Frequently Asked Questions

Voice & Swallowing Problems FAQs

While not all voice and swallowing problems can be prevented, adopting healthy habits such as maintaining good vocal hygiene, avoiding excessive throat clearing or yelling, managing acid reflux, and staying hydrated can help minimize the risk of developing these issues. Regular check-ups with an ENT specialist can also help detect potential problems early on and facilitate prompt treatment.

Voice and swallowing problems can be caused by various factors such as vocal cord nodules, acid reflux, muscle tension dysphonia, neurological conditions, and structural abnormalities in the throat or esophagus.

Diagnosis of voice and swallowing problems typically involves a thorough evaluation by an ear, nose, and throat specialist, including a detailed medical history, physical examination, and specialized tests such as video stroboscopy, laryngoscopy, or swallowing studies.
