Vocal nodules

Small swellings or elevations found at the junction of the middle and anterior thirds of the vocal fold. They form in response to vibratory trauma, as when an individual abuses or overuses the voice. Some resolve with rest and voice therapy alone; others are proven to be irreversible over time and may raise the option of vocal fold microsurgery.
