A contact ulcer occurs as a result of tearing forces between the vocal cords. Most prominent symptoms are hoarseness , sore throat and dysphagia. Diagnosis is made by physical examination and, sometimes, biopsy. Treatment is symptomatic. Voice rest of at least 6 weeks is extremely important for a full recovery.
