Voice Disorders (dysphonia)

 Speech Menu

Voice disorders (dysphonia) range from mild hoarseness to complete loss of voice and limit the effectiveness of oral communication. Voice disorders are characterized by abnormal pitch, loudness, vocal quality, and/or vocal strain and fatigue resulting from disordered laryngeal function associated with vocal misuse, phonotrauma, medical or physical conditions (e.g., vocal nodules, vocal fold paralysis, laryngeal cancer, laryngopharyngeal reflux) or psychological factors.
