When the throat is infected by HPV, which is rare, it becomes a challenging condition for doctors to treat. This chronic condition is known as recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) and causes benign growths to develop on the airways. Currently, there is no cure available, but with ongoing research there may be some hope for this problematic disease. Professor Martin Anthony Birchall, a top ENT surgeon, gives us insight into this rare condition.
Professor Birchall talks about how chronic throat problems should be diagnosed, and the tailored treatment which should be given to each patient.
