Voice Disorders Information – Vocal Nodules

What are Vocal Nodules? by Sara Harris (Specialist Speech and Language Therapist and Team member, The Voice Clinic, London) Vocal nodules develop as the result of trauma to the vocal folds. When the vocal folds collide violently swelling can develop around the site of the collision. A single episode of trauma usually recovers over several days of voice rest, but unfortunately, these episodes are often repeated so the swelling becomes more persistent and requires treatment. These swellings are often described as “soft nodules”. If soft nodules are ignored and allowed to progress, the persistent damage may begin to produce fibrous scar tissue. This makes the affected area stiffer and therefore less able to vibrate effectively. These are often referred...

Vocal Nodules – Signs & Symptoms

Initially after the trauma the voice may become “cloudy” (minimally husky) and less responsive over a certain pitch range, losing clarity and brightness. The voice is usually slow to warm up and may sound deeper, breathy and weak, particularly over the upper pitch range. Over time the speaking voice may become noticeably hoarse and breathy. It may also start to “cut out”, around certain notes, giving characteristic “voice breaks”. These are most obvious when the voice is used quietly.
