It is tempting to look at the morphology of nasal polyps and dismiss them as an advanced form of congestion. In a sense, that’s precisely what they are. But nasal polyps can levy a far greater toll than mere discomfort. In some cases, if left unchecked nasal polyps can profoundly alter your quality of life.
Consider the extraordinary story of a Colorado man who lost his sense of smell for ten years due to sinus infections and nasal polyps:
Without smell, Mattos couldn’t fully taste. . . .“The subtleties of food are essentially lost. Most things become pretty bland,” said Mattos.
