Questions and Answers

Do nodules on vocal cords ever go away?


The answer depends on many factors affecting the vocal cord nodules. A vocal cord nodule is a small, non-cancerous, callus-like growths on the vocal cords primarily caused by vocal abuse especially on singers. Vocal cord nodules are known by many names like "Screamer's Nodes", "Teacher's Nodules", "Singer's Nodes" and "Calluses of the vocal fold".

Over time, when you purposely and repeatedly abuse your voice, your vocal cords gets irritated and form a small, soft, swollen tissue growth often called as "soft nodule". And when you continue abusing your voice, the "soft nodule" will further develop into larger nodule and forms fibrous growths or "calluses" and becomes more stiffer. In regards to your query, the "soft" vocal cord nodules usually heals themselves, if you stop abusing your voice and if you properly manage it with medications that soothes the throat and the inflammation. On the other hand, the "hard" vocal cord nodules will not usually go away because it already forms large scar tissues (fibrous growth) or "calluses" which the usual medical intervention is through vocal cord nodule surgery.

Worse, if you are a smoker, your vocal cord nodes are unlikely to go away until you stop smoking. If you don't quit smoking, your singing voice can be permanently damaged, and you won't be able to perform properly as a result.

To treat nodules in vocal cords with tea?


Hot tea can help in calming the vocal cords but if you have existing nodules already, you should not be relying on tea alone for treatment. Tea is better for prevention, but not exactly for treatment. There are several herbalists who might claim that tea would be enough, but that would be very risky because if vocal nodules are not treated right away, the situation can get worse.
