Nasal polyps are painless and noncancerous outgrowth, tumor-like mass of naso-sinus mucosal tissues. It usually associates with chronic rhinosinusitis and asthma. It causes significant and persistent nasal congestion, loss of smell or taste, facial pain, frequent sinus infection, and snoring... Aspirin sensitivity, cystic fibrosis and other rare conditions are usually associated with nasal polyps. In aspirin sensitivity, polyps tend to grow back quickly after sinus surgery so this condition should be suspected in patients who have to undergo multiple sinus surgery for nasal polyps. Up to 40% of patients who have both nasal polyps and asthma have aspirin/NSAID sensitivity.
