The Clinical Hospital of Unicamp promoted the campaign of World Voice Day on Tuesday (16), from 8 to 16 hours in Otolaryngology Department. The campaign goal is to guide people as to voice problems that can interfere with quality of life and labor relations. The action provided guidance professionals did previous assessments of people who participated.

The HC serves on average 1000 patients per year with vocal problems. The vocal cords are responsible for vibration that produces the voice and become overwhelmed when they are heavily used, explains Agrício Nubiato Crespo, head of the Department of Otolaryngology, Faculty of Medical Sciences. Therefore, the people most affected by voice problems are professionals who depend on it to work as teachers, for example.

There are some symptoms that may be indicative of wear in the voice, such as hoarseness lasting more than two weeks, coughing, constant pain throat, feeling of discomfort when swallowing food and loss of voice. The laryngitis is the appearance of small cysts, nodules or polyps and are also some of the most common problems that can cause vocal disorders. Among patients with vocal problems at the HC, Carlos Chone, otolaryngologist and professor of FCM, says the biggest challenge is to get them to quit.

Despite showing a significant increase in the level of consciousness of the people about the problems related to voice, Brazil still ranks among the countries with the highest incidence of laryngeal cancer. In total 15 000 cases are diagnosed each year, more than half of them fatal.

Risk factors for the emergence of voice-related illnesses are alcohol abuse, smoking and pollution. The doctor remembers that overuse of the voice is an aggravating factor. Scream very loud and constantly talk can bring problems. The sudden temperature changes and exposure to environments with dust and mold mainly affect allergy sufferers. Avoiding harmful practices, Agrício indicates the consumption of at least eight glasses of water per day and the demand for specialized medical care if any symptoms arise.
