Frequently Asked Questions
Who gets vocal nodules?
Children or adults who abuse their voice by using a loud and high pitch voice while singing, screaming or shouting.
Do vocal nodules go away by themselves?
Nodules can heal if they have not been present for a long period of time and if the individual uses a vocal hygiene and rehabilitation approach. This method is often effective in helping to avoid vocal cord surgery.
Can smoking cause voice disorders?
Yes. Chronic hoarseness is common among smokers, and 75 percent of all patients who have had laryngeal cancer are heavy long-term smokers.
Can indigestion cause voice disorders?
Yes, some people with chronic gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD) have recurrent hoarseness that may damage the vocal tissues if gone undetected and untreated.
