HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR VOCAL CORD NODULES AND POLYPS

Vocal cord nodules  and polyps are small growths that develop on the vocal cords of some people.
The vocal cords are the folds of mucous membrane in the larynx. The superior pair are called the false, and the inferior pair are the true vocal cords. These thin, reed-like bands vibrate to make vocal sounds during speaking and are capable of producing a vast range of sounds. One end of each cord is attached to the front wall of the larynx. The opposite ends are connected to two tiny cartilages near the back wall of the larynx.
A vocal cord nodule is a small, inflammatory or fibrous growth that develops on the vocal cords of people who constantly strain their voices. These are also called screamer's nodule, singer's nodule and teacher's nodule. A vocal cord polyp is a small swelling  in the mucous membranes covering the vocal cords. As they grow, they take on a rounded shape. They may run the whole length of the vocal cords or be localized.
A nodule differs from a polyp in that it is a growth of the epithelium  that covers the mucous membrane, not of the mucous membrane itself. Thus, it has a structural resemblance to a corn on a toe or a callus on the hand. If one has vocal cord nodules, the voice will become breathy and hoarse.
Cause-People who use their voices a great deal, such as professional singers, teachers, auctioneers, lecturers, and members of the clergy, are prone to have nodules on their vocal cords. Like polyps, nodules may develop as a result of excessive use of the voice.
