Episode 11

Nodules on the Larynx

Vocal nodules are hard, rough, noncancerous growths on your vocal cords. They can be as small as a pinhead or as large as a pea.

You get nodules from straining or overusing your voice, especially from singing, yelling, or talking loudly or for a long period of time.

Vocal nodules go by other names based on their cause. They’ve been called “singing nodules,” “screamer’s nodules,” and “teacher’s nodules.”

Episode 11 features Tatum, an up & coming vocal artist and musical theatre star, from the Chicago suburbs!  She is currently studying musical theatre, at Ball State.  The year before she started college she developed nodules on her vocal cords which could have sidelined a promising career!
