Ear, Nose & Throat

ENT deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat and related structures of the head and neck. Patients seek treatment from an ENT doctor for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, base of the skull, and for the surgical management of cancers and benign tumors of the head and neck.

Overview

If you have chronic ear, nose, or throat problems, it is advisable to not only see a primary care physician, but to also include an ENT specialist in the management of your disorder. An ENTspecialist is also known as an otolaryngologist. The difficulty to pronounce the word is why the abbreviation Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) was used to describe the role of these doctors. 

What does an ENT specialist do?

  • An ENT specialist can treat ear conditions such as tinnitus, infections as well as congenital disorders.
  • They also aid with treating chronic sinusitis and managing the nasal area due to allergies.
  • Conditions affecting the throat such as a swollen/sore throat causing difficulties in speech, digestion and swallowing.
  • ENT specialists can perform reconstructive surgery on the head, face, and neck. 
  • Snoring treatments and sleep apnea can also be treated 

What to expect on the first visit to an ENT specialist

  • Paperwork - Filling up patient forms and the insurance information is a necessary evil one will have to go through
  • Medication - Before coming to the clinic, do write a list of the existing medication you are currently using including the prescription
  • If needed, a simple speculum may be used to get a better view of the inside of the nasal passages. Rest assured, it should not cause discomfort and is not painful.

After a tonsillectomy, the main issues are usually to do with pain and rarely bleeding due to secondary infection of the tonsillectomy area. My patients are usually seen 1 week and then about a mth postop by which time the vast majority are actually fully recovered. After that, th...

From the picture provided, the lump appears to be on a part of your throat called oropharynx. The smooth appearance of the lump suggests that this may be a retention cyst (collection of mucous or saliva under the lining of the throat) or growths from deeper structures includ...

The inner part of your cheek in your mouth is called the buccal region. There are many possible lumps that can arise from that region. However, given that the lump is mobile, it is likely the lump is deep to the lining of the inner cheek (buccal mucosa). Possible differential d...

It is certainly possible for tonsil tissues to grow back especially if it was not removed completely (depending on whether a tonsillectomy - complete removal of the tonsil or tonsillotomy - partial or near complete removal of the tonsil was performed). Regrowths of tonsillar tissu...

The feeling of a lump in the throat is a symptom medically known as a globus sensation. This is often a symptom encountered in patients with: 1. Postnasal drip Postnasal drip refers to mucous flowing down the throat from your nose and sinuses. As the voice box is a very se...

A lump in throat sensation isn’t “normal” and should be thoroughly checked out with a nasal endoscopy examination. It sounds like you may already have had this done in the past if you have been told about an “inward facing epiglottis”. We do see many...

Most of the lumps I have removed from tonsils have returned on excision biopsy as fibrous or chronically inflamed tonsillar tissue. Occasionally, it turns out to be viral warts. These are not dangerous lumps. However, as your tonsil lump has been growing in size, and is also on...

Thank you for your question. A lump close to your ear, near your jaw may be arise from the following structures: 1. Parotid gland - The parotid gland is the largest salivary gland and it lies just in front of and under your ear. Hence, a growth (tumour) from this gland may pr...

Dear Sir, I suspect that everyone has experienced what you are experiencing and have probably asked the same question as you have at some stage in their life. Fever usually indicates that there is an infection. Thick phlegm is usually made up of mucus and inflammatory exu...
