When is a Nodule not a Nodule?

When is a Nodule not a Nodule?

Occasionally the vocal folds develop “nodular” swelling as a result of other conditions, such as vocal fold cysts or scars. These conditions do involve tethering of the epithelial vocal fold cover and do not resolve completely with conservative treatment such as rest and voice therapy. They will require more complex surgery to resolve them. They need careful assessment in a voice clinic to differentiate them from simple vocal nodules.
