Laryngeal Nerve Damage

Laryngeal Nerve Damage | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A person's symptoms and the findings of a physical exam make the healthcare provider suspect laryngeal nerve damage. The diagnosis can sometimes be confirmed with swallowing studies.

A procedure called endoscopy may also be used to confirm nerve damage. This involves inserting a thin tube through the mouth and into the vocal cords. The tube has a camera on the end of it that allows the doctor to view the vocal cords and check their function. This procedure, as well as other tests such as x-rays, may also help uncover the cause of the nerve damage.
