Vocal Nodules

My 4 year old has developed nodules on his vocal cords. He does not make much noise in general. Can you advise what treatment we should give him? What home treatments we should give him? I appreciate your response.

Voice therapy with a speech pathologist is the treatment of choice for young children with vocal cord nodules. If the nodules persist after appropriate treatment, I would suggest re-assessment.

Good luck!
