Throat polyp
My father is having throat hoarseness from 20 days. We have consulted ENT and they did a throat endoscopy. Confirmed that it is throat polyp and there are no medicines and needs to be removed by surgery(laser).. I'd like to know if there are any medicines that we can try without going for surgery and also if there are any precautions my dad can take to nake sure polyp is not growing. And can we be sure that this is not cancerous( doctor said it's not).. Attached is the report. Please suggest.
