Our Approach to Treating

Benign Vocal Cord Lesions

What Sets Us Apart 

At NYU Langone, experts from our Voice Center use sophisticated diagnostic technologies and nuanced methods of voice analysis to identify and treat any noncancerous lesions—including benign growths and scarring—that develop on the vocal cords.

A lesion may develop after an isolated incident in which too much strain is put on the vocal cords or because of repeated patterns of voice use that, over time, cause injury. If left untreated, a benign vocal cord lesion may affect vocal cord function and change the way your voice sounds.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Doctors at NYU Langone offer nonsurgical treatments to improve the quality of your voice and relieve your symptoms. If further treatment is needed, your doctor may recommend steroid therapy or surgery.
