Throat Cancer and HPV

7/7/20 in Blog Posts

Over the past century, doctors have regarded cancer of the oropharynx (part of the throat) as a disease primarily of smokers and drinkers. These traditional twin risks of oropharyngeal cancer have now been eclipsed by a new predator—HPV—and a new generation of victims is now at risk. Fortunately, a new viral test and a vaccine may limit those risks.

First-aid for Sleep Apnea and Snoring

6/15/20 in Blog Posts

If you have been in lock-down with a snorer or snore yourself, then you already know that snoring is not a laughing matter.  Snoring is not only a major problem for home life, but for many it is a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a dangerous condition. If OSA is severe enough, it can greatly increase one’s risk for dementia, stroke, heart attack and even cancer. The good news is that the situation is not hopeless, with help readily available. Snoring can be checked and tracked using phone apps such as SnoreLab and a sleep apnea test can be comfortably done at home using a device such as the WatchPAT,  provided from our office.

Why You Should Not Delay Medical Care for your ENT and Allergy Issues

6/10/20 in Blog Posts

Patients are still having acute asthma attacks, rashes, ear infections and sinus pain and problems smelling. Your allergist and immunologists are available for asthma treatments. Your difficulty smelling may have started from a COVID infection many weeks ago, maybe even an asymptomatic one, but if it continues to persist this could actually be caused by nasal polyps, which need to be diagnosed and treated.  A persistent sinus infection that is not properly treated can continue to get worse, and you need a physical exam to actually determine whether your sinus symptoms are a bacterial infection, possibly a viral infection, or just allergies.

Hearing Loss & Face Masks

6/10/20 in Blog Posts

In the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic communication may be more important than ever. The combination of social distancing and quarantine has left many people feeling isolated. For those with hearing loss, that isolation may be amplified.

Sinus Infection Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

5/18/20 in Blog Posts

The sinuses are air filled spaces in the bones that make up our skull that our connected to our nasal passages. They have similar lining to the rest of the nose. They have several functions, including circulating the air that we breathe in through our nose, moistening the air, and keeping our skulls lighter for our spine. The sinuses have outflow channels, or tracts, that allows them to move circulate mucus into the nose. When their outflow tract gets blocked it leads to sinus pain. Once blocked, it allows bacteria to grow into the sinuses and progresses to bacterial sinusitis.

Considering recent events, it is more important than ever to be diligent in the cleaning of our hearing aids and ensure we are taking the proper precautions before putting our devices directly into our ears.

Social Distancing and its Consequences: Not a New Problem for Millions

3/23/20 in Blog Posts

Amid the constant news cycle reporting data on the novel Coronavirus and talks of “flattening the curve”, the prevailing advice from experts is to socially distance ourselves (or, to put it simply, stay away from others).  While this technique is essential for decreasing the spread of diseases, some have warned of possible (though necessary) consequences - including the negative impact that a decrease in social interaction can have on our physical and mental well-being. While this topic is being thrust into the spotlight due to current events, the issue of social distancing is not a new one for many people in the United States.
