Thanks Ten xx
I'm unsure of the connection between the brain scan and a nasal polyp. But I don't think having just one polyp can be that rare. When I went into hospital with a bleeding one many years ago, it was just the one I had. Was told I'd get more but haven't yet.
One polyp (unilateral) is not unusual and is almost always not malignant.
However unilateral polyps must always be investigated further (MRI scan) just to exclude the outside possibility of it being malignant OR not a nasal polyp at all.
It is not the number of polyps that it is important, it is if they are unilateral OR bilateral that may be important and worth further investigation.

Morning OG and Sqad.

He's had the MRI scan and was sent for this one to find out if it is attached to his brain prior to removal.
