Polyps in the nose, medically known as nasal polyps. The main manifestations of nasal polyps are that the nose is not ventilated, smells no smell, and the speech has a nasal sound. So, how are nasal polyps caused?
How are nasal polyps caused?
Nasal polyps are formed when the mucous membranes in the nasal cavity become swollen and lose their normal function. After a cold, the nose is not ventilated, which is the result of swelling of the mucous membranes in the nasal cavity. Oral or topical intranasal drugs are used, and after the swelling of the mucous membranes in the cavity subsides, the nose will be ventilated again. However, the repeated swelling of the mucous membrane in the nasal cavity will lose its elasticity like a balloon filled with water for a long time and cannot recover, resulting in the formation of nasal polyps.
Nasal polyps are formed due to the gradual sagging of the extremely edema of the nasal cavity and sinus mucosa under the action of gravity. Most of them think that chronic infection and allergy are the causes of nasal polyps. In recent years, it has been found that the cause of nasal polyps is related to various factors, such as genetic factors, immune deficiency, ciliary dysfunction, Young syndrome, aspirin intolerance, endogenous asthma and other systemic diseases can cause nasal polyps. There are many possible causes or a combination of factors.
The cause of nasal polyps is mainly related to inflammatory stimulation. Under the stimulation of allergic rhinitis, extreme congestion and edema of the nasal cavity and sinus mucosa occur, which expands the tissue space and causes nasal polyps. Nasal polyps caused by inflammatory stimulation are mostly due to the inflammatory secretions of chronic sinusitis, which stimulate the mucosa of the sinus openings such as the middle meatus for a long time, causing inflammatory changes to gradually form nasal polyps. Early and timely treatment of nasal polyps, congestion and edema can be completely disappeared.
