Sinusitis is the inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining in the sinuses. The sinuses are air-filled cavities located within the cheekbones, forehead, behind the nose, and between the eyes. The inflammation of the sinus tissue can cause blockage in the sinus openings, which can lead to sinusitis.
Sinusitis is a condition in which the sinuses become inflamed due to a bacterial or viral infection. The symptoms of sinusitis include a stuffy or runny nose, pain and pressure in the sinus area, fever, and headache.
Acute sinusitis is a short-lived condition that usually lasts for a few days or weeks and occurs mostly due to viral infections.
Subacute sinusitis lasts for a few weeks to a month and is usually caused by bacteria and fungi.
Chronic sinusitis lasts for more than 12 weeks, and it can be caused by exposure to allergens or irritants, infections, or structural abnormalities.
Recurrent sinusitis occurs several times a year and can be caused due to allergies or infections.
Diagnosis of sinusitis usually involves a physical examination, medical history review, and imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scan, and MRI.
Risks and complications of sinusitis include the following:-
If left untreated, sinusitis can cause severe complications, including the spread of infection, meningitis, vision problems, and abscess formation. In some cases, untreated sinusitis can cause chronic sinusitis, which can result in long-term symptoms, including congestion, nasal discharge, and loss of sense of smell. It is essential to seek medical attention if you have symptoms of sinusitis to prevent complications.
The cost of sinusitis treatment is between 40,000 to 60,000 INR in India. However, the cost of this treatment also depends on the type of surgery, procedure, facilities provided by your chosen hospital, etc.
Sinusitis treatment is mainly covered under health insurance. Most of the time, the insurer will cover a particular amount for surgical treatment of sinusitis. However, the amount to be covered under insurance depends on the type of policy.
It is important to know that medical treatment for adenoids will not be covered under the insurance policy, it will only cover the cost or expenses of the surgical treatment, but to claim this, you will have to be hospitalized for 24 hours.
Sinusitis is a condition that involves inflammation of the sinuses, which are air-filled cavities located around the nose and eyes. This inflammation can cause a buildup of mucus and lead to symptoms such as congestion, facial pain, and headaches.
Prevention of Sinusitis
To prevent sinusitis, it is important to practice good hygiene, such as washing hands regularly and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. Allergies and other underlying conditions should also be addressed to reduce the risk of sinusitis.
