As it gets harder you've heard a people
get nodules and that looks like a little pimpleon the side of the vocal chord. It could be anywhere on the vocal chord it's usually atwhere the person breaks in their voice.

have it remove you may not have the abilitiesthat you once had before you had the nodule or the polyp especially in flexibility wiseor range sometimes.
