Picture of Vocal Cord Nodules (Teacher's Nodules)
This page was last updated: April 21, 2020
Picture of bilateral vocal cord nodules (teacher's / singer's / preacher's nodules).  As these names imply, vocal nodules are caused by voice abuse and produce a hoarse breathy voice.  These lesions are benign.  They are bilateral and face each other.  They grow at the junction of the anterior and middle thirds of the vocal cords.  Occasionally, a small capillary ruptures inside the nodule and makes it look red (hemorrhagic nodule).
