Throat and Mouth

Voice

by Jared Wasserman, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Hoarseness is a very common complaint that usually resolves spontaneously over the course of days to weeks. Prolonged change in the voice can be caused by a more serious condition that requires further evaluation. Generally, any change in voice that lasts for two weeks or more should be evaluated by an Otolaryngologist or voice specialist. Commonly caused by self-limited infections, such as upper respiratory infections, other causes of hoarseness may be due to benign or cancerous growths, acid reflux, over-use or abuse of the voice, trauma, and neurological disorders.
