Ear, nose, and throat concerns may seem minor in the beginning but if overlooked, these often lead to irreversible damage. The ear, nose, and throat are more sensitive and are prone to infections and other conditions. Because of this, it’s our responsibility to seek medical help to keep them in check.
Our team of medical professionals at ENT Associates of San Diego are equipped with advanced knowledge to help you maintain good overall health for your senses of hearing, smell, and taste. If you experience suspicious signs and symptoms related to the ear, nose, and throat, contact us immediately.
Our ability to hear is vital in learning and staying safe from danger. The ear is one of the body’s most sensitive structures, and because of this, it’s important to keep your ears healthy.
Patients should look out for pain in the ears, difficulty hearing, discharge running out of the ear, and itching or irritation in and around the ear. If you are experiencing these symptoms, schedule a consultation with us.
Our nose and sinuses are responsible for delivering a healthy supply of oxygen to our body. If this is compromised, other parts of the body will have trouble functioning as well.
Signs and symptoms to look out for in the nose and sinuses are runny nose, stuffy nose, facial pain, headache, difficulty breathing, and sneezing. Patients can treat nose and sinus problems with over-the-counter medication for 2-3 days. If symptoms persist, the patient will need to visit an ENT doctor.
The throat and neck are affected when we have a cold, flu, or strep throat. Problems in the throat and neck can prevent us from eating and drinking properly and from communicating properly. Consult with a doctor immediately to learn if the cause of your neck symptoms is infection, injury, or both.
Children are more prone to diseases related to the ears, nose, and throat. Since they encounter many people in school, run in playgrounds, and touch almost everything they are curious about, it is easy for them to catch diseases.
Our team at ENT Associates of San Diego is committed to providing safe and effective healthcare for children. We make sure that each consultation is fun and engaging for children so that the process goes smoothly.
Airborne irritants like dust and smoke can negatively affect our voice and swallowing. Careers that rely on constantly using one’s voice can also damage our voice box.
To prevent irreversible damage to your voice box and vocal cords, seek immediate medical professional help.
Our sleep is heavily affected by the way we breathe. If our breathing is obstructed, we can experience issues like snoring and sleep apnea.
Snoring may seem harmless, but patients must be wary of serious issues like loud and chronic snoring, fatigue, headaches, and gasping for air. Gasping for air in your sleep can be an indication of sleep apnea.
