Often they cause problems, especially in children as they grow longer than usual, either naturally or by repeated infections of the airways. The main symptoms that cause sick vegetations are open-mouth breathing, snoring, dry mouth, bad breath, stuffy and runny nose, ear infections or obstructive sleep apnea, among others. This condition can be treated with antibiotics to address vegetations infection, tonsils and sinuses, although the most used option is the removal of the glands along with the tonsils. ...
Audiometry is a test to assess hearing in each ear in order to determine whether a person hears well. The human ear can hear sounds with frequencies Audiometry is a test to assess hearing in each ear in order to determine whether a person hears well. The human ear can hear sounds with frequencies between 20 and 20,000 hertz. The test is divided into tonal and verbal audiometry. Audiometry in the air and bone conduction, in both cases involves the exploration of both ears separately, with the patient inside a soundproof booth and sealed evaluated. In the air audiometry, the individual should be placed headphones and then, the specialist plays a series of sounds high to low volume until they are inaudible. The last perceived sound determines the hearing threshold, that is to say, to what intensity is able to hear the patient at a given frequency. The inspection of bone conduction, a vibrator behind the patient's ear in the mastoid, through which receives the sound is placed. Speech audiometry is also performed with the patient in a booth and headphones, but instead of words emit sounds at different volume, which must be repeated exactly. The test takes about twenty minutes and the results are shown in a graph (audiogram). Comparison of the data obtained in the air and bone scans can know which part of the hearing aid causes hearing impairment (deafness) and what is the extent of the loss. ...
Tumors in the nose are a disease characterized by the presence and development of cancer cells in the sinuses or nasal cavity.

The dysphonia is a disorder characterized by an alteration of the timbre of the voice, which can be due to various organic or functional causes of the larynx and vocal cords. When it occurs in children, can come from neurological disorders, malformations of the larynx, laryngeal papillomas caused by viral infections, or overly strain your voice. The latter is the most common cause that causes dysphonia in adults, and that untreated hyperfunction voice can produce other pathologies such as nodules or polyps on the vocal cords. In addition, other factors that can trigger dysphonia:grastroesofagico reflux, smoking, infections such as laryngitis or tuberculosis, neurological disorders or tumors of the larynx. Both children and adults, chronic afonia requires a medical exam to diagnose any disorder that lengthen more than two weeks, both to rule out any serious injury to prevent dysphonia become a chronic afonia and resulting in a total loss of voice. In dysphonia force generated by voice or by infections and viruses, rest and anti-inflammatory will be required, depending on the case, therapy with a speech therapist to teach the patient to use the voice well and rehabilitate. ...
Hearing loss is a decrease in hearing reversible or permanently, depending on the case. It can also affect only one ear or both, in this case as a bilateral hearing loss. Besides, hearing loss may be partial or total: mild hearing loss in the patient loses some forty decibels capacity at best, while in the most serious cases decreased more than ninety decibels. Here, the hearing loss can be classified depending on the amount of hearing loss, the location of the lesion, its origin and if also affects speech. In the case of children, if the deficiency is not detected early can cause problems in language development. The causes of hearing loss can be many: congenital diseases, infections, hole in the eardrum, wax buildup, pressure changes, constant exposure to loud noise or trauma such as skull fractures or explosions. The person affected by this disorder may have the following symptoms: difficulty hearing a conversation or television, pressure or ringing in the ears, fatigue and dizziness. Hearing loss can be cured with medicine or surgery, depending on the case. In addition, you may also place the patient a device to improve their hearing. ...
Otitis media is an inflammation of the ear spaces and, depending on the duration of the disease, is classified into different types: acute, between 1 to 3 weeks; subacute, between 3 to 12 weeks; and chronic when it lasts more than 12 weeks. If the ear infection progresses, the liquid may have otitis (otitis media with effusion and be called) that can contain liquid like water (serous), mucous or pus.

The most common symptoms of otitis include: earache, fever, irritability, drainage, dizziness and, rarely, facial paralysis. In these cases, antibiotic treatment is sufficient to cure ear infections, although sometimes accompanied by nasal decongestants and mucolytics. In patients with chronic otitis, the most obvious symptom is hearing loss and its treatment will be determined accordingly. ...
Pharynx cancer is a disease characterized by the presence of malignant tumor cells in the throat. This condition is classified as nasopharynx, when it affects the upper part of the throat behind the nose; oropharynx, when located in the middle part of the throat; and hypopharynx, when the cancer is at the bottom of the pharynx. The symptoms of pharyngeal tumors depends on their location and size, but all can cause a lump in the neck. The tumor develops in four stages, from small to large, starting without metastasis and tissue around the pharynx and lymph nodes then spread. Treatment also varies by type of cancer: if located in the nasopharynx, chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions are recommended; for cancers of the oropharynx and hypopharynx, the patient will undergo an intervention if the tumor is small; Neck packages will be removed with surgery, which will be accompanied by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and removal of the tumor may involve the removal of all or part of the vocal cords. ...

The Vertigo is a feeling of imbalance arising from the structures of balance located in the inner ear (vestibular system) or connections of the structures of balance in the brain. When a sudden movement or a rapid change of the position of the head occur, can result in such connections balance problems, but do not usually last long. Among the symptoms they produce vertigo, the most common is dizziness. Anyway, dizziness can also be caused by diseases or disorders such as arrhythmia, insufficient production of blood in the heart, or the decrease in blood volume causes an inadequate flow of blood to the heart muscle. ...
