I was wondering if anyone suffers from chronic hoarseness and was sarcoid the cause ? The reason I am asking is because I have been dealing with hoarseness since 11/05 , this was when I first started down the road to sarcoidosis. Up until recently the hoarseness has been on the back burner but after getting a second opion at a local University for my pulmonary sarcoidosis they suggested I consult with an ENT . So I did and it seems that I have right vocal cord damage which causes the hoarseness . I have to have a thyroid scan done and a ct of the neck and chest. According to the ENT the damage could be caused by my thyroid the inflamation I have in my chest or a tumor pressing on a nerve either in my neck or chest.
So any info would be appreciated.
