Diagnosis begins treatment, but it is not only pharmacological-sometimes the patient also needs surgery, e.g. removal of one of the tonsils.

Thus, the laryngologist performs various physical examinations during the visit,

  • palpation of the salivary glands and lymph nodes in the head area;
  • examination of the nose using a speculum – the Doctor assesses the condition of the nasal septum, nasal Concha and nasal mucosa;
  • examination of the oral cavity and its vestibule, as well as the language of the tonsils, etc.;
  • examination of the ears with a speculum-the laryngologist pays special attention to the auricles, auditory tubes and the state of the eardrum;
  • examination of the larynx and nose using a mirror.

The laryngologist may also order additional tests if abnormalities are detected. They are usually:

  • laboratory tests;
  • swabs;
  • photo X-ray;
  • ultrasound examination;
  • computed tomography;
  • MRI;
  • biopsy of suspicious lesions.
