I recently had a ct scan and I was wondering if the following is norma "
i had a mva 3 months and i had a ct scan and in my report was the following :
swelling of the inferior nasal turbinate mucosa. left mastoid air cells are hypoaerated but this appears to be developmental. there are also tiny lymph nodes in the posterior cervical soft tissues. most are small in size the largest is 1.3 cm in diameter. Is there anything I have to worry about?
If you have swelling of the inferior turbinate and swollen lymph nodes in the cervical region, then in all probability the swollen inferior turbinate is not due to MVA but due to chronic inflammation as in sinusitis. Do discuss this with your ENT doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
