An ear, nose, and throat doctor (ENT) specializes in everything having to do with those parts of the body. They’re also called otolaryngologists.
ENTs deal with anything that has to do with the head, neck, and ears in adults and children, including:
- The adenoids and tonsils
- The thyroid
- The sinuses
- The larynx
- The mouth
- The throat
- Ear tubes
- Ear surgeries
- Cancers of the head, neck, and throat
- Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery on the head and neck
What is the importance of ENT Videos?
It is often seen that patients collect information about their issues through the internet which results in lethal outcomes since the information has no basis whatsoever. Providing health, disease, or any medical treatment-related information is the doctor’s responsibility to ensure that the patient understands what the procedure is for and the patient agrees to it. The hindrance of providing clear information can easily be solved via high-quality Videos and Animations which acts as a common bridge between a doctor and their patients. It is proven that visuals are a more efficient way to convey health or disease-related information to a practitioner to their patients.
While consultation, it is often seen that the ENT doctor and the patient tend to be not on the same page, meaning the information that the ENT doctor provides is often misunderstood by the patients which creates a knowledge barrier between the both.
Good communication with an ENT doctor makes it more understandable for patients to benefit from their treatment and helps to ensure the best-suited treatment for them which can be done by consulting via ENT videos.
You may want to see an ENT doctor if you have:
Long-term (chronic) throat, ear, or sinus issues
Ear infections are one of the most common reasons why parents take kids to the doctor. ENTs usually treat them with antibiotics, but if the infections keep coming back, they may recommend surgery.
Tonsillitis is an infection of the tonsils. Again, doctors often treat it with antibiotics, but if it persists, they may recommend that you get your tonsils taken out.
Sinus problems that last more than 4 months are called chronic sinusitis. ENTs can help get to the bottom of the issue and treat the underlying problem.
Hearing loss is normal as you age. But sudden hearing problems can be a sign of something more serious. Either way, an otolaryngologist will be able to figure out what’s going on and help you get any treatments you need to hear better. If you need hearing aids, your ENT may send you to an audiologist to get fitted for them.
A lump in your neck
A lump in the neck that lasts more than 2 weeks could be a sign of mouth, throat, thyroid, or blood cancer. Cancers that start in these areas often spread to the lymph nodes in your throat first.
A lump is different from swollen lymph nodes, which can also be a sign of a serious illness but often happen due to common conditions like strep throat or an ear infection.
A child who is a heavy snorer
Snoring is common in adults but unusual in children. It may not be a sign of a serious problem, but it’s best to talk to your pediatrician about whether they recommend seeing an ENT. It may be a sign of sleep apnea, which can manifest with bedwetting or behavioral or academic problems from lack of sleep.
