Just about everyone experiences a throat problem at one time or another. While this kind of issue is usually temporary, there are other instances where long-term damage can occur if the proper treatment is not provided. McKinney ENT Clinic has a great deal of experience handling a wide range of throat problems, providing an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
Identifying a Throat Issue
One of the easiest ways to tell if you have a throat problem is if your voice changes. While this may be nothing but an annoyance at first, over time this could lead to significant problems. If your change in voice is accompanied by shortness of breath, pain, or you notice a small amount of blood when you cough, then you need to visit McKinney ENT Clinic as soon as possible.
Treatments for Throat Problems
One of the most common throat issues we treat involves inflammation of the tonsils and adenoids. Your tonsils are a very important part of your body’s immune system, helping to capture viruses and bacteria to keep them from causing problems. The adenoids, which area located behind your nose and palate, can also become swollen. You may also experience chills, a fever, a headache, difficulty swallowing or other symptoms. If either your tonsils or adenoids are swollen, seek medical help as soon as possible.
