Diagnostic Laryngoscopy with Biopsy

Problems with your throat can often occur throughout a person’s lifetime. A laryngoscopy is a type of examination that allows the doctor to see your voice box, vocal cords and the back of the throat using a special flexible scope. If you are suffering from an ear, nose and throat problem or have endured an injury, you can schedule your diagnostic laryngoscopy with biopsy at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you with I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need a diagnostic laryngoscopy with biopsy?

This procedure allows the doctor to figure out answers to a few common problems, such as:

  • Ear and throat pain
  • Voice problems, such as hoarseness, breathiness, no voice or a weak voice
  • Difficulty swallowing, mucus with blood or a lump in the throat
  • Injuries to the throat, blockages in your airway and throat narrowing

The procedure helps to remove any foreign objects that are currently in the throat, collect samples of your tissues, get rid of polyps on the vocal cords and laser treatment. The procedure can also detect if you have cancer in your larynx.

How is the diagnostic laryngoscopy with biopsy procedure performed?

With a flexible laryngoscopy, a thin scope is put into your mouth to get an idea of what’s going on in your throat. A medicine might be given to help dry the secretions up in your throat and nose so that the doctor can easily see into your throat. Generally, a topical anesthetic is used to help numb your throat.

The scope is inserted through the nose and moved down into your throat. While the scope passes down the throat, another medicine might be sprayed to make sure your throat stays numb. Depending on the situation, a medicine might be sprayed into your nose to help open the nasal passages.

What is recovery like after a diagnostic laryngoscopy with biopsy?

Your throat might be a little sore after the procedure, but it shouldn’t take long for it to recover. With the biopsy, it can take a few days before the doctor will be able to determine what they are dealing with.

How much does a diagnostic laryngoscopy with biopsy cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,570, versus having to pay $35,700 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
