It depends on how serious the polyp is but this usually just takes a few minutes, especially if your doctor is using laser. There are even hospitals who can do this as an outpatient process only. Of course, more serious conditions will require a much more complicated treatment as well.

They usually do it via surgery or sometimes, they would do a laser surgery. It really depends on the severity of the condition. There are also cases where drugs are just prescribed to let the nodules subside, but this is usually just for less serious conditions.

It is best to follow the doctor's prescribed treatment whenever you find out that you have a nodule. Self-medication outside of the natural remedies we've suggested will only put you more at risk. Also, if you smoke, even a little, you need to quit smoking before your vocal cords will heal properly, even after surgery.

You should immediately make some changes to your diet, and stick to them. Remember that vocal cord damage is like any other muscle or other physical damage to the body. It takes time to fix, and time to heal. I'm assuming you already know this, as you mentioned not singing for the last three and a half months, but were you observing proper dietary considerations and not smoking during that time?

I'd recommend that you read through some of the dietary tips in our article on diets that help get rid of vocal nodules, and of course, make sure you're being careful how much you're using your voice until it heals properly.

How long does it take to completely heal vocal nodules with this?

Lately, I have been experiencing some of the symptoms specially the feeling like there's a lump inside my throat. I think it started years ago. But I just noticed it when I sung for a choir. The breathlessness and scratchy voice appeared too. I hope you could answer this. Thanks.
