2. Vocal Cord Growths

Growths on the vocal cords are another cause of dysphonia, and there are several types. Nodules are growths that appear on the folds due to injury or extended overuse of the voice.1‘Hoarse Voice (Dysphonia).’ Hoarse Voice (Dysphonia): Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention, www.nationwidechildrens.org/conditions/hoarse-voice-dysphonia. Polyps are small clumps of cells caused by vocal abuse.

Cysts are a rarer vocal cord growth. They may be caused by mucus glands in the vocal folds becoming clogged, which can occur due to overuse.2‘Vocal Cord Nodules, Polyps, and Cysts: Condition: UT Southwestern Medical Center.’ Condition | UT Southwestern Medical Center, utswmed.org/conditions-treatments/vocal-cord-nodules-polyps-and-cysts/. Human papillomavirus (HPV) can also cause warts on the vocal cords, which can induce dysphonia.
