Don't procrastinate if the symptoms last more than three weeks. CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN — He has the equipment and training to thoroughly examine your vocal cords. Abnormal bleeding or an unusual discharge from a body opening usually stems from infection, ulcer or tumor. The true cause can be detected in less than 24 hours.
