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
