Following the opening of The Snoring Centre in Whitley Bay to coincide with National Snoring Week there seems to have been a run on snoring stories in the press and media – a coincidence? Or just an increased awareness? Who knows. However one of the latest stories to hit the headlines in The Telegraph appeared following American doctors linking snoring and cancer. This should not be set to scare people who as snore as many people just snore, however there are a few other problems that are often picked up as sign of snoring and this is what the articles aim to highlight. Awareness of other issues early on can prevent or stop further problems arising.
The American studies are early findings and there is still a lot of research to be finished but the findings are interesting. It highlights the small but significant other issues that can be related and due to snoring. The good news is that these things are being highlighted more and more so that people are aware of the issues and are getting them checked earlier.
People can snore from different areas of the throat or palate making some treatments for snoring more or less appropriate. Some people will have other related issues too. Only by checking all of these can treatments be specifically targeted to the type of snoring.
At The Snoring Centre snorers’ are seen by a Consultant who also has experience of picking up those other problems so they are checked as standard at the first visit.
So Do Not Panic – other problems or related issues can then be discussed but most people will have normal and routine snoring associated discussions as to how to improve their snoring!
