    Sinus Issue: CT Scan Ordered; Thoughts?

    Symptoms: congestion right side of nose only; snorting; postnasal drip; occasional sneezing bouts; yellow/light green mucus coughed up on occasion; off and on nasal pain right side only; infrequent headaches; snoring

    Visited ENT today and had nasal endoscopy put up nostrils. No polyps or other obstructions detected. Said sinus area looked slightly irritated.

    In any event, a CT scan was ordered which kind of kind me off-guard. Sensitive subject because my wife had a nasal obstruction which ultimately turned out to be non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (I realize you can't catch lymphoma)

    This a common follow-up? Just trying to see if anyone has been through similar. Thanks.

    It will reveal more in other sinuses than just what an ENT can observe with a scope.

    I've had x-rays, not ct. Have you had a nasal swab done and a culture of the mucus?

    Better to know than not......the fear of what it could be based on your wife's experience is normal.

    Please let us know the outcome.....but do have a nose swab done regardless.

    It's all a matter of perspective!
