Vocal cord paralysis
Vocal cord paralysis is a medical condition in which one or both of the vocal cords are unable to move properly. This can cause a variety of symptoms, including hoarseness or changes in the voice, difficulty speaking or swallowing, and shortness of breath.
Vocal cord paralysis occurs when one or both of the vocal cords, which are the muscles that control the movement of the vocal cords during speech, become paralyzed or weakened. When this happens, the vocal cords are unable to open and close properly, resulting in a change in the voice or difficulty speaking.
