Benign mass lesions

Benign mass lesions of the vocal fold are masses located on the surface or within the vocal fold. These include polyps, cysts, nodules, bamboo nodes, edema, granuloma, keratosis, papilloma and other masses. Benign mass lesions may induce hoarseness because of their additional mass and can therefore be ‚heard’.

We recommend phonomicrosurgical removal with high precision instruments or specialized fiber-guided lasers. In most cases after adequate microsurgery, benign mass lesions will not recur again.
