Nasal Polyps complications
back to top
Complications could include:
The nasal septum is a thin structure, separating the two sides of the nose. If it is not in the middle of the nose, then it is deviated.
A sinus infection causes the sinuses and nasal passages to become inflamed. Facial swelling is a common sign of this type of infection.
An airway obstruction is a blockage in the airway. It may partially or totally prevent air from getting into your lungs. Some airway obstructions are life-threatening emergencies. They require immediate medical attention to prevent death.
Nosebleeds are common and rarely indicate a serious medical problem. However, frequent nosebleeds, a bleed that lasts longer than 20 minutes or occurs after an injury may require medical attention.
