Sinus polyps/ cysts in my 11 year old

Hi, my 11 year old has been dealing with daily chronic headaches for a year now. He recently had a CT scan which showed cysts/polyps in his right sphenoid sinus and his right maxillary sinus of approx. 1.5 cm. We see an ENT next week, but I am interested in learning more. Are these the cause of his headaches? Is the size of them large or normal? Will they remove them? Any info would be appreciated!

Yes, that could be the cause of the headaches.  In adults, they sometimes respond to Nasonex, but with an 11 year old, I don't know.  Otherwise, they will probably have to be removed, but the ENT will give you the best advice.
