Nasal Polyposis (Nasal polyps) are fleshy yellowish-brown or pink painless non-cancerous tumor medically known as benign found in the nasal passage hence the term “Nasal Polyps” – They vary in size and their growth has no direct effect on nearby tissues and does not spread to other organs in the human body.
Rapid growth is found around the wet layer of inflamed tissue often referred to as nasal mucous inside your both nostrils and sinuses, usually shaped in the form of teardrops or pear hanging on the nose lining, para-nasal, and ethmoid sinuses, also filling up the nasal cavity and the air-filled spaces behind the cheeks, eyes, and nose.
Nasal Polyps is actually a common occurrence as a study by Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology states that this overgrowth in the lining of the sinuses occurs in around 1 in 200 people, mostly by the age of 40 years.
Children under the age of 10 rarely show growth of nasal polyps except in the case of cystic fibrosis
Usually caused by prolonged nasal inflammation due to chronic respiratory infection such as asthma and other immune disorder, drug sensitivity or allergies
