Treat hoarseness to prevent even bigger problems

Armony in health 1 December, 2017 0

Hoarseness happens when you have challenges producing sound when speaking.

According to the MedlinePlus webpage, this condition is most often caused by a problem in the vocal cords, which are located in the throat and are part of the larynx. While it also may be the symptom of a cold or sinus infection, it usually disappears on its own within a couple of weeks.

If the discomfort does not go away by then, the patient should visit a doctor to rule out other potential conditions, including laryngeal cancer. Additionally, if a person has difficulty breathing or swallowing or if hoarseness is accompanied by drooling, particularly in a small child, a specialist should be seen.
