Ulcer/granuloma (Contact)

Vocal cords are responsible for the production of a 'voice' in humans. A contact ulcer or granuloma is an ulcer of the vocal cords. It occurs as a result of voice overuse. 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.
