What is Otolaryngology?
A medical speciality focused on the ears, nose, and throat is called otorhinolaryngology ENT. Since experts get both medical and surgical training, it is sometimes known as otolaryngology head and neck surgery. Otolaryngologist is another name for an ENT, or ear, nose, and throat specialist.
Otolaryngologists diagnose, evaluate, and control problems affecting the neck, larynx (voice box), throat, mouth, and other tissues as well as the ears, nose, sinuses, and other respiratory tract issues. When you visit an otolaryngologist, he may prescribe some tests to evaluate your condition and determine suitable ENT treatments. Depending upon your symptoms the tests prescribed may include blood tests, a sleep study, or a swallow study. Your doctor may also suggest tests for allergies, balance, or hearing. Otolaryngologists also perform ENT surgery.
What are the Signs and Symptoms
of ENT Problems?
ENT problems are common and the symptoms are not too severe. For the most part, symptoms include allergic reactions like sneezing, runny nose, cough, and sore throat. Symptoms vary from patient to patient. In some cases, an infection may manifest in the ear, nose, or throat. The need for ENT surgery arises in case of blockages in the respiratory tract such as a nasal polyp or lump in the throat. You should visit an ENT specialist if you have difficulty in swallowing, loss of hearing, or consistent tickling in the nose.
Some typical symptoms that indicate the need for intervention include:
ENT problems are generally caused by bacteria. Symptoms may also be triggered by allergens like pollen and dust mites. Allergies can inflame and congest the nasal cavity, sinuses, throat, and eustachian tubes. Your ENT specialist may refer you to an allergist if he suspects an allergy to certain substances. Other more severe issues may be caused by tonsillitis – an inflammation of the tonsils in your throat. Bacteria can also infect your middle ear and cause pain and discomfort. Infections are treated using antibiotics.
Common Medical Tests to
Diagnose ENT Disease
ENT diseases and treatment depend upon the cause. To diagnose your cause, your otolaryngologist or ENT specialist will ask about your medical and family history, any known allergies, or history of reaction to certain medicines. He will ask about your symptoms and may recommend certain tests before arriving at a diagnosis.
Here’s a list of some common ENT diseases and the ENT tests used to screen for them:
