Some of the main symptoms of nasal polyp are similar to flu and cold symptoms. But flu and cold symptoms will disappear after a few days. Symptoms of nasal polyp will not disappear if left untreated. Immediately see an ENT doctor if you feel you have symptoms of nasal polyps.
Complications that can occur due to nasal polyps are:

Sinus infection occurs because the fluid in the sinuses cannot flow out due to polyps. Here are some sinus infection symptoms:
- The pain in the face, especially around the infected sinuses
- Nasal congestion and watery
