Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor in Austin, TX
Your voice is uniquely yours and affects everything you do. Make sure you protect it.
A number of different factors have to come together to create your speech, including body size and shape as well as the exact size and shape of your vocal cords. Your vocal cords are elastic muscle tissue located just above the windpipe (trachea) and stretched across the air passage to your lungs (voice box or larynx). As air passes over your vocal cords, the cords vibrate, creating sound.
Medical conditions such as allergies, gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD), tumors, and the wear and tear of your muscles over time can all wreak havoc on the vocal cords – as can the common cold or flu. But the board-certified ear, nose, and throat physicians at ENT & Allergy Center of Austin can carefully and expertly diagnose and treat health issues affecting your voice, including:
- Chronic cough
- Difficulty breathing, especially taking deep breaths
- Human papilloma virus (HPV)-caused growths
- Vocal cord cancer
