Your ears, nose, and throat are located quite close to each other. Though they have distinct functions, they are interrelated and depend on each other for smooth functioning. While your ears and nose are referred to as sense organs, your throat also has an important function in your body.
The ears and nose provide you with the ability to hear, maintain a bodily balance, and smell different aromas. On the other hand, your throat is a pathway that allows foods and various fluids to travel down the oesophagus to the stomach. For the uninitiated, the oesophagus is a hollow tube extending from your throat towards the stomach. Also, it helps air to reach the lungs.

Diagnosis of Ear, Nose & Throat related conditions
The ears are sensory organs that are connected not only to hear but also to give you a sense of balance. The nose is also a sensory organ that not only gives you a sense of smell but also offers a partial sense of taste for yourself. By humidifying the air we breathe, the nose also plays an important role and works to prevent germs from entering the body. The throat provides the airway to access the lungs, as well as the food and water pathway to get into the digestive tract. If ear, nose, and throat care is not taken seriously it can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life.
Lump inside the neck
The beginning of a lump in the neck can be the sign nose cancer, thyroid, lymphoid, and other ENT cancers. A lump can be produced from the thyroid gland in the lower front part of the neck, particularly if when you move your neck up and down and witness some swallowing in the neck. Not all lumps in the neck are cancer signs; there can be causes, such as an inflamed gland.
Bleeding in the nose
Nose Bleeding usually occurs due to injury to the nose lining, often due to dry weather, infection or allergy. Nose Bleeding can also be a sign of nose cancer, particularly if the bleeding tends to occur in small amounts, or occurs with a headache or unpleasant odour, then it is necessary to get your problem monitored.
Ulcer or Swelling inside the mouth
A doctor will look at a swelling, ulcer or sore area in the mouth which does not go away within a week. Ulcers that come and go in multiple mouth areas are generally non-cancerous and are known as aphthous ulcers. Ulcers usually occur due to a throat infection.
Voice hoarseness can be a sign of mouth cancers and can it can also be a symptom of thyroid cancer as well. Nerves flow directly behind the thyroid gland to the vocal cords and can be affected by cancer within the gland.
Ear problem or pain does not always mean an ear infection, but can be due to nose or throat disease or tumor. Ear cancers may present as the only symptom with a blocked ear or sometimes unexplained pain or discomfort around the ear.
Some lumps may be left alone or treated with medication, while others may require further research. In the case of a thyroid lump, an ultrasound scan and a fine needle biopsy can help to determine the chance of cancer, and hence the need for surgery. Several lumps in the neck can be removed by giving local anaesthesia, while others may require general anaesthesia (full-body anaesthesia). A CT or MRI scan can sometimes provide useful information before determining whether the lump should be removed.
Nasal endoscopy requires the passing of a thin flexible camera into the nose to inspect the nose and throat problem. This test only takes a couple of minutes and is usually painless.
To confirm the diagnosis, a tissue sample is sent to the laboratory for suspected cancer inside the nose or throat. Local anaesthesia and an endoscope are used to direct the biopsy, this can be performed in the clinic for nasal cancer.
Different Conditions treated by the Ear, Nose and Throat Care Department?
What are the diseases/conditions treated by the Ear, Nose and Throat Care Department?
While it is a common misconception that ENT care is primarily concerned with basic issues such as loss of hearing or a sore throat, you must understand that it includes a wide ground of issues. Though these three- ears, nose, and throat, are the broad names in the list, ENT care includes every problem related to your face, your sinuses, and the neck. Our centre for paediatric and adult ear, nose, throat care is considered one of the best hospitals for ENT in Hyderabad for instant and accurate diagnosis. Some of the most common ear problems, nose, and throat infection are diagnosed at our hospital.
A full and detailed ENT examination includes a proper inspection of your ears, nose, and throat, in addition to your face and neck. Every disorder of the ear is diagnosed by first engaging in a general screening process and then using pressure to examine the eardrum fluids. This process is also known as pneumatic otoscopy or tympanometry. The specialty nasal test is regularly completed with a spotlight or reflector and a handheld speculum that enables us to check the nasal septum better. The nose will usually be checked before and after the use of a decongestant nozzle splash. The most novel element of the ENT appointment is an inspection of the voice box and the nose end using hand-held glasses at the mouth opening. The inspection of the throat is delivered carefully and covers the lymph nodes, salivary glands, and the thyroid gland. Testing of overall fitness and the cardiopulmonary order terminates the routine check-up. The ear, nose, and throat examination are not usually painful, although some subjects find that studying the mouth may gag them. We have some of the best ENT doctors in Hyderabad.
