Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Jul 15, 2022 7:09:32 PM

Nosebleeds, at times, can bleed so profusely that they seem more serious than usual and can be frightening to deal with at home. Nosebleeds are so prevalent that up to 60 percent of the population has them. Though common and typically normal, it's not unheard of for people to go to ER for treatment when the bleeding persists or occurs more frequently. For many people, it’s standard practice to go to the emergency room or a primary physician for symptoms or issues that affect their ears, noses, and throats.

ENT doctors/specialists, also known as otolaryngologists, are well versed in diagnosing and treating common and severe medical disorders that impair the function, health, and in some cases, the appearance of the nose, throat, or ears. They also provide medical and surgical care for seemingly common medical concerns that can impact daily living and overall quality of life like nosebleeds.
