Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Medications can often shrink or eliminate nasal polyps, but surgery is sometimes needed to remove them. Even after successful treatment, nasal polyps often return. The first-line treatment for nasal polyps is a nasal corticosteroid spray. In other cases, a one-week tapered course of oral corticosteroids such as prednisone may be necessary.
