Nasal & Throat Congestion

I am having problem with breathing and my throat chokes and also having problem with saliva intake. I went through a CT scan. I found that the sinus region has some tissue developed on the right side of the nose internally. I have observed that i am having major problem in breathing specially through the right side and my throat is always dry. What can be done for the same as i am having quite some difficulty?

Hi...., looks like you might have developed nasal polyp, which is causing you these symptoms.... Nasal polyps are abnormal growths inside the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses.... Nasal polyps are a side effect of some other health condition — most often allergies or an infection from a virus or bacteria.... There are several treatment options for nasal polyps, which includes nasal decongestants, oral corticosteroid, antibiotics....Surgical options are functional endoscopic sinus surgery....
