Head and Neck Tumors
Head and neck tumors are lesions that develop in the facial skin, nose or sinuses, mouth, throat, voice box, lymph nodes or thyroid glands. Tumors may be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
If a mass is found, we will perform tests to determine whether the tumor is benign or malignant. If cancer is present, we work in close coordination with the Aurora Cancer Center. Our ENT physicians provide surgical expertise and play a central role in coordinating the cancer care team. Treatment options depend on tumor size and where it is located.
Our ENT specialists treat a wide variety of nasal and sinus disorders.
Our doctors specialize in the care of chronic and recurrent sinus problems. Finding and managing underlying problems like deviated septum, nasal polyps and allergies is important to help control sinus and nasal problems.
Two of the more advanced treatments we offer include image-guided endoscopic sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
ENTs diagnose and treat a number of conditions that can lead to snoring and sleep apnea. Sometimes snoring and sleep apnea are caused by problems with structures in the nose, mouth or throat, such as a deviated septum or enlarged adenoids. Aurora BayCare ENTs perform surgical procedures to correct these problems with the goal of improving snoring and sleep apnea.
The thyroid is a small gland at the bottom of the neck. This gland makes a hormone that helps regulate your body's metabolism. The parathyroid glands are small glands on either side of the thyroid responsible for regulating calcium levels in the bloodstream. Overactive or underactive thyroid glands may cause ENT disorders.
At Aurora BayCare, we offer surgical procedures to treat thyroid disorders, including parathyroid disease and thyroid disease. When thyroid conditions are cancerous, we work in close collaboration with the Aurora Cancer Center.
Larynx and Voice Disorders
ENTs at Aurora BayCare diagnose and treat many larynx (voice box) and voice disorders in both children and adults. Some of the conditions Aurora ENTs treat include swallowing disorders and vocal cord dysfunction.
