Ear-Nose and Throat Doctor (ENT) Questions Throat Disorders

There is a weird sound coming from my son’s throat. What could this be?

My son is 10 years old and has a strange sound that is constantly coming from his throat. Doctors are also unable to understand what is triggering this strange sound. This constant sound from his throat leaves him very tired and irritated. What could this be? Please help.

He will need multiple studies including a fiberoptic laryngoscopy. Does he have the sound while sleeping? Does he snore? Is he overweight? Take him to a good Otolaryngologist, the sooner, the better.
Take him to ENT for upper airway exam.
You may need to see an otolaryngologist and have a direct laryngoscopy done, some noises from the throat may be related to the cartilages of the larynx and are probably of no major significance, but an MRI may be indicated to evaluate the larynx structure.
