Our expert says:
Polyps are enlarged soft tissue lining of the nose, not a tumour, and you can't remove all the soft tissue lining from the nose, as you need this to warm the air and catch germs when you breathe. Polyps tend to grow back unless the underlying irritation, allergy, or infection is controlled. Using an aerosol corticosteroid nose spray may slow or prevent recurrences.
