I was diagnosed with nasal polyps. What exactly do I have?
In patients suffering from chronic allergy rhinitis (or other underlying diseases) the upper layer of the nose wall (mucous membrane) can be filled up with mucous and create a nasal polyp. Rarely enough this polyps can hide more serious disease, but in the majority of cases are harmless. Nevertheless, without proper therapeutic intervations these polyps can become even larger and at the end they can obstruct the normal air flow in the nose.
