TO: DOCTORS AND PATIENTS

Hello everyone!

A friend of mine had pain and discomfort in her throat and lost her voice. Her doctor told her her vocal cords are inflamed and she has calcifications on the petiole of the epiglottis and the anterior commissure.

Doctors, can you please explain what this condition is and what the prognosis and treatments are?

If you're a patient and have had this condition, can you please share from a personal standpoint what was done in your case and anything else you think my friend should know in regard to this condition and the treatment of it.

Thank you very much, everyone,
Marc Maurice Masson
