Vocal cord nodules refer to painless, hard, callus growths that form on the vocal cords. These nodules are benign (i.e., non-cancerous). Vocal cord nodules usually appear in pairs, typically in the midline with one node forming on each of the vocal cords. Homeopathic medicines for vocal cord nodules provide symptomatic relief and help reduce the size of the nodules with time. Cuasticum, Phosphorous, and Belladonna are the top homeopathic remedies used to treat vocal cord nodules.

Homeopathic medicines for vocal cord nodules.

Vocal cords are a pair of band-like elastic muscle tissues. They lie within the larynx, i.e., the voice box at the top of the trachea. They function to regulate airflow into the lungs, protect the airway from choking and for voice production. They open (abduct) during air inhalation and close (adduct) during swallowing and voice production. In the initial stages, there appears redness and swelling of the vocal cords. With time the swelling turns into a hard lump or node over the vocal cords. They are also known as singers’ nodules. Formation of nodules on the vocal cords interferes with voice production and leads to variable changes in voice.

Other symptoms include pain or discomfort in the throat, a sensation of a lump in the throat, neck pain, throat clearing and, coughing. Vocal fatigue is also noted along with the above symptoms in most of the cases. The intensity of the symptoms is seen to increase as the size of the nodules on the vocal cord increases with time.
