Hoarseness is having difficulty producing sound when trying to speak or a change in the pitch or quality of the voice. Hoarseness is usually caused by a problem in the vocal cords. Most cases of hoarseness are associated with inflammation of the larynx (Laryngitis) and occurence of Vocal cord nodules. Vocal cord nodule is a mass of tissue that grows on the vocal folds (vocal cords). A vocal cord nodule reduces or obstructs the ability of the vocal folds to create the rapid changes in air pressure which generate human speech. Females are most likely to develop nodules. The nodules appear as symmetrical swellings on both sides of the vocal cords. The cause of these formations is usually strenuous or abusive voice practices such as yelling and coughing.
Hoarseness that lingers for weeks or months may be caused by a variety of problems and requires expert opinion in certain cases especially malignancy.
Common causes which can be managed at home include Allergies, coughing, excessive use of alcohol or tobacco, excessive use of the voice (as in shouting or singing), Gastroesophageal reflux or regurgitation, inhaling irritating substances, prolonged/ excessive crying (in children), post nasal drip, Throat infections and Viral illness.
Presentation of hoarseness usually varies from person to person depending upon the intensity and nature of the complaint. Unless otherwise cared for, sustained hoarseness will mute the voice totally.
Common symptoms are tickling sensation or sensation of foreign material in the throat, inability to produce expected clear sounds, change in voice with or without throat pain, pain/difficulty in swallowing.
SELF CARE TIPS
Take proper rest. Crying, shouting and excessive talking or singing should be controlled. Whispering should be avoided as it can strain the vocal cords more than speaking does.
