Nasal obstruction is a common ENT problem. Common causes of nasal obstruction included deviated septum, nasal polyps, and enlarged turbinates. A persistent stuffy nose is not normal and a blockage in the nasal cavity can worsen snoring and possibly sleep apnoea. There are many different causes of nasal obstruction that fall into two categories: anatomical and non-anatomical. The most common anatomical cause is an abnormality in the nasal septum (the cartilage between the two sides of the nose) or the bones inside the nose called turbinates. Common non-anatomical causes include nasal polyps, and chronic sinus disease also known as sinusitis.

By assessing the background and cause for nasal obstruction the right treatment whether medical or surgical can discussed to help both your nasal symptoms and possibly snoring.
