Nasal polyps can usually be managed by the use of an inhaled nasal steroid.  However, if the polyps are large and causing significant obstruction  to nasal airflow, that would prevent contact of the steroid with the surface of the polyps, inhalation therapy alone may not suffice.  In such circumstances, surgical removal may be necessary, followed by nasal steroid inhalation to prevent recurrence.

Good luck
