What Is a Turbinate?
There are a lot of factors and conditions that can affect your ability to breathe. If these conditions are left untreated, they can progress into more serious issues.
Turbinate inflammation is a condition that occurs in the nose and makes it difficult for air to pass through the nasal cavity. Turbinates are small structures inside of the nose that help to humidify the air you breathe in and heat it up. When turbinates become enlarged, they directly impact the flow of air in the nose. If this issue is left untreated, turbinate-reduction surgery may be required.
