Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder where the red blood cells that carry oxygen are curved like a sickle instead of round and soft like a disc. The misshapen cells are sticky, making it hard for blood to flow normally and consequently there is a lack of oxygen in the body, causing possible damage and pain. Sickle cell disease is passed down in families, and more common in people from African and Spanish-speaking regions.

Vocal nodules are benign (non-cancerous) masses that form on both vocal folds (cords). These structures open for breathing, close for swallowing, and vibrate as air passes through to produce sound. Nodules can interrupt normal vocal fold vibrations, causing vocal difficulties. Treatment is necessary to prevent the nodules from turning into hard callouses.

As a locally aggressive cancer, SNUC can have a variable course. Because it is aggressive, it is often treated with more than one modality, and modern treatment plans include surgery, radiation, and possibly chemotherapy. Non-surgical treatments are sometimes used as well.

Sinus and nasal passages can become inflamed leading to a headache. Headache is one of the key symptoms of patients diagnosed with acute or chronic sinusitis. In addition to a headache, sinusitis patients often complain of pain and pressure around the eyes, across the cheeks and the forehead, achy feeling in the upper teeth, fever and chills, facial swelling, nasal stuffiness and yellow or green discharge.

The body's nasal and sinus membranes have similar responses to viruses, allergic insults, and common bacterial infections. Membranes become swollen and congested. This congestion causes pain and pressure; mucus production increases during inflammation, resulting in a drippy, runny nose. These secretions may thicken over time, may slow in their drainage, and may predispose to future bacterial infection of the sinuses.
