Nasal polyps, which hang down like teardrops or grapes on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses, are soft, painless, noncancerous growths that are brought on by chronic inflammation brought on by immune disorders, allergies, recurrent infections, asthma, and other conditions.

Nasal polyps can affect anyone, but they’re more common in adults, and smaller growths or groups of them may not cause symptoms, but larger growths or groups can block your nasal passages or result in breathing difficulties, a loss of sense of smell, and frequent infections.

Causes–Because the inflammation occurs in the fluid-producing lining (mucous membrane) of your nose and sinuses, it’s not clear why some people develop chronic inflammation or why ongoing inflammation triggers polyp formation in some people but not in others. There is some evidence that people who develop polyps have a different immune system response and different chemical markers in their mucous membranes than do those who don’t.

Nasal polyps may develop anywhere in your sinuses or nasal passages, but they most frequently do so in an area where sinuses near your eyes, nose, and cheekbones all drain through winding passages into your nose (ostiomeatal complex). Nasal polyps may develop at any age, but they’re most common in young and middle-aged adults.

Symptoms— Chronic sinusitis, also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, is an inflammation of the lining of your nasal passages and sinuses that lasts longer than 12 weeks. It’s possible, and even slightly more likely, to have chronic sinusitis without nasal polyps.

Multiple growths or a large polyp may block your sinuses and nasal passages, but since nasal polyps themselves are soft and asymptomatic, you might not even be aware that you have them if they are small.

Nasal polyps and chronic sinusitis are common signs and symptoms of the following:

· A runny nose

· Persistent stuffiness

· Postnasal drip

Reduced or absent olfactory perception

Taste sensitivity loss

· Facial pain or headache

Upper teeth discomfort

A feeling of pressure across your face and forehead

· Snoring

Risk factors–Nasal polyps are frequently linked to the following conditions:

·Asthma,a condition that results in widespread airway swelling and inflammation

·Aspirin sensitivitymay increase the likelihood of nasal polyps in some people

·Allergic fungal sinusitis,a fungus allergy in the air

·Cystic fibrosis,a hereditary condition that causes the nasal and sinus membranes to secrete thick mucus and other abnormally thick, sticky fluids

·Churg-Strauss syndrome,an uncommon illness that results in blood vessel inflammation

There is some evidence that certain genetic variations linked to immune system function increase your risk of developing nasal polyps, but your family history may also be a factor.

Complications–Due to their ability to obstruct normal airflow and fluid drainage as well as the chronic inflammation that underlies their development, nasal polyps can result in a number of complications, including the following:

·Obstructive sleep apnea.You stop breathing frequently while you sleep if you have this potentially dangerous condition.

·Asthma flare-ups.Asthma can be made worse by persistent rhinosinusitis.

·Sinus infections.You may be more vulnerable to chronic or recurrent sinus infections if you have nasal polyps.
