Voice Disorders

Voice disorders are often caused by vocal abuse (talking at an increased pitch, yelling, singing). Vocal abuse can cause cord nodules or polyps on both vocal cords. People with voice disorders can experience the following symptoms:

  • Hoarseness
  • Breathiness
  • A "rough" voice
  • A "scratchy" voice
  • Harshness
  • Decreased pitch range
  • Voice and body fatigue
