Vocal cord nodules may be recurrent. The common cause of nodule is misuse of our voice apparatus. Suggest consult speech therapist for advise on voice modulation. Avoid speaking in loud voice . Voice rest is the best treatment during acute episodes. Other causes like allergy, chronic sinusitis, acid regurgitation in GERD should be excluded.
