Nose & Sinuses

Nose and sinus issues can significantly impact quality of life, causing symptoms such as congestion, facial pain, headaches, and impaired breathing.

Metro ENT specialise in diagnosing and treating a wide range of nasal and sinus conditions, whether it’s chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, deviated septum, or other nasal and sinus disorders, we work closely with each patient to develop personalised treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and concerns.

Treatment options for nose and sinus issues at Metro ENT may include medical management with medications such as antibiotics, nasal corticosteroids, or saline irrigations to reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms. For more severe or persistent cases, minimally invasive procedures such as balloon sinuplasty or endoscopic sinus surgery may be recommended to improve sinus drainage and restore normal breathing.

Common nose & sinus issues

  • Chronic Sinusitis

    Inflammation of the sinus cavities lasting more than 12 weeks, often causing persistent nasal congestion, facial pain or pressure, and reduced sense of smell.

  • Nasal Polyps

    Noncancerous growths in the nasal passages or sinuses, often causing nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, and reduced sense of smell.

  • Deviated Septum

    A displacement of the nasal septum, the wall between the nostrils, which can lead to nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, and recurrent sinus infections.

  • Sinus Infections

    Acute or chronic bacterial or viral infections of the sinus cavities, resulting in symptoms such as facial pain, pressure, nasal discharge, and headache.

  • Allergic Rhinitis

    Inflammation of the nasal passages due to allergic reactions to airborne allergens, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, itching, nasal congestion, and runny nose.

  • Nasal Fractures

    Trauma or injury to the nose, causing nasal obstruction, deformity, and difficulty breathing.

  • Sinus Headaches

    Headaches caused by pressure and inflammation in the sinus cavities, often associated with sinus infections or chronic sinusitis.
