what is a visual examination of the nose?
By means of a visual examination of the nose (nasendoscopy or nasopharyngoscopy), the ENT doctor can view your nose from the inside. This is often necessary to find out where your complaints come from.
what happens after the investigation?
After the investigation
After the examination you may have a tear in your eyes or you may have some mucus coming out of your nose. You will receive a cloth to remedy this.
The ENT doctor will discuss the results of the examination with you.
What possible risks are there?
There are no risks of the treatment.
If the nose is anesthetized (which happens rarely), some anesthetic fluid may also run into the throat, causing you to experience a numbness of the throat as well.
This will disappear within 30 minutes.
