Growth On Vocal Cord

The specialist will carefully examine the patient's larynx with a fiberoptic scope or mirror and may elect for a more detailed study of the vocal cord motion with an office-based examination called video stroboscopy. If a growth is noted on the vocal cord, then the physician will discuss treatment options that could include speech therapy, an office-based procedure or microlaryngoscopy, which is performed under general anesthesia.
