Vocal cord nodules are benign growths on both vocal cords that are caused by vocal abuse.Over time, repeated abuse of the vocal cords results in soft, swollen spots on each vocal cord. These spots develop into harder, callous-like growths called nodules. The nodules will become larger and stiffer the longer the vocal abuse continues.The voice sounds rough with associated breathiness. Pitch and pitch range is restricted. Voice therapy is the preferred treatment option.
23 yr old Hari is into modelling and acting in entertainment industry, but his voice is husky and losing confidence in his profession. On examination of the larynx, I found he has singers or vocal nodules on both vocal cords. He will be fine with speech therapy.
