Nose & Sinus - CMC

The nose and sinuses are part of the respiratory system and are responsible for filtering and warming the air we breathe. The sinuses are hollow spaces located within the bones of the face, while the nose is the primary organ responsible for smell and also helps to filter and humidify the air we breathe.

Some common conditions that can affect the nose and sinuses include:

  1. Sinusitis: This is a condition where the sinuses become inflamed and swollen, leading to symptoms such as facial pain, congestion, and nasal discharge.
  2. Allergies: Allergies can cause symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes.
  3. Deviated septum: A deviated septum is a condition where the nasal septum (the wall that separates the two nostrils) is crooked or off-center, which can lead to difficulty breathing.
  4. Nasal polyps: These are noncancerous growths that can develop in the nasal cavity or sinuses, causing symptoms such as congestion, runny nose, and loss of smell.

Treatment options for nose and sinus conditions may include medications, such as antibiotics, decongestants, or antihistamines, to alleviate symptoms. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct structural problems, such as a deviated septum or nasal polyps.
