Common Symptoms an ENT Treats
When a general practitioner cannot resolve or identify your ear, nose or throat-related issue, they will typically refer you to an otolaryngologist.
- Frequent hoarseness or sore throat
- Lump or swelling in neck
- Snoring and/or stop breathing while sleeping
- Repeat sinus infections
- Seasonal nasal symptoms
- Facial pain or pressure
- Sinus headaches
- Sudden hearing loss
If you experience one or more of these questions, it might be time to see an ENT.
